Turn the Page with Keemun Tea

Keemun tea from Keemun County (also known as Qimen), is one of China’s signature black teas. It possesses an incredible flavor profile, the result of over a century of tea crafting. While there are multitudes of grades, (some fetching as much as $1,500/500 grams!), we offer 3 distinct grades: Keemun, our finer Keemun Black Snail and Keemun Mau Feng, the last which we have in a very limited supply!

With a fruity, sometimes smoky fragrance, Keemun tea has its own distinct flavor profile. Keemun tea is created using a very laborious, artisanal 14 step process. This refined process reveals itself in the complexity of flavor. All of our Keemun teas come from the same tea farm in Keemun County, Anhui Province, China.

Zhu Ye Zhong, a tea cultivar (or variety) refined over years of selective breeding, is used for Keemun teas. It contains essential oils also found in lavender, rose, and citronella. These essential oils give Keemuns their piney, dried plum and rose flavors that leave a sweet aftertaste in your mouth. Expand your black tea palette and compare the three Keemuns we carry!
