Keemun Black - 100GM
Origin: South Huang Shan Mountains, Anhui Province, China
Characteristics: Hailing from a small town in Anhui, offering what is thought to be the most perfect of tea growing conditions, Qimen black tea is a beautiful refined tea. A very regular leaf appearance gives rise to the widespread use in blends and scented teas.
Tasting Notes: Although the dry leaf represents an almost black colour, the infusion represents shades of dark copper and red. The noticeable aromas of leather and cocoa, with occasional notes of wood and malt, trump a sweet powdery sensation.
Steeping Directions: Infuse in a Yixing teapot for 3-5 minutes at 85C.
