Keemun Traditional Supreme 2018
Qimen Hong Maofeng:
Keemun had once been the tea of choice for European elites before the politics of economics made colonial productions more popular. To bring the true quality of what used to crown Keemun with the laureate of the most desired black tea, we select only the finest first flush at the origin for our masters to process to the best of Keemun gongfu standard. Considering the advancement of techniques in the past 150 years, Tea Hong’s Keemun Traditional Supreme is very likely to be superior to what the kings and queens had in their cups.

Biscuity, warm aroma with hints of orange bloom over a chocolate undertone. Supple, rich infusion with accents of berries and prunes on a malty, slightly sweet oatmeal overtone. Low on astringency and bitterness. Sweet aftertaste.
Try to contain the first infusion duration to 5 minutes or less. Use tealeaves amount to adjust the desired strength. When using the gongfu approach, do not go less than 1 minute. Same idea in adjusting leaves to water ratio for taste preference. Between 100°C to 90°C, infusion temperature can change the taste profile.
