Description

Keemun is the most famous of China’s black teas, requiring great skill to produce. The small, delicate leaf provides a rich, brown, lightly scented and almost nutty liquor that is terrific on its own but also takes extremely well to milk, which brings out its extraordinary smoothness.

Taste and Strength
An amber infusion with a nutty charater

When to Drink
Ideal at any time of day

Origin
Keemun, China

Brewing Information
Use boiling water and brew for 3-5 minutes depending on taste. Serve with milk or brew lighter and drink without milk.
