If you like English Breakfast, you’ll love Keemun. It’s a Chinese tea from Anhui Province, first produced in 1875 by a now famous man named Yu Quianchen. He developed it after travelling to Fujian to learn the secrets of black tea production, and the result was (and still is) wildly popular. It’s fruity, plummy and mildly flowery, with hints of wine and sweet orchid. Delicious either with or without milk.
