Keemun is a distinctive tea: deep yet not heavy and bright but not astringent. Notes of cocoa, toast, and sweet earth give way to a ripe, plum-like middle with hints of orchid and a twist of smoke.

Extra Info:

Despite its relatively short history (for a Chinese tea!) Keemun became known throughout the world by 1915 and in taste tests conducted by the leading tea companies of the day, was preferred over Darjeeling.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 212°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 4 minutes.

Ingredients:

  • Organic black tea

Origin:

Anhui, China

I normally love Keemun, but this one was not for me at all. There's a lot to like here--it's smooth and robust, and has a slightly peppery note at the end--but there's a strong smoky smell and flavor which, for me, overpowered the good parts. Would highly recommend this to anyone who likes smoky teas! But if you're like me and dislike that flavor, there are better Keemuns for you out there.

The Grand Keemun and New Vithanakande Ceylon are my favorite pure black teas from New Mexico Tea Company. The flavor of this Grand Keemun is absolutely amazing.

I like this basic black tea. Not expensive but for a simple morning cup of tea, it works. Second infusion is not bitter either. For gifts, start with this blend and a Darjeeling. You cannot go wrong.

I tried this tea last time I was in ALB and really liked it. This is my morning wake up tea. Great flavor hot or cold. Does't have the harsh taste that I find in super market teas if you steep them to long. Try it you will like it.

I love this tea and get it whenever I want to treat myself. It's pricey but really smooth and flavorful!

We were first introduced to this tea at the Albuquerque B&B where we stayed last Fall. The owner wryly called it New Mexico Breakfast and when we went to the Tea Company to buy some, the man who helped us knew immediately where we were staying. We're just finishing that package and I ordered another by mail. We rotate among several teas so as not to get tired of any. We enjoy this one very much.
