The origins of Keemun Tea are, compared with tea in its entirety, very recent. The history of this beverage begins in the Qimen County of the Anhui Province, China, during the 19th Century. According to records, Keemun Tea was invented by a man called Yu Ganchen, a former civil servant who'd lost his job.
Ashamed of his failure, Yu Ganchen took it upon himself to travel to the Fujian Province in a quest to uncover the secret of Black Tea production. His journey turned out to be a stupendous success, and Yu eventually returned to his home in Qimen County to establish three Black Tea factories.
Over the course of many years, Keemun Tea developed into the popular beverage it is today. Now, it is known and loved around the world and continues to grow with each passing year.
