From t Leaf T

Regarded by many as China’s finest black tea. The name Keemun comes from the county Qimen in Anhui province. The liquor is reddish brown in colour accompanied by a lightly roasted taste and aroma.

The recommended brewing time for this tea is 3-5 minutes, but I think over 3 takes it into tannin territory. I really really really didn’t like this, even with it being touted as “China’s finest black tea”. It tasted heavy and almost metallic, with a furry aftertaste that stayed on the back of your tounge. Though I imagine Ceylon drinkers would enjoy a cup of Keemun, also if you are partial to Formosa Oolong or drinking blood.
