Detail
This Grand Cru won us over with its complex flavors. Its woody, spicy, cocoa, fruity and honeyed notes emerge in succession, blending harmoniously together.

For the origin of our newest black tea, we look to the Anhui Province, one of China’s major tea regions. Keemun is among the most famous and prized teas produced there and this one particularly stands out as a jewel among the ones that are currently being produced.
Qimen is what in China is known as a “refined” tea (as against the “unrefined” teas which are manufactured using the leaves in the just-plucked state, then cutting, grading and sorting them into different categories at the end of the manufacturing process).


François-Xavier Delmas' choice:
“If you like quince paste you’ll love this “fragrant spiral” from Anhui. A flavorsome Grand Cru, long in the mouth.”

Specificities:
- Origin: Anhui, China
- Tea color: black tea

Dry leaves:
- Appearance: very nice leaves regularly rolled
- Color: dark brown with golden buds
- Scents: leather, wood, tobacco, cocoa, (vanilla pod)

Brewed leaves (infusion):
- Scents: very fragrant: cocoa, leather, tobacco, fruit (quince, stewed fruit), honey and a hint of undergrowth

Liquor:
- Color: coppery color, a clear and gleaming liquor
- Texture: supple and silky followed by a touch of astringency at the back of the mouth, sustaining the aromatic notes
- Flavors: sweet
- Aromas: lovely complex aromas: waxed wood, spices (clove, nutmeg), cocoa/dark chocolate, fruit (candied orange, quince, stewed fruit), pronounced honey (dark honey), vanilla pod, leather
- Aromatic profile and length in the mouth: a generous start with warm, fruity notes that blend and merge in a harmonious liquor. The finish reveals pronounced honey and vanilla pod notes

Tips: Preparation
With the tasting set: 4 minutes in water heated to 90°C
