Tea Type: Black
Region: Qimen County, Anhui Province
Keemun is named after Qimen County in Annhui province, China where it has been produced since 1875.
Historically used in British tea blends, this particular high grade leaf is a stand-alone classic which can be savoured all day long.
This Keemun has a gently malty taste, with hints of orange peel, dark cacao and dried fruit.
For best results, brew in a pot. Like the #003 Mogan, don’t over steep; no need for milk or sugar, just brew and enjoy.
Best time to drink
This is great first thing in the morning to get your day off to a perfect start.
Loose-leaf tea has 3 main enemies: 1) Heat 2) Light and 3) Moisture. Exposure to any of these will degrade the quality of the loose-leaf and lead to stale tea which is to be avoided at all costs. Once you have opened your pouch and made your tea, squeeze out all the air and wrap it up tightly (all Tea & Glory pouches are re-sealable). Once you have done that, store it in the original box or an airtight container and away from light and any strong smells. Tea is hygroscopic, which means that it absorbs moisture and any smells from the surrounding environment. Unless the tea is specially vacuum-packed, do not store in the refrigerator, as this will create moisture inside the packet everytime the tea is removed. Just store in a cool, dark cupboard away from direct light and you will be fine. If you have any questions or are not sure of anything just drop us a line at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
