Keemun Black Aster Tea


Keemun Black Aster tea has a claim to fame as being one of the first Chinese teas to be imported into Europe. It is gentle and light, with layers of flavour – both smoky and malty with a hint of nuttiness and responds well to a long brew.



Keemun Black Aster tea is famous for being one of the first Chinese teas to be imported into Europe! Once in Europe, it rapidly became popular amongst Victorian society. If that isn’t reason enough to have it in your kitchen cupboard ready to impress your guests, then we don’t know what is!

In addition to its reputation stated above, this tea is endowed with gentle and light qualities and boasts multiple layers of flavour. These include smoky and malty layers with an additional hint of nuttiness.

Keemun Black Aster Tea responds well to a significantly longer brew than what we usually recommend for our teas. Therefore, do not be at all scared to let this tea sit for up to four minutes. This lengthier brewing duration is required for the full flavour to be extracted from the leaves of this tea. The resulting hot beverage carries the complete expression of all the elements of the flavour profile for your taste buds to luxuriate in.

This tea also makes an ideal base for other teas. For example, we use Keemun back tea as a strong base for our strawberry tea and our rose congou tea.
