China / Camellia sinensis
This Keemun is one tea we have consistently liked year after year, and for good reason: the subtle smoky character is balanced by the smallest hint of sweetness.
If you were to travel back in time a few hundred years, this tea would be sold pure as classic "English Breakfast," but in modern times it is blended with other teas from India to make some of the hundreds of recipes on the market.
This tea also is featured in our new Middle Eastern Tea Rub!
