  • Keemun is a type of black tea that originated in Qimen county in the Anhui province of China. It is known for its rich and complex flavor, which is often described as having hints of fruit, cocoa, and smokiness.

  • Keemun is made from the small, tender leaves of the Camellia sinensis var. sinensis plant, which are rolled and oxidized to produce a distinctive aroma and flavor. The tea is often compared to Darjeeling tea from India, but with a more complex and layered taste profile.

  • Keemun, Great Gate, refers to the town and district of the same name in the Anhui province where it is cultivated near the Yangtze River. It is served in town as a welcome for dignitaries. Only the young, hairy buds of the tea plant are used.

  • When processed, the leaves turn sienna-colored, wiry, and strong enough for two infusions. The vermillion waters bring a contemplative taste, recalling semi-sweet chocolate and roasted chestnuts.
