CHINESE KEEMUN OP TEA LEAVES
Keemun Op tea is produced in the southern Anhui Province, south-west of Shanghai. In the 19th century, a man from Fujian started to cultivate fine tasting black tea in the Anhui region bringing with him knowledge and expertise from his home district. He went against the local tradition of cultivating green tea to latch on to the demand from Europe. The tea quickly became popular worldwide and is considered one of the world’s best black teas. It’s a milder tasting black tea with a lovely soft finish.
