Keemun Fragrant Snail Black Tea

No reviews

Keemun black tea is one of the world’s four most famous black teas, well-known for its signature Keemun fragrance. Keemun has been the key component in the traditional English Breakfast black tea blends, even though the quantities used in this blend are limited due to the high cost of Keemun tea. 

This tea comes from the traditional core producing areas of Likou with elevation of about 800 meters. Fragrant snail is the new type of Keemun black tea that has become popular in recent years in China. Made of only one bud and one or two leaves, this new Keemun tea is less processed than traditional gongfu tea, but with more buds and young leaves. It tastes smoother and mellower than the typical traditional Keemun gongfu black.

As can be seen from the pictures above (taken on Victoria’s recent tea trip to Qimen county, Anhui province), you can see that a lot of wild flowers and trees grow among the tea bushes, which is the typical ecological environment for the core producing areas of Qimen, which lies at an elevation of about 800 meters. Qimen is the Mandarin pronunciation of Keemun.
