Keemun is a black tea grown in Anhui, Central China. It has only been grown there since 1875, which is relatively recent for Chinese tea. It was the first black tea to be produced in Anhui, and is now a much loved tea by many across the world.
This tea is very mild for a black tea, it still has those caramel, charcoal, nutty tastes, but it is not bracing or overwhelming in any way. A delicate flavour for a black tea, it is delicious by itself, or with a very tiny splash of milk (very tiny!)
The aroma is spicy and the colour of the brew is a pleasing medium to dark red.
