Tea Story

Keemun, the most famous of Chinese black teas, imparts a delicately light and non-astringent flavour, which makes it a great breakfast tea. This premium, special grade version of Keemun black tea, brings a deliciously refined luxury to the daily ritual of tea making. Requiring great skill to produce, the delicate leaf offers a rich, amber liquor that has a mellow yet complex flavour, with hints of smokiness. The wonderful aroma of this exceptional Chinese loose leaf black tea, is enhanced by adding a splash of milk. This brings out its extraordinary, soft floral notes. Though particularly delightful enjoyed at breakfast, this refreshing tea can be taken at any time of day.

Keemun - known in China as ‘Qimen’ - is made from the Chinese version of the tea plant, Camellia Sinensis Sinensis. Its name stems from its place of origin, Qimen County in the Anhui region of China, which is located between the Yellow Mountains and the Yangtze River. During its production, Keemun tea undergoes unusually slow withering and oxidation which creates a nuanced flavour and aroma. Keemun was first produced in the late 1800s. At this time, China was primarily exporting green teas. Keemun’s invention was an attempt to compete with the black teas produced in India. Keemun tea quickly became popular in the West and is used as one of the key components of English Breakfast Tea blends.

Ingredients: Pure Chinese Black Tea.

Delicate and yet decisive
Saturday, 6 April 2019  |  Barbara

Delicate and yet decisive, sharp edged of character and yet flighty, with none of the Indian cloying nuances of bonhomie. Enjoyable and true.
