Premium China Keemun

4 star average rating

Often called the Burgundy of China teas, this North China Congou is rich, flavorful and appropriate for any time of day. We offer this as our basic Keemun, although it is in the middle range of the standard series.

  • Good value

  • Good full taste, smooth and satisfying. Perhaps not nuanced as some have protested, but for the money can't be beat.
  • Looking for more complexity!

  • Not what I'm looking for in my love of Keeman. Looking for a bold/rich flavor that is layered with hints of wine, smoke and earthiness. Hoping the Keeman First Grade will fit the bill. So far other ones that have given me the flavors I'm looking for: Keeman Hoa-Ya B, favorite so far; Keeman Hong Cha; Then Keeman Xiang Lu to a lesser degree.
  • Not quite a classic Keemun

  • OK, this is decent and pleasant. Goes with or without milk. There is some sort of honey-like nuance that reminds me of other China congou teas I've tried from Upton. But to me the classic Keemun should have a Burgundy edge, maybe fruity - and this one doesn't have it. The better Keemuns have it, but alas, Upton is out of the Keemun First Grade.
  • Standard Keemun

  • I've been working through all the Keemun teas, trying to find which one I like best. This one is nearest in taste to type I've been accustomed to drinking. The "finer" Keemun teas usually have milder flavor, but I prefer bold Keemun.
