Though Keemun tea was only developed in the late 19th century, it is the most popular of Chinese Black teas. The soft, slight spiciness adds a silky sweetness to breakfast blends. Alone, this fully oxidized tea makes for an enjoyable, mellow cup.

I found a tea shoppe in my area called Tin Roof Teas, and lo and behold; they sell this tea. I find it to be similar to an Irish Breakfast, but with a more subtle flavor.
