The people called him the "Emperor of the Red Teas," and officially it was ranked among the three most fragrant teas in the world along with Indian and Sri Lankan varieties. The aroma of this tea is so multifaceted and recognizable that it even received a special name - "Qi Men aroma". In the English market, the Qi Men is known as Keemun because of the incorrect transcription of the Chinese name. It is loved in Europe because of its bright and strong flavor, which is impossible to spoil neither with milk nor with sweets.
This variety is included in the "China's top 10 most famous teas" and is one of the few that Chinese manufacturers grow exclusively for export. Despite the fact that China is the birthplace of Qi Men tea, it can be considered a purely English variety. After all, it is produced exclusively for the British market, since the United Kingdom purchases this variety more than other countries. By the way, Keemun was a favorite drink of the legendary Queen Victoria, she made this tea popular.
