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.
The rich, chunky leaves of this particular batch are full of flavour, and compared to other harvests, steamed for a shorter period of time and dried for longer. This results in a duller appearance, but a milder, less astringent taste.
Origin & History
This particular batch of China Black Keemun was farmed organically in the hills of Central Hunan Province, where the southern climate gives the leaves a very distinct character.
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 style of tea.
