A Keemun, well-known black tea from China

A great year for tea lovers, 1876 is when the first Keemun made its debut. And what a magical revelation to the palate: Wine, plum, pine, and smoke mingle with orchid floral notes in a complex, sweet cup that satisfies and surprises in equal measures.

Hold the milk and sugar! Or so the Chinese would advise, who prefer their Keemun, or Qi Men red tea, pure and unadulterated to let the distinctive flavors “sing.” Legend has it that the tea was developed by a hapless Chinese official who, after losing his job, learned the secrets of black tea production. By 1876 the first Keemun was produced and quickly won over the British, who made it a key ingredient of their English Breakfast tea blend. Start your day with this wonderfully expressive symphony of flavors ranging from wine, plums, pine and smoke all the way to luscious floral notes – a tea that will captivate the palate with a character as bold as it is pleasing.

Favorite black

This was my first Keemun. After that, I tried two more, and this is by far my favorite. It’s aromatic, not too strong, but strong enough. It has just a hint of smoky notes, but not as smoky as lapsang for sure — notes of dried plum, very light. I have been re-purchasing this tea and planning to always have some at home.

Das ist ein Tee, wie man ihn lange sucht ...

Wir sind begeistert von diesem Tee. Ganz fein, dennoch stark, aromareich und wohltuend. Wir trinken ihn nicht jeden Tag, aber er muss immer zur Verfügung stehen. Ein ganz besonderer Genuss !

Für mich der perfekte Schwarztee

Ein wie ich finde ganz toller Schwarztee, den ich fast täglich trinke - zu einem sehr fairen Preis, gemessen an der grandiosen Qualität. Hat eine wunderbare Weichheit und gleichzeitig ein sehr vielfältiges Spektrum an Aromen. Toll im ersten und zweiten Aufguss!
