How does Keemun Congou taste?

Black Keemun Congou tea has a special taste experience. The tea has a slightly smoky and sweet taste, with a subtle hint of chocolate and a floral note. The taste is refined and complex, with different layers that complement each other. It is a soft tea that does not taste bitter or sour, but has a pleasant aftertaste.

This exclusive tea is made from the finest tea leaves that are picked by hand. The fermentation process is crucial for the taste of the tea and is therefore carried out with the utmost care. This results in a tea of the highest quality, with an unparalleled taste.

Black Keemun Congou tea can be prepared in different ways. The tea can be drunk hot, but this tea is also very suitable as iced tea. The taste is preserved and does not become flatter when the tea cools down.

How strong is Keemun Congou?​

The strength of the Black Keemun Congou tea depends on the brewing time and the temperature of the water. It is recommended to boil the water to 90-95 degrees Celsius and let the tea steep for 3-4 minutes for optimal taste. If you let the tea steep briefly, the taste is subtle and soft. If you let the tea steep longer, the flavor will become more powerful and intense.

It is important not to let the tea steep for too long, as this can ruin the taste and make the tea bitter. Therefore, we recommend that you remove the tea from the water after the recommended 3-4 minutes and serve it.

Our exclusive Black Keemun Congou tea is very suitable for multiple uses. To do this, use the same tea leaves and increase the brewing time by 1-2 minutes at a time.

Black Keemun Congou Exclusive

Our exclusive Black Keemun Congou tea comes from Anhui province, located in the east of China, next to Shanghai. The region has a temperate climate, which provides ideal conditions for growing tea plants. Keemun tea is relatively young, it was only introduced in 1875.

The tea leaves that are hand-picked here undergo a very slow dyeing and oxidation process, resulting in a very nuanced aroma and taste. The leaves are then rolled up very tightly, which contributes to the distinctive taste of Keemun tea. The word 'Congou' indicates that the tea is made with great skill, which can be tasted in the unique taste experience of our Black Keemun Congou tea.

Another well-known black Chinese tea is the Golden Yunnan. The Black Keemun Congou tea differs from the Golden Yunnan tea in taste and aroma. While Golden Yunnan tea has a light, floral and honeyed taste, the Black Keemun Congou tea has a more refined, slightly smoky taste with subtle notes of chocolate and flowers. Both teas are traditionally produced and selected with the utmost care, but have a unique flavor profile that sets them apart.
