Be the best version of yourself with this alluring beverage. Aside from dropping a few extra pounds, Keemun Tea Orchid can also improve cardiovascular health and even enhance cognitive function; all this and more! So, what are you waiting for? There has never been a better time to enjoy Keemun Tea, so why not start as you mean to go on? Buy Keemun Tea Orchid Tea and never look back.

While this particular type of Keemun Tea is named in honour of the orchid flower, Keemun Teas as a whole owe their name to the Qimen County of the Anhui Province in China where they were first produced.

In fact, Keemun derives from an archaic English spelling of Qimen. Quite literally, everything you need to know is in the name! The Anhui Province of China is known for its mountainous regions covered in forests. Low temperatures, high humidity, and frequent fog are just three of the factors that make this tea so unique (and tasty!). Furthermore, Keemun Teas are known for the presence of the essential oil, myrcenal, which produces an exceptional sweetness.

Keemun Tea was invented in 1875 and, in many ways, is the product of failure. Yu Ganchen, the creator of this tea, had once been a civil servant before shamefully losing his job. In an attempt to reclaim his honour, Yu Ganchen explored the world of Black Tea production. To do this, he travelled to the Fujian Province and learned the tricks of the trade.

His journey was a great success and he eventually returned to his home in the Qimen County of the Anhui Province to establish three Black Tea factories of his own. The rest is history, albeit a very short history compared with tea in its entirety. But what Keemun Tea lacks in age it makes up in taste. Don't believe us? We'll let you be the judge just as soon as you've tried our very special Keemun Tea Orchid.

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: Enjoy this tea with milk, sugar, honey or lemon. Alternatively, serve as it is.

Tasting Notes: Keemun Tea Orchid offers a complex array of flavours. First, enjoy a sweet, smooth taste, then strong malty notes followed by a smoky finish. A warming, nourishing brew to the last drop.

Colour in Cup: Coppery-orange liquor, light in tone.

Health Benefits of Keemun Tea: As if things couldn’t get any better, Keemun Tea Orchid is also a remarkably nutritious beverage, particularly when consumed as part of a healthy and active lifestyle. If that doesn’t put a smile on your face, then perhaps the fact that Keemun Tea improves dental health will!

According to a Swedish-US collaborative study, the Polyphenolic compounds present in Black Tea can kill or suppress cavity-causing bacteria from either growing or producing acid. It can likewise affect the bacterial enzymes and prevent the formation of the sticky-like material that binds plaque to teeth. What more could you possibly want from your morning cup of tea?

    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. I really recommend this tea and commend the team for selling this at such a good price.

    Very good quality tea. Just the quality varies with respect from I bought (and truly loved) from the same seller around five months ago.

    A refreshing keemun, lighter than some. Needs a bit of time to brew to develop its flavour

    Unfortunately this time the quality of this excellent tea is not matching my previous experience from the same seller. It is either not the same quality or it was badly stored. Bit disastrous experience.

    This was my main reason for the purchase. I was looking for something similar for quite some time. Very happy then to find it.
