What is Keemun tea?

Keemun tea is one of the most famous Chinese black teas. It is grown in Qimen county of Anhui province. Keemun is a common name for different varieties of tea in the region.

What kind of tea is it?

Malty, slightly smoky with notes of chocolate. Keemun tea contains myrcenal, an essential oil specific only to Keemun, of all teas, with unique sweet floral flavor.

Tasting notes in tea reviews

On opening a packet of Keemun tea, you’ll encounter a “very sweet and malty scent” with “dried apricot hints”. When brewed, it creates a bright and beautiful red liquor with a scent of “rich dried fruits with honey and molasses”. Premium grades of keemun will have “a strong cocoa taste and texture, but no bitterness”. Gradually, they reveal notes of “plums, berry, cherry and spices”. The tea “remains creamy and smooth right through to the finish”, but also delivers “that strong breakfast-time kick”.

Tea tips

Keemun teas go through an elaborate production process to maximize their quality. Leaves are picked only in spring and summer, and only the top bud along with the top two or three leaves make the cut. After this, the leaves are further ‘shortlisted’ by hand and fermented in a specific way to create premium keemun teas. Keemun Maofeng tea is one of the most premium varieties out there. It is harvested in early spring and composed of only the purest unbroken leaf tips.
