Description

Our Blooming Keemun Peony Flowering Tea is an especially luxuriant premium Chinese blooming tea. It has a rich, smooth flavour combined with mellow sensations and a beautiful display of colour to offer an incomparable source of relaxation during the day.

Unlike most other black teas, Keemun Peony Tea is made from young leaf buds. These are carefully picked in spring, with only the top two or three leaves cultivated in each harvest. These are then refined by hand and fermented so their colour changes from a natural green colour to the dark brown form in which they reach your tea pot.

Another reason why our Blooming Keemun Peony Flowering Tea is special is because it is produced only in the Qimen county close to Huangshan city in the Anhui province. Only tea leaves harvested in this area can claim to be authentic Blooming Keemun Peony Flowering Tea leaves. It’s always a good idea to check this when buying Keemun tea so you don’t fall prey to a poor imitation.

What also makes our Blooming Keemun Peony Flowering Tea more special than conventional Keemum tea is the beautiful display created when steep in a glass with near boiling water. The tea leaves unfurl to release small rosettes hand tied to each leaf. This creates a beautiful display of colour and texture, and we highly recommend steeping in a glass tea pot to enjoy the display.

Whether supping on a cup when relaxing alone or sharing the delights with friends, you’ll be delighted to discover that our Blooming Keemun Peony Flowering Tea has a rich, smooth taste and mellow aroma. What’s more, it will last through several infusion. This will be highly welcome news because we can promise you that one cup of this luxuriant Chinese black tea is never enough.

BREWING INSTRUCTION:

 

THE WATER TEMPERATURE

  • The golden rule about water temperature is never use boiling water on the tea, whatever kind of tea you are making.
  • Green Teas require water at 70°C and black teas require water at 85-90°C.
  • These days you can get kettles which enable you to choose your water temperature.

 

THE AMOUNT OF TEA

  • Custom dictates that 4 grams are sufficient for one cup. But the amount is partly a matter of preference.
  • In the case of Assam tea, which is naturally very robust, you might want to reduce the strength and brew 3 grams instead of 4.

 

THE BREWING TIME

  • This is a very important step in the art of tea-making. In fact, the brewing time varies depending on the type of tea. An over-brewed black tea will develop a bitter taste whilst an under-brewed white tea will be flat and insipid.
  • Black teas are normally brewed for 2-3 minutes, green teas for 3 – 4 minutes. It is a good idea to check the brewing time before making the tea, because some teas need to be infused for very specific times: for example, Jade Pearl is left to infuse for 7 – 20 minutes, whilst Oolong tea will need 5 – 7 minutes for its bouquet to develop fully.
  • Brewing is normally done with a lid on, so that the tea retains all its aromas.
