History

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.
