Grand Keemun | Black Tea
The owner's desert island tea! This black tea from China steeps up dark, rich, luxuriant, smooth, slightly sweet, and toasty with an almost cocoa-like note. It is a completely satisfying experience. Keemuns are often compared to Burgundy wines; Grand Keemun would be comparable to a really good Burgundy wine.
All Keemun (sometimes spelled Qimen) tea comes from Anhui province, China. Keemun tea dates back to the mid-1800's, and was produced following techniques that were used to produce Fujian black tea for centuries. The same small leaf cultivar used to produce the famous green tea Huangshan Mao Feng is also used to produce all Keemun tea.
