Add to my notebook

Classic Chinese Black Tea from Qimen (Keemun) region, in Anhui province. One of the most popular black teas in China. Made mostly from mature leaves with little to no buds, this type of harvest is Anhui’s specialty (a similar pluck to the Lu An Gua Pian).

Slow withering and oxidation give this tea great complexity and character. Bold and full-bodied, it presents rich aromas of malt, cocoa, ripe fruit and a subtle floral touch. The epitome of Chinese Black Tea.
