Keemun Imperial Anhui Province Organic Traditional Chinese Loose Leaf Black Tea


£5.00




  • Keemun is one of the most important teas in China.
  • It is grown in the Anhui Province in central China.
  • It was first produced in 1875, before then only green teas were produced in Anhui.
  • Specifically this tea comes from Qimen County, first established during 766 in the Tang Dynasty.
  • Qimen takes its name from Mount Qi and in turn gives its name to the Keemun tea.
  • This Orange Pekoe tea with its beautifully structured Camellia sinensis leaf makes for a mild, finely aromatic light drink that is shiny red-brown and having a spicily sweet bouquet and an interesting after taste.
  • This organic certified tea represents a growing trend towards food produce having a healthier provenance and although it is a little more expensive than our previous Keemun we feel the small difference in price is definitely worth it.
  • Keemun has quite a low caffeine content, apparently less than 10% caffeine compared to a cup of instant coffee.
  • I used slightly less than boiling water, 90oC and steeped for four minutes, if you have a liking for milk, then I would recommend perhaps steeping for five minutes and possibly using boiling water.
  • You will receive 75 grams of tea for £5.00 this will allow you to make 37 cups of tea. Two grams per cup, this tea can be re-infused making each cup of tea costing between thirteen pence and seven pence per cup
  • At Gently Stirred every order is gift wrapped so if you're buying for a number of different people just add that information at checkout
