Very slight smokiness to the cup
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.
Brewing the best cup. One teaspoon per cup. Freshly boiling water, brew your tea for 4 minutes, a good rule of thumb is 3-5 minutes for most black teas (depending on your preference for strength) and enjoy with or without milk
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.

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.
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.
My order has been promptly fulfilled and the tea is great thank you.
This is particularly good leaf tea, nothing like the harsh stuff sold in supermarkets.
Having just tried some we were given as a present we've bought another 5 packets.
And we could not believe the amazing service, as the tea arrived ONE working day after we ordered it, exceptional!
Thank you Tugboat
