Keemun Black Tea

Produced in Qimen County and the neighboring areas close to Yellow Mountain in Anhui Province, China, Keemun black tea is a competitive type of black tea.
This is attributed to the high yield and excellent quality of tea trees growing in the region thanks to the rich soil and favorable weather.
Tea production in Qimen County has a long history which can be traced back to the Tang Dynasty. The county was initially teemed with green tea and then turned to produce black tea in the Qing Dynasty over 100 years ago.

Keemun black tea, or “Keemun Scent” and “the Queen of Fragrance”, is featured by fine picking and fabricating process, firm and slender figure, dark and sleek color and luster, faint fragrance of honey or orchid, as well as long-lasting freshness.
 The liquor is characterized by bright red as well as sweet and mellow savor.
Keemun black tea can be drunk without adding anything so as to taste its peculiar fragrance, or added with milk, granulated sugar and lemon to obtain different flavor.
Being famous at home and abroad for its excellent quality, Keemun black tea is one of the three major sorts of tea with intense fragrance which are globally recognized.
It is mainly exported to dozens of countries and regions including Britain, Holland, Germany, Japan, and Russia.
Meanwhile, it has been serving as national tea gifts over these years.
