A winey, fruity tea wth depth and complexity. Takes milk well. Makes a bright and reddish brew. Packaged in a vapor proof triple layer bag. Product of China. Of all the China black teas available Keemun Panda #1 is probably one of the best known. Keemun is one of the congou-type teas; meaning it requires a great deal of gongfu, (disciplined skill) to make into fine taut strips without breaking the leaves. Interestingly the characters in the written Chinese script for time and labor are the same as those used for ‘gongfu’. It is often said that a properly produced Keemun such as Panda #1 is one of the finest teas in the world with a complex aromatic and penetrating character often compared to burgundy wines. Traditionally keemuns were used in English Breakfast tea. Keemun is one the best-keeping black teas. Fine specimens will keep for years if stored properly and take on a mellow winey character.

This tea is wonderful, we are on our 10th pound. We use it to make Ice Tea, the taste and color are second to none.it does not have a after taste or upset my stomach like other Ice Teas does. We will keep buying for years to come. To make the Tea we use a coffee maker with a 1/4 cup of tea, 1 cup sugar and full carafe of water, put in fridge to cool. Add ice before drinking and enjoy.
