Black tea from central China, typically hand-rolled and fired.
Keemun
Keemun is a famous Chinese black tea that when brewed, appears red. First produced in late 19th century, it quickly became popular in the West and is still used for a number of classic blends. It is a light tea with characteristic stone fruit and slightly smoky notes in the aroma and a gentle, malty, non-astringent taste reminiscent of unsweetened cocoa. Top varieties have orchid-like fragrance and additional floral notes in the flavor.

The name Keemun literally means Qimen Red Tea.
