Taking its name from the Qimen or “Keemun” region of China's Anhui Province, this rich and plummy style of tea was first produced when a former civil servant tried his hand at farming, deciding to go against traditional methods and create a new black tea instead of the typical green. The result was a uniquely refreshing and flavoursome tea, now one of the most popular varieties from China. Bold, rousing and fabulously fruity, why not try as an adventurous alternative to your usual breakfast brew?
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.
Fully oxidised for a rich, robust flavour, black tea is the most popular type of tea in the western world – and for good reason. Its full body and depth of flavour make many black teas ideal for drinking with a splash of milk, while more delicate varieties like Darjeeling express a huge range of complex characteristics.
