Organic Loose Leaf Black Tea from the Congou Estate in China. A very distinct and complex flavor: smooth, robust, with fruity and floral notes. The aroma is rich, with an orchid fragrance. One of the Ten Great Chinese Teas (中国十大名茶) or China’s Famous Teas (中国名茶).
Keemun (simplified Chinese: 祁门红茶; traditional Chinese: 祁門紅茶; pinyin: qímén hóngchá; literally “Qimen red tea”) has a relatively short history. It was first produced in 1875 by a failed civil servant, Yu Quianchen, after he traveled to Fujian province to learn the secrets of black tea production. Prior to that, only green tea was made in Anhui. The result exceeded his expectations, and the excellent Keemun tea quickly gained popularity in England, and became the most prominent ingredient of the English Breakfast tea blend.
