Hailing from Qimen county (spelled “Keemun” on old maps), named after Mount Qi which provides perfect conditions for tea cultivation in Anhui province, this exceptionally refined black tea has been mellowed through a unique local recipe with particularly slow withering and oxidizing, giving it gently nuanced flavors and aromas.
A superb step above the classic black teas, “Grand Keemun” is perfect for those who love a deep red cup with full-bodied flavor, malty and caramel. Classic smooth black tea with a sugary flavor.
Perfect for iced tea, try it with lemon and honey. Also very good with milk and sugar.
