From ESGREEN

Keemun is a historical reputed black tea in China. It was made in year 1875 at Keemun County (Qi-men Xian) at Anhui Province (An-hui Sheng).
The keemun tea leaf is slender and fine, giving the sugary flavor with scent of sweet flowery note, with thick and mellow taste. These distinctive cup characteristics have gained much attention in the international tea profession.

Other Names: Qi Men Hong, Qi Hong, Chinese Red Tea

Grade: Premium

Tea Leaf
Leaf is thin and slender, tightly rolled, with sharp point and containing buds. If poor quality, the leaf is loose, thick and coarse, without the sharp point and not containing bud.
Leaf in dark black color (Wu-run). It looks glossy and luster. For poor quality, the leaf is grayish black color, dull appearance with brownish color.

Aroma and Taste
Dry leaf gives sugar syrup flavor with mild smoky flavor. When brewed, the liquor gives the same aromatic profile. After brewing, the aroma remains on the leaf of good Keemun.
It tastes smooth, brisk with mild green refreshing note. It is different from the commercial versions of this famous tea which is often giving harsh astringency or roughness, or thin and flat taste.
