Among the best known of China’s black teas, these fine, dark leaves produce a deep amber cup, with a delicately sweet, earthy flavour and lingering cocoa finish. A rich, warming cup for any time of day, this takes milk well but is also wonderfully smooth without.

I tried most of the single black tea varieties in sample sizes and this was my favourite. It has a delicate but more complex flavour than the others.
The tea was a gift so I have not tasted it. The flavours are exotic and special. The packaging is simple but user friendly. The delivery was very timely. Overall would definitely recommend. I bought four different flavours.
I surely am addicted to this tea I have to admit. It's been more than two years this Keemun is one of essentials in my cupboard that I never completely run out. I did try couple of different suppliers and I did like them but none of them took the first place of G&P Keemun. I slightly adjusted the recommended recipe to my preference which is delicate black tea with no milk. I would suggest to play with it and discover the differences in brew with slight change of either amount of leaves or water. Careful with brewing time tho! Any extra second kills the experience.

We work hard to find, taste and select exceptional teas, first and foremost looking for quality and flavour in the cup. We focus on single-origin, whole leaf teas where the character is a direct reflection of the area in which it is grown, as well as the craft involved in growing, plucking and processing the leaves.
There are an infinite number of teas being produced every year, so our role is to find and bring you some of the best. Our care in curating the range, as well as the quality of the product itself, has earned us both our customers’ trust and multiple Great Taste awards.
Not only does the tea need to taste good, it is also important to us that we know exactly where each tea comes from and who is responsible for harvesting and crafting the leaves we buy.
We work exclusively with trusted farms, co-operatives, partners and suppliers who share our values. We source from 13 growing regions around the world, always paying well above fair-trade prices.
Sourcing and curating a collection of delicious, award-winning teas from around the world is only the beginning.
We then provide the knowledge and tools you need to help you bring out the best possible flavour in every cup when brewing at home.
As a team of passionate brewers, blenders, tasters, curators and, perhaps most importantly, drinkers of delicious tea, we get excited about helping you make a delicious cup of tea every time.
We are committed to reducing any environmental impact our packaging has before and after use. There is no perfect solution so we focus on continuous improvement, always looking to keep it as minimal and natural as possible without compromising on the quality of our product.
We are proud to say that our entire retail range is now both fully compostable and certified 100% plastic-free.
