An excelletn Keemun
This is nutty rather than smokey. Makes a lovely dark cup if you make it strong (as I prefer). You can let it steep without it becoming bitter. Lovely clean taste. Highly recommend.

Versatile stalwart
This is my everyday tea. It's especially good for making sun tea and is a must to take camping.Very flavorful with no bitterness, it comes through an occasional distracted brewing with no ill effects.

This is a very nice strong black tea. It reminds me a lot of Russian caravan tea. I like to drink this tea when I have dark chocolate.

Quality tea
Enjoying Tea provides great service for quality teas at a reasonable price. Keemun is my daily breakfast tea. Hard to describe its slightly winey flavor.

Keemum is strong and rich
Very good but gets strong fast so be careful to pull the strainer out after a few minutes

Excellent Morning Tea
This tea is great for drinking in the morning. The smokey quality was a little odd at first because I've never had a tea with that sort of flavor but I got used to it and ended up finding the smokiness very pleasant. Great tea.

Loyal Keemun fan.
After sampling many varieties of teas here, as many as 10 I think, I settled on Keemun about 2 years ago. It is now the only tea I drink, and probably two pots per day. Solid, deep (I drink it black), smooth, this greets me as I rise, and helps end my evening dinner. While I also enjoy the Puer served at the local Hunan restaurant when I eat out, it is always Keemun I return to.

My Favorite
I've been drinking this tea from Enjoying Tea for more than two years, and it remains my favorite. Strong, full body, dark in color almost like black coffee, a pot of this tea is a great start to the day.

Essential Grocery Item
I am rating this as a regular grocery item, not as a luxury item. And as a thrice daily tea, this IS a five star tea.

Low fruitiness with lots of cocoa, spice, and mineral overtones. Great morning tea. Helps build Qi for a quick workout or bicycle commute. Great refresher in the afternoon too.

My experience with this tea may be different due to the way that I prepare it. Apparently lots of people fail to "rinse" their tea before they brew it. Making a highly tannic and over-rich brew is not the best way to enjoy black (Qihong) tea, in my opinion. I stir my Keemun freely in a pot of extremely hot water for 15 to 20 seconds and discard said liquid before brewing my beverage.

I drink a variety of teas, but this one is essential. No complaints whatsoever. Good leaves, sturdy packaging, well handled. I will order this again and again forever.

Thanks so much

I really enjoy this tea, but my girlfriend hates it. It's true that it's not like any tea I've had before and it has a really powerful flavor. I only recomment trying it if you enjoy flavors that are really outside the box.

Deep, Full-Bodied
This is my first tea of choice, the one I start every day with as the sun is just coming up. After sampling a variety of other teas, this is the one I settled on, and it's been my steady first of the day pots for a number of years now. With deep and full-bodied flavor, it is the heartiest of choices just as it is - - hot, almost as black as coffee in the cup, with just a drop of honey. A great start to the day.

Love Keemun
Keemun is my favorite, but I despaired of ever getting it at a reasonable price again after Teavana bought out my previous supplier and wanted $144/pound or $18 for two ounces. I love this tea.

I love black tea, but I have to pay attention to my stomach. The acid of tea gives me heartburn very often, but with Keemun I'm going save. Perfect for my breakfast and my afternoon tea.

Value-priced, decent tea
The pound of tea shipped promptly, arriving in a flat box that fit in my narrow mailbox. The leaves were denser than other teas at this low price. Thus I initially misjudged quantity for the first cup and made a discouragingly harsh brew. I unsacked the tea, stored it in a canister and gave it another chance. On opening the canister I gratefully inhaled that darkly fermented scent with hints of fruitiness that says, "Ah, keemun." As long as I carefully measure the amount of leaf to the amount of water, this tea is quite decent - especially for the price. I've had better but also much worse. Four stars for value.

The Queen of Tea
I am such a fan of Keemun tea that it has been my tea of choice for more than 20 years. I hunted high and low to find a Keemun similar to the tea I bought for years from the now defunct Special Teas and Enjoying Tea's Keemun Black tea was the closest tea on the market for a very competitive price. It is a full bodied China tea with the characteristic red wine color and the slightest hint of smokiness. Add a bit of milk and you have the perfect way to begin any day.

Different, but delicious
A very full bodied tea with a strong earthy, peaty flavor. Took a few pots to get used to the peatiness, but then I loved it because its so different from other Keemuns I have drank. Stands up to a second brewing and good with a blast of milk.

My favorite black tea.
I have loved many black teas over the years but this one is at the top of my list! A great after taste. Very smooth. Add a drop of cream if you wish, but it can stand alone without overpowering your taste buds. The bouquet is exquisite. I recommend this tea to anyone who loves classic black teas.
