Until the 1870s, tea in Keemun County, China, was green. Fancying a change, a man called Yu decided to make a black tea instead. The sun drenched valleys of Keemun were ideal for making black tea and the result was special. It caught on, and Keemun tea is now one of the world’s favourites.
It’s delicate and mellow, perfect with or after a meal. Next time you feel like trying something new, treat yourself to a cup.
