“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.”
