The Qi Men Mao Feng tea, known outside China as Keemun, is one of the most valuable sorts of traditional Chinese red tea. Its history goes back a hundred years. Favorable natural conditions in which it grows and careful processing, guarantee very high quality of the tea. During processing young buds and fleshy leaves undergo withering, hand-rolling, fermentation and slow drying at a specified temperature. Qi Men Mao Feng is often referred to as the Emperor’s Drink, the Greatest of the Wonderful Selection. It is recognized all around the world for its exclusiveness: svelte elegance of its tightly curled pointed leaves, steely gloss of its dark surface and its succulent bright-red infusion. The drink combines a pure rich taste, a gorgeous lasting aftertaste, and a deep fragrance reminiscent of honey.
