From New Mexico Tea Company

“Despite its relatively short history (for a Chinese tea!) Keemun became known throughout the world by 1915 and in taste tests conducted by the leading tea companies of the day, was preferred over Darjeeling.
The aroma of Keemun is fruity, with hints of coco and dried plum (but not at all as floral as Darjeeling tea) which creates a distinctive malty taste. The tea can have a more bitter taste and the smokiness can be more defined depending on the variety and how it was processed.”

Origin: Anhui, China"

I got this tea as a sample on one of my trips to the store. (Because I yay for local tea shops!) Anyway, when it is first brewed, there a slight smoky scent. Not enough to bother me though. Then the flavour is cocoa and some dried fruit. It has a nice taste as it cools too.

This is a very smooth black tea from china (Chinese call it red tea and is considered in high demand). This tea has a pleasant aroma, I can’t really get distinct notes from it, however, this could be drunk by any tea drinker. It does have a very light smokeyness which is pleasant. I like to steep it in a teapot for 7 minutes and add a little sugar.

Update: after purchasing 10 different types of Keemun including higher grades, I found the light smokey ness to this tea excellent. This is my favorite Keemun, great job New Mexico tea company!
