Detail

This black tea is the finest quality Keemun.

It is renowned for its unique aroma and malty flavor.

 

Story: It is extremely difficult to find, being one of the rarest and most highly sought-after teas in Anhui. Deliberately produced in very small quantities, Imperial Keemun owes its excellent reputation to its unique aroma and malty flavor.

Keemun, a small town in Anhui Province, is situated in the south of the Huang Shan (Yellow mountains), an area thought to offer the most perfect weather conditions for tea growing. This region is famous for its green teas, which are among the finest in China, but the production of black tea is relatively recent. In 1876, Yu Ganchen, an important government official from Keemun, retired to his native village after spending his career in Fujian, the main region for black tea production at the time. He had had plenty of time to become familiar with the manufacturing techniques used in the making of black tea and decided to launch a venture in Keemun. The result was original and delicious; the Keemun teas he produced offered a unique aromatic bouquet combining gamy notes with richness.

Keemun is what in China is known as “refined” tea (as against “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). The very regular appearance of the leaves of the beautiful Keemun tea is striking. The standard grade of Keemun tea is used as the basis for a number of blends and scented teas.
