About Qimen Needle

Qimen Needle (Keemun) is one of the most famous Chinese black teas, collectively grouped under the name "Qihong". Qimen, or Keemun, is most known to western tea drinkers as the base of English Breakfast.

Drinking Experience

Qimen Needle is an easy drinking tea, with a smooth, juicy mouthfeel. Despite that, Qimen Needle is a very rich tea. Even its relaxing aroma is full bodied!


When brewed properly, you'll notice that Qimen has a translucent red color. Although rich and thick, you should taste hints of sweetness, followed by a fresh aftertaste as you sip it.
