Keemun has a short – by Chinese standards – history that begun in 1875 in Qimen. An unsuccessful bureaucrat by the name of Yu Gancheng decided to quit working for the government and try his hand at tea making. Due to the great demand and high prices for black teas at the time, he travelled to Fujian to learn how to make black tea. Returning to Anhui he introduced black teas to the area, that up until then had just made green teas. Over the next decade or so, the process and tea continuously improved, culminating in 1883 with what is now known as Keemun black tea.
The amazing taste and aroma of this tea, combined with good marketing, combined to make this tea an instant hit, and was in huge demand overseas in England and the US. It won international prize in 1915 Panamanian world Expos.

You're reviewing: Organic Superfine Keemun Fragrant Black Tea
* Required Fields
A very nice tea I think. Chocolaty, round flavour and a delicate brown-red colour. I have tried the Superfine Keemun Mao Feng tea as well and seem to remember that I liked that even better, but for the price and for it beeing organic I would say it is not a bad alternative. If you remember to watch the steeping time and use the right temperature water it has very little bitterness also, which I like. If there where half start I'd give it 4,5 for taste and value of money.
This is what tea is all about. Smooth chocolaty flavor. Good with or without milk. My morning cuppa.
The dry leaves of this Keemun tea are small, slender and raven black with a dry scent, which is sweet and earthy; distinctly Keemun. The orange tinted cup has a pleasant taste of dried fruit, honey, cocoa and tobacco with each sip. There is no bitterness or astringency. This is a lovely Keemun which imparts a fragrant cup.
A mellow Keemun with sweet characteristics and a very nice, strong fragrance. It brews a pleasant cup, and although the fragrance leans towards the sweet side, the taste of the tea is somewhat more straightforward and not as complex as I expected. I think there is better value in the Superfine Keemun Mao Feng. It does not cost much more than this tea, but it is significantly more complex. The aftertaste on this Keemun Fragrant is not nearly as satisfying.
Extremely nice and flavorful tea. Tastes like a dark roasted chocolate. Although, at high temperatures the tea could taste very bitter but other than that i extremely enjoyed this tea.
Когда попробовала, очень обрадовалась. Нашла, всё что я люблю в чае, и приятный аромат и натуральный, яркий вкус.
The brewed tea has a delirious aroma of carmelized parsnips and taste of sweet yams. It is pleasant to drink as is or, made very strong, with milk.
A good keemun, second steep was very fragrant indeed. Dark chocolate taste. Nice.
I made it according to Teavivre’s parameters. 175F 3G 8 oz 2 min The cup is beautiful golden color and very aromatic . It’s chocolaty fruity and very smooth. i need to try it @ 195F. I think this tea would be perfect for some beginners into loose leaf or someone who is afraid of strong or smoky flavors
I really loved the Keemun Mao Feng from TeaVivre, so I was excited to try this one as well. The leaves are small and thin and jet black in color. Dry scent is sweet and very bready. I steeped a level teaspoon for 3 minutes at 200 degrees. Once infused, the tea smells like toast and honey! Yum. And the taste is very similar. It tastes just like a nice crisp toasted baguette with honey and perhaps a touch of butter smeared over the top. There are some raw grain notes here as well, perhaps oats, and just a touch of fruit preserves.
Reply: Organic Superfine Fragrant is the highest grade Keemun on our site. Premiun Hao Ya is also high quality tea. The tea leaves of Organic Superfine Keemun Fragrant is more complete than Hao Ya. Both of our Keemun teas taste smooth, fruity and floral flavor. And our Organic Superfine Keemun Fragrant has a special roasted sweet potatoes taste.
