China, Anhui Qimen
Once a producer of mediocre green tea, the local Qimen farmers’ decision to switch to the production of black tea was a wise one. Keemun tea is known for its breadth in quality, you can find everything from your every day teas to the quite transcendent here. Positioned in the steep rolling flats between the Yangtze River and the Yellow Mountains, the region is characterized by a microclimate of swirling low cloud, which creates a blanket of moisture over the region. The cool mountain air and abundant water from the mist and surrounding rivers help a create rich soil with a unique combination of nutrients, that nurtures the tea growth.
