Keemun Panda #1
Organic Black Tea
The famous tea that put China on the map. The Keemun style is flavorful and full bodied and became THE sought after tea by British tea drinkers prior to the development of the India tea plantations. This tea keeps well, developing a mellow even winey character overtime. Good by itself or blended with other teas.
Keemin is one of the congou style teas, and requires skill to make into fine taut strips without damaging the leaves. This style of tea was produced after 1875 to supply the English staple. It has a unique aroma, reminiscent of toast from a hot oven.
About This Tea
Complex with winey and fruity notes.
Bright tending reddish
Country of Origin
Takes milk very well.
Definitely in my top 5. It has an "earthy" quality (for lack of a better descriptive word) that makes it unique and that I really enjoy. Whistling Kettle stopped carrying this one in their store locations and I wish they would reconsider and carry it again. For now, though, I'm happy it's still available to buy online.
This is my go-to morning tea right now. It has a strong, rich flavor that pairs well with milk. It's good to drink by itself or with breakfast. If you're looking for something a bit more interesting than English or Irish breakfast tea, I would definitely recommend the Keemun Panda!
This rich tasting tea is a pleasure that I indulge in every morning!
I love this tea! It is deep, strong, and its not so overpowering you can't have it with a meal. This is what I consider the epitome of an everyday tea.
