Keemun tea from China - without flavoring additives
A classic black tea from China: light, malty, earthy. Just very gentle.
This tea is very different in taste and smell from Indian black teas such as Darjeeling or Assam.
Keemun tea is named after the place where it was originally made. This is the Keemun (Qimen) district of Huangshan City in the Anhui Province.
This tea has a malty, fruity taste that is reminiscent of unsweetened cocoa remind. The tea has a slightly smoky note and the best types have either a fruity or orchid-like scent. This is due to the high proportion of geraniol.
preparationKeemun tea should be infused with boiling water. Since the taste develops very quickly, you should avoid letting it steep for too long.
The steeping time in a large jug is about 2-3 minutes. But just give it a try and let it steep until it suits your taste.
