Pure black tea with a dry fruit note
dried plum, pine, rose

Anhui, China

No. Infusions 3
Amount (tsp. / ml) 1 ½ / 250
Temperature 80-90 °C

What might sound like a daring gustatory experiment, is indeed a magical revelation to the palate: Wine, plum, pine and smoke mingle with orchid floral notes in a complex, sweet cup that satisfies and surprises in equal measures, straight or with a swish of milk.

Hold the milk and sugar! Or so the Chinese would advise, who prefer their Keemun, or Qi Men red tea, pure and unadulterated to let the distinctive flavors “sing.” Legend has it that the tea was developed by a hapless Chinese official who, after losing his job, learned the secrets of black tea production. By 1876 the first Keemun was produced and quickly won over the British, who made it a key ingredient of their English Breakfast tea blend. Start your day with this wonderfully expressive symphony of flavors ranging from wine, plums, pine and smoke all the way to luscious floral notes – a tea that will captivate the palate with a character as bold as it is pleasing.

Bought this looking for a different kind of black tea, and thought that the tasting notes sounded exciting. Flavours mingle together into a funky mix (smoke, plums and pine). Good body, slightly more oily mouthfeel. Not too bitter, low level of tannins.

I found the tea quite invigorating, so wouldnt recommend drinking late at night. However i would strongly recommend the tea itself if a funky tea might be up your alley.

Flavors: Dried Fruit, Pine, Plum, Smoke
