Description

Keemun is one of the newest yet most popular teas in the world. Better still, our Keemun Panda No. 1 Special Grade is very special indeed. We call this wonderful brew “No. 1” for a reason, and that reason is quality. This beverage is a high grown Black Tea from the Chinese province of Anhui.

The orthodox loose leaf is well manufactured with a neat needle-like appearance. Keemun Panda No. 1 Special Grade is bursting with character and also offers incredible health benefits when consumed as part of a healthy and active lifestyle.

Looking to make the most of your morning jog? Boost your metabolism with this all-around wonderful beverage. So, why not bring your morning cup to life with Keemun Panda No. 1 Special Grade Tea? Buy with The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company today and see what all the fuss is about!

The history of Tea in its entirety began in 2737 BCE. Keemun Tea, on the other hand, only came into existence in 1875, making it a relative “newcomer” to the industry. But what it lacks in age it makes up in taste. Nevertheless, while the history of Keemun Tea is unquestionably short, it is certainly an interesting tale all the same!

The success of Keemun Tea originated from failure, particularly the failure of a former Chinese civil servant called Yu Ganchen who lost his job and was forced to look for a new career. Following his humiliation, Ganchen travelled to the Fujian Province to uncover the secrets of Black Tea production.

His journey turned out to be a success, and eventually, he returned to his home in the Qimen County of the Anhui Province to establish three Black tea factories of his own. Ultimately, Ganchen’s endeavours were considered remarkable and revolutionary as prior to this return, the Anhui Province had been known only for the production of Green Tea.

The Qimen county is the home of Keemun Tea. In fact, the very name of this beverage derives from an archaic English spelling of Qimen. Keemun Tea is often grown in mountainous regions covered in forests which are prone to low temperatures, high humidity, and frequent fog. These unique conditions help to develop the distinctive flavours known and loved with all Keemun Teas.

Type of Tea: Loose Leaf Black Tea.

Origin: The Qimen County, Anhui Province, China.

Brewing Instructions: Brew using freshly boiled water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes.

How to Serve: Honey, Lemon, Sugar, Milk - the choice is yours!

Tasting Notes: Keemun Panda No.1 Special Grade carries strong, bold notes with smoky and woody undertones. Its flavours blend perfectly to create a truly hearty cup of tea.

Colour in Cup: Coppery liquor with orangey highlights, light in tone.

Benefits of Keemun: If taste alone isn’t enough, then consider Keemun Panda No. 1 Special Grade Tea for enhanced cognitive function. One particular study conducted at the University of Singapore and published in “The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition” saw 2,500 people aged 55 or over undergo cognitive function testing. When the experiment was repeated 2 years later, results established that those who had drunk two to three cups of Black tea a day during the 2-year period were 55% less likely to be subjected to any form of cognitive decline.

    Special in the name and more than special in its taste - this tea knocked my socks off... all of the Kent & Sussex Keemun Teas are very different but are all an absolute delight on the palate.

    This is my Keemun of choice from the range, having tried several (although not all).
    Still haven't found a Darjeeling that everyone in the family likes and at a modest price.

    Delicious, aromatic tea. Perhaps not the best grade Keemun, but suits my taste for a slightly stronger China black tea.
