Keemun Black Tea
You could drink Little Red Cup Keemun Black tea because it’s organic. Or you could drink it because it’s Fair Trade. You could drink it because it’s the epitome of simplicity in Chinese tea or you could drink it because it’s whole leaf. We drink it for all those reasons, but mostly because this is one great tea.
Most people experience black tea as a fairly bland brew in a metal teapot in a Chinese restaurant, or else as an adulterated product, such as English Breakfast tea. But ours is a fabulous tea– rich, robust, with wisps and hints of flower and fruit.
Our years in China have left us accustomed to drinking black tea hot and straight. Left to steep, this tea will get fairly strong, so we suggest starting with less tea or more water until you find a brewing strength you enjoy. Keemun Black tea originated in Qimen County, in southern Anhui Province in the late 19th Century.
We are very pleased to be able to offer fully organic, Fair Trade certified Keemun to you. This is not only one of the best black teas made, it is one of China’s best teas ever.
