Keemun, sometimes referred to as the "champagne of black teas" is a classic Chinese black tea made for centuries in Qimen county in Anhui, China, the home of Keemun . The teas from this region are grown in small plots high up on steep mountainsides. Many of the plots are hundreds of years old and were first planted there with cuttings from Fujian, when Europe’s demand for tea caused farmers to seek new growing areas for the valuable crop. This rich black tea is smooth and bold with a slight rose essence and hint of smoke. A classic European breakfast tea; excellent with a dash of cream. 2 tsp. Keemun can be infused with boiling water 3 times.
