An intense black tea with a natural sweetness that reminds one of caramel and brown sugar. There's also hints of tobacco and oak, which whiskey lovers will find surprisingly similar to their favourite liquor.

Our Keemun Black (or 'Qi Men Hong') is sourced straight from Qimen County in Anhui province of China. The dry tea appears intense black in colour and the small tea leaves are rolled gently in a curly shape. It's the perfect choice for those who love robust and naturally sweet black teas.

The quality of this Keemun tea is totally different from the 'export tea' that's generally available outside of China. Because Keemun Black is part of the English Breakfast blend, mostly low quality, mass-produced Keemun tea is exported from China. With the Teasenz Keemun black tea, you can now taste the original flavour of Qimen county, which is highly appreciated by tea enthusiasts in China.

Our design work is inspired by the artwork “Along the River During the Qingming Festival” by the Zhang Zeduan in the Song Dynasty. Instead of displaying the daily lives of people in the capital of China (as the original artwork), we display the tea making process of farmers through the same bird’s eye perspective.

When examining our packaging design in detail, tea enthusiasts will observe the tea making process, featuring tea farmers picking, drying, rolling, and frying tea leaves. The tea is then tasted in a pavilion and transported by horses along the ‘ancient tea road’.

Together, the traditional Chinese landscape and tea making theme, symbolise heritage, tradition, and respect for hard work of tea farmers.
