About this tea

Tea Story

Keemun is a corruption of this tea’s name of origin, the Qimen county in southwestern Anhui province. In 1875, a young entrepreneur began producing black tea in Qimen, a place that produced only average quality green tea. Since that time, Keemun has gained a reputation for a unique yet indescribable flavor, with hints of smoky pine, orchid, cooked apple and a rich, sweet finish.

Brewing Tips

Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Measure 1 spoonful (3g) of tea for each cup of water.
Bring the water to boil; steep tea for 5 minutes.
Strain leaves while pouring.

I love Peet's Keemun. I miss the lion mountain keemun, and pumphrey's blend. I worked in the Menlo park store for two years in the mid-1970's. I learned alot from M. Peet, not only about tea and coffee-but about world history.

As my favorite of the China black teas, Keemun Fancy stands alone in its uniqueness. Its smooth texture is completely balanced by a subtle taste of smokiness. The two complement each other perfectly making this tea a surprising enjoyment.
