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.
