Qi Men Gong Fu (short as Qihong), known outside China as Keemun, is one of the most valuable sorts of traditional Chinese red teas. The tea’s history goes back more than a century. Locations of the tea plantations are limited exclusively to favorable natural conditions. The leaves are usually picked in spring and summer. Only the young buds and two-three delicate leaves are used to produce this tea. Careful processing of raw leaves guarantees the tea’s very high quality. This sort is recognized all around the world for its graceful outward appearance, rich color and deep aroma reminiscent of the scent of orchid flowers. If one adds milk, the tea’s reddish infusion is complemented by the hues of milky opal, yet the drink keeps its characteristic fragrance and flavor.
