Every step in the manufacture of this Organic Keemun Premium Black Tea is meticulously overseen - from the careful hand plucked selection of organic and Fair Trade Certified tea leaves, to the rolling and shaping, through the final oxidation and drying. This limited, small batch production offers a deep, rich and smooth black tea experience, with a beautifully-lingering aftertaste. The first taste makes it clear why keemun black tea is considered the "The Burgundy of Teas."

This loose leaf tea is grown and crafted by the Da Zhang Shan Tea Garden in Wuyuan County, a neighboring area to Qimen County, the birthplace of this famous style of Chinese black tea. We have been sourcing our standard grade Keemun from Da Zhang Shan for many years, and are delighted to procure this limited production tea that highlights their skill and mastery of premium teas.

This organic tea is our premium grade Keemun. For those looking for a standard grade Keemun, please try our Organic and Fair Trade Certified Keemun Black Tea.

Ingredients: organic and Fair Trade Certified Chinese black tea

Origin: Dazhangshan Tea Gardens, Jiangxi Province, China


Jiangxi Province, located in eastern China, is surrounded by mountains on three sides and sits comfortably in a subtropical climate, making it an excellent place for growing tea. Situated in Wuyuan County, the Da Zhang Shan Tea Garden maintains the region’s 1200-year reputation as the “golden triangle” of exceptional tea production. Certified organic in 1997, Da Zhang Shan was the first producer organization in China to gain Fair Trade certification in 2001. With over 5,400 member households, the Da Zhang Shan Tea Association has used their premiums to renovate 3 factories, establish a microcredit program, and build a school, among many other initiatives.

Steeping Instructions


At Arbor Teas, we believe tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. We’re happy to make recommendations to get you started, but don’t hesitate to experiment! When brewing your tea, your main considerations are tea quantity, water temperature, and steeping time. We recommend black teas to be steeped for 3 to 5 minutes in water heated to a full, rolling boil. For the best flavor, use fresh water whenever possible, and avoid overboiling. Try not to steep your tea longer than necessary, as you’ll extract undesirable bitterness from the leaves. If you want a stronger brew, don’t steep longer, just use more tea. And don’t forget to re-steep your tea leaves to get the most out of your leaf!

Health Benefits


Like all true tea, black tea offers many potential health benefits. Research has found that tea (Camellia sinensis) can have many positive effects on human health, including improved cardiovascular function, cancer risk reduction, improved immune function, improved oral health, and help with weight management. Tea is also full of polyphenols, which are a class of antioxidant that help your body maintain homeostasis and balance your stress levels. Black tea specifically has been found to regulate blood sugar in diabetics better than other types of tea, according to a study done by the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

    Premium Keemum

    Posted by gracin gurtler on 24th Feb 2023

    Hands down, the most delicious tea I have ever tasted. It's a little lighter than I normally love. But it is so smooth, that it's difficult to resist a second cup immediately after the first. It's what I'm going to reward myself with for exercising in the morning.

    Deep, Complex Tea

    Posted by Emily on 24th Jan 2023

    I tried this one out for the first time after my typical morning staples, Rwandan and Vietnam Nam Lahn, became unavailable for the foreseeable future. I prefer darker, full-bodied black teas above all other varieties. What really grabs me about this particular tea is the unusual undernotes, which certainly can be described as "wine-like". However, to my taste buds, this tea is more akin to a rich, pure dark cocoa - in fact, that is how I'd describe it: a sort of tea/hot cocoa mashup. I love it. This tea can sometimes pack quite a kick in the caffeine department and as someone else mentioned, be careful if you suffer from stomach issues as I do. Usually, I'm fine with it. It does very well on a second steep, too. This is definitely my new morning go-to!

    Pleasantly surprised

    Posted by AZ on 13th Nov 2021

    This Keemun tea was smooth with no bitterness or astringency to speak of. The infusion was a lovely deep reddish gold with an aroma of dried fruit and the typical Assam style black tea notes even though it's a Chinese black tea. The flavor is sweet and soft on the palate with hints of fruit and a touch of citrus. I don't drink alcohol so I can't comment on the comparison to wines in the description but I could see there being a grape like taste in there. My only issue is the acidity is pretty high in this tea so it's not as friendly on the stomach if you're prone to acid reflux.
