SKU: tb0035 Category:


The fresh leaves for making this tea grew in the original producing area of Keemun tea, at an average elevation of 800 m above sea level. Imperial Keemun Black Tea is made only from spring tea, following the style of “one but, two leaves”; the processing time for this tea totals about nine hours and includes steps such as lightly sun-withering, rolling, fermentation, drying, and manual kneading.

These fresh first-plucking leaves for making with nutrients, and hence the dry finished leaves are neat and bold with a high percentage of tiny golden tips. This tea is fully fermented, bringing out a coppery-red liquid when brewed and revealing abundant golden buds in the leaves themselves. Overall, the first infusion of this tea is high in roasted sweet potato flavor mixed somewhat flower aroma, the second infusion is very mellow, and the third infusion‘s lingering sweet and fragrant aftertaste will give you more enjoyment.

    These teas are very nice, very fresh and you can divide the tins up to share if you want. Nice presentation, too.
