Origin: Anhui Province, Quimen County, China
Description: This Keemun Superior is a quintessential, high-quality organic example of the Keemun teas typical from the region of Anhui. The soil conditions in the area are known to add a unique sweetness to the teas. This one steeps to an astringency that is tangible but smooth. A classic, dry black tea.
Tasting Notes: The steep of this Keemun begins with the mingled aromas of a fresh sourdough bread and tasting notes of bitter chocolate and cotton. The cup is smooth, with a gentle growing astringency that builds to a nearly sour, earthy citrus finish. As the tea sits, the smell of vanilla is perceptible.
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.
