Keemun Chinese Red Tea
A traditional Chinese red tea is grown in Qimen County of Huangshan, in China's eastern Anhui province. The tea consists of medium-sized, twisted leaves. Its brown infusion features a smooth slighty roasted quality, with a sweet juicy finish. Because of these qualities, Keemuns are often compared to Burgundy wines. "Keemun" was actually the English spelling for "Qimen".
Grown and manufactured in the neighboring Jiangxi Province, this organic and Fair Trade Certified Keemun is a great example of an affordable Keemun.
We recommend black teas to be steeped for 3 to 5 minutes in water heated to a full, rolling boil. For the best flavor, use fresh water whenever possible, and avoid overboiling. Try not to steep your tea longer than necessary, as you’ll extract undesirable bitterness from the leaves. If you want a stronger brew, don’t steep longer, just use more tea. And don’t forget to re-steep your tea leaves to get the most out of your leaf!
