Keemun Tea


A classic China black loose leaf tea. Full bodied, aromatic tea with a very slight smokiness to the cup. This can be a good morning tea for those that find the Indian teas a tad too strong.

Taste Notes : Lighter Mornings
Black Tea

Brewing :  Use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per cup and always use freshly boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste, depending on your preference for strength. Enjoy with or without milk.

Origin : China 
Ingredients : China black tea

Details : Keemun is one of the most famous of China's black teas, produced in the Qimen County of the Huangshan City, in Anhui province. The tea undergoes particularly slow withering and oxidation processes, yielding many layers of flavours. Lightly scented with a hint of nuttiness to the taste, it works equally well with or without milk.

Love Keemun tea. We blend it with Lapsang 2 x teaspoons of each in the pot. Awesome !

The best tea ever

I forgot to say how I discovered this fabulous tea!
The lovely team at Tugboat slipped a little sample packet into my order of Ceylon. I've never looked back, thank you Tugboat 😊

Great Tea

Great tea from Tugboat. Keemun is my favourite tea and I'm pleased to find that Tugboat stock it, as I like to support local Cornish companies.

One of us likes floral teas like Earl Grey and the other Assam types. Tugboat sent us a sample, with our previous order and it is a lovely ‘half way house’ for us both, so ordered some. We use it for guests and as a ‘breakfast’ tea. Well done Tugboat for a great recommendation.

Simply the best tea I’ve ever had

Having tried tugboat coffee the tea was a must.
I was not disappointed. The tea is whole leaf, as per the picture, smooth, and subtle. Particularly well suited to accompanying cake.
The service was also exemplary, with a hand written thank you note contained within the box, and of course the sample packet which I’m yet to try but am sure will also be a hit.
