Keemun teas are harvested in Qimen County, China. Only the highest quality teas of the region are reserved for the Gongfu Tea Ceremony, and subsequently known in the west as “Keemun Congo” (Qimen Gongfu).
For our Keemun Congo, the flowering tips are harvested in spring and summer, withered in the sun, and lightly toasted. All teas reserved for the Gongfu Tea Ceremony are selected for taste and their ability to “satisfy the soul,” and Keemun Congo in particular is revered for its malty, slightly smoky flavor.
