well, this is a ‘red’ tea, but it was with the blacks, and online found Qi Men as a region in China where they produce Keemun, so i temporarily put it here with the keemuns. >> apparently ‘keemun’ is the western translation of Qimen.

looseleaf $2.81/oz ($45/lb)

leaf is very thin, its very cute.

taste: strong full taste, stronger than the other keemun i had, similar taste, i think the woody/fermented taste is a bit more pronounced here, and its got a stronger bitter side than keemun, but the aftertaste is good, minty! .overall like it well.

keep? YES.
