Keemun Congou / Qimen Red Tea (Chinese Black Tea)

Winner of 1 star at Great Taste Awards 2017

Keemun is a black Chinese tea with a winy and fruity taste, designated as one of the 10 Famous Chinese Teas. Well-composed and elegant, our Keemun tea from Anhui has a sweetish, spicy note and a slightly tart flavour. A great pleasure, low in caffeine and tannins. First produced in the late 19th century, it quickly became popular in the West and is still used for a number of classic blends.

Kongou (same as kung fu) is Chinese for "skill" - same as in the Gongfu tea ceremony, and Keemun Kongou is most enjoyable if drunk in this style. 

 

Tea Type Temperature Steeping time
White & Green Tea 70-80 °C 1-3 minutes
Oolong, Black Tea & Pu Erh 85-100 °C 2-3 minutes
Herbs, Fruits & Spices 100 °C 5-10 minutes*

 

We recommend adding a splash of whole or semi-skimmed milk to our breakfast & flavoured black teas.  Use 1 heaped teaspoon of loose leaf tea per cup & 1g of matcha per 100ml.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
