Some beautiful things in life are simple. Rich and mellow, this organic tea is an ideal base for blends; it also brews a very enjoyable morning cup. 

About
Keemun (Qimen in pinyin or 祁门 in Chinese characters) is a classic tea style from Huang Shan; the cultivar is ideal for a highly oxidized (black) tea style. This particular grower is farming Keemun trees organically in the highlands of Hunan; the southern climate gives these leaves a very distinct character.

Origin
This batch of tea was farmed organically in the hills of Central Hunan Province. The rich, chunky leaves are full of flavour; compared to other harvests, the leaves of this batch are steamed for a shorter time and dried for a longer time. This results in a duller appearance, but milder, less astringent taste.
