Keemun is China's contender for the best breakfast tea, although this mellow example is fine for any time of the day. It has an orange-red colour and is delightful with or without milk. An excellent alternative breakfast tea can be made by blending Keemun with Assam.

Use 1 heaped teaspoon per cup and steep for 3 minutes in just boiled water.

    Perfect blended with Formosa Oolong.

    Posted by Jeremy on 14th Oct 2015

    I've been ordering Formosa Oolong and Keemun from The Teapot (formerly Aurora) for many years. I blend it approximately 70 parts Oolong to 30 parts Keemun by volume. I drink no other tea these days. For me it's the perfect blend - invites multiple infusions, even wet leaves left overnight in the pot are perfectly drinkable the next day - hot or cold depending on my mood ... often I'll top up yesterday's with fresh. Never contaminated with milk or sugar. And it laughs at hard water.

    Everyday tea

    A delicious everyday tea, meaning it is certainly good enough to drink every day,especially for breakfast. A lighter version of Yunnan.

    Aromatic tea with distinct lightly smoky Keemun character. Mellow light tea.

    I always try to make sure that I have keemun in the cupboard. This is possibly my favourite tea. I would recommend it.

    Pleasantly smoky

    Great for breakfast or add a little rum when coming in after the cold. Not a fan of adding milk.

    A gentle tea

    Though I drink it with milk and sugar, contrary to indications, this delightful tea has become my favourite nightcap.
