From Andao

Qimen black tea has been recognized as a prized Gong Fu tea for more than a century in China and has been enjoyed for years as a landmark traditional English breakfast tea in the West. Known for its bright ruby red liquor, full-bodied honey sweet infusion and smooth, lingering aftertaste, Qimen offers a flavor composition loved by both the East and West alike. This season we are offering a mid-grade variety Qimen from Anhui County, the home of genuine original Qimen black tea, which offers a fragrant and flavorful, full-bodied composition and a lovely, bright gold and orange infusion. This tea is wonderfully aromatic and presents a smooth floral and mild, cinnamon accented aftertaste.

Another Andao tea that I never opened before. I take it that Qimen is an alternative spelling for Keemun?

In the packet, the dry leaves are dark, curly and fine and smell like dark chocolate! Really rich dark chocolate.

The steeped tea doesn’t smell like chocolate, so much as baking bread with smoky pepper around the edges and a dark, sweet note, like molasses. Its a tawny red color, and quite gorgeous.

The tea is deep, full bodied, and malty, and it has a stout aspect to it, like a dark beer. It’s almost chewy in texture. As it cools, some chocolate comes out in the aroma and a-dare I say- coffee note, almost. Like a mocha note, which is fascinating. I think this is the first tea I’ve had that wasn’t flavored that reminded me of coffee, but without really tasting like coffee.

Quite an interesting tea with a lot of character. If this tea was a person, I’d want to invite it to dinner. It isn’t overly smoky for a Keemun, which is part of its charm. I must do some sleuthing to see whether I can determine if anyone else is selling it since Andao as a company is no more.
