Keemun Gong Fu

祁门功夫红茶

Bordered by the majestic Yellow Mountains to the south and the famous Yangzi River to the north, Qimen county boasts some of China's most iconic scenery and is revered for producing black teas of outstanding quality. The name Keemun Gong Fu refers to the meticulous process of hand-sorting the best leaves from the stems, as well as particularly slow stages of withering and oxidisation. The title of ‘gong fu’ (time and effort) is well earned, as the process enhances the characteristic flavour of this satisfying infusion.

    My go to tea

    This is probably the tea I reach for the most, both by itself as for blending.
    Very balanced, good combination of depth and balance. Fairly malty and just a hint of smoke.

    Makes a great base for a russian caravan with an oolong and with some yunnan you can get an extra sweet and malty brew.

    Don't know what it'd be like with milk, probably would handle it fine but my guess is it would kill much of the brightness

    Solid black tea

    Fantastic ... tried a lot of black teas from "luxury" brands to learn what my palette preferred ... this particular product really stood out from the crowd. Nice, complete flavor. Reminds me of my visits to Hong Kong. Sadly I live in the US, so I have to patiently wait for my shipments to arrive!
