This broad-shouldered tea is the exemplar of its style. The high aromatics of flowers and charcoal mix with the deeper riches of cocoa and sugar. A stately and refined cup.

Harvested and produced April 18, 2023 by Mr. Hu in TaFang town of Qimen County, Anhui Province. It’s made from a local cultivar growing at 660 feet. “Keemun” is the popular English romanization of the proper pinyin “Qimen,” which is pronounced “Chee-mun.” Keemun teas undergo prolonged oxidation in warm, humid environments. This process will often be conducted in enclosed steam rooms to bring a fermented tone to the cup. The drying times at the end of the process may also be extended to bring that smooth toasty/floral quality signature to the style.
