This tea boasts a beautiful bright red tea soup with golden circles, with a wonderful Keemun essence flavor and aroma like flower, honey or fruit with a sweet and warm full bodied flavor.

As the old Chinese proverb says, "Keemun Black tea is like the most beautiful fragrant flower with the wonderful aroma and red brilliant tea soup".

Going from higher grades to common grades, the tea taste changes from fresh and sweet, to a move heavy and mellow flavor, and the aroma also changes from a rich flowery aroma to clear aroma.

Back in the 1800s Keemun black tea was exported to Britain, and started to appear in the British upper class, with a high status of elegance and known as the best tea among high class and royalty.
