This Keemun Peony Black Tea is also well known as the Qimen Hong Mu Dan, Chinese Keemun peony red tea, first produced in late 90th century in Anhui, Fujian. This black peony gives a bright red nectar with a nutty character and a beautiful rich fruity lingering after taste. The dark rolled leaves will resemble the spectacular Chinese peony flowers blooming in bright sunrise when infused in hot water.

This brewing sensation captures the essence in its name, a classic Chinese peony black tea from Keemun. So mellow yet full bodied to the mouth, it’s complimentary for one who loves a pure fine black tea with abundance of smoothness and goodness.
