KEEMUN TEA CONTAINS MY NAME 'KEE' SO IT IS MY FAVORIYE TEA!
GROWN EXCLUSIVELY IN KEEMUN (OR QIMEN) COUNTY IN ANHUI PROVINCE, THIS TEA CAME INTO EXISTENCE RELATIVELY RECENTLY IN 1875! THIS IS AMAZING AS THE CHINESE HAD BEEN DRINKING TEA FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS SINCE THE LEGENDARY EMPEROR SHENG WAS BOILING WATER AND A SPRIG FELL FROM A TREE INTO HIS POT AND A HEAVENLY FRAGARNCE ROSE! THESE WERE TEA LEAVES AS TEA IS A TREE WHICH CAN GROW TO 15 FEET OR HIGHER! MANY ASSUME TEA ARE BUSHES BUT THEY ARE KEPT LOW FOR EASY TEA LEAF PICKING!
In the 19th century, China exported green tea while black tea from India was very expensive so the Chinese wanted a slice of the cake so to speak and discovered the unusual topography of Keemun county was perfect for this particular tea. All Keemun varieties undergo a very slow withering and oxidisation process which give this tea a nuanced flavour and unique fragrance. Keemun tea leaves can be plucked only in spring and summer, nipping only the top bud with adjoining 2 leaves which is both laborious and costly. Even so, the leaves are hand sorted to select only the best buds.
The famous English Breakfast tea is said to be so popular as it contains Keemun leaves!
Despite its official name of 'Black Tea' the liquid is more reddish than black with a floral and slightly smoky flavour. Despite its price, Keemun tea is not that expensive after all as you can re-boil the leaves several times to extract maximum flavours.
As Keemun is a black tea, it does not contain as much antioxidants as white or green tea. However its other benefits include memory enhancement and extra energy as it can act as stimulant.
