Keemun (colonial spelling is Qimen) is known in China as the "King of Red Teas".  This tea was the original English Breakfast tea since it was first introduced to the British in the 1870s.  It is known for the lustrous sheen on the dark black leaves created by essential oils that coat the leaf surface.

Keemun is produced from a Camellia sinensis sub-varietal believed to be the only one containing the essential oil called myrcenal which contributes to the unique taste and aroma of Keemun.  It is grown in the Anhui province.

One of China's Top Ten Famous Teas with a penetrating aroma and a rich Keemun taste.

  • Amount: 1 level teaspoon / 8 oz. serving
  • Water Temperature: 206-212 degree F

Unique flavour
This was my first time experiencing the famous Keemun. While I've decided it's not personally one of my top choices, I urge you to try it if you never have. It's smoky and a bit malty. I chose to add a bit of honey to counter that. Steeping seemed to be fairly quick so I backed off and allowed it 2 minutes at 210. The resteep was also very flavourful. Give it a try! If it's your cup of tea you may discover a new favourite in Keemun!

New Favorite Black Tea
This could easily become my go to tea! Keemun Mao Feng reminds me of the hot tea that is served at my favorite Cantonese restaurant. I brewed 2 tsp in 190 water for 5 minutes. I had a cup of tea that was a smokey sweet treat. My palate picked up a slight floral note, but my mom didn't pick that up so it might just be me. I intend to sip more as the cooler weather arrives.
