Keemun Mountain Buds 2019 No.637
silky elegant black tea
Keemun might be the most famous tea of Anhui province in China.
The leaves of the Keemun Mountain Buds were harvested in the most exclusive and highest place of Qimen region where the tea plants had been living wildly and abandoned for the last 20-30 years. The plucking is only possible during spring months because poisonous vipers are abundant there in summer making it impossible to reach the place. The early harvest results in precious fine buds, which is the reason for the elegance of the tea, and the wilderness in which these buds grow brings us close to nature. The woody and earthy notes are accompanied by sweet and acidic flavors, such as cocoa, rice cake, honeycomb toffee, apple vinegar, plums and dried mandarine peel.
The afertaste stays with us for a long time, the body of the tea is round, full and silky.
