  • Black Tea is known to banish fatigue, stimulate mental powers, and raise energy levels. It has been shown to reduce stress hormone levels and acts as a nerve sedative, frequently relieving headaches. Black tea contains a number of vitamins considered essential for maintaining health, including Carotene, a precursor to vitamin A, has antioxidant and protective properties, Vitamin B1 and Panothenic Acid, Vitamin C and Vitamin B6.

    Black Tea also contains antioxidants which may help to protect your body from the ravages of aging and environmental effects. Because they are allowed to ferment completely before drying, most black teas are especially rich in those polyphenols which have been shown to be effective against dementia in aging as well as AIDS related dementia. These compounds penetrate the blood brain barrier and have also been found to reduce blood cholesterol levels.

    Black tea is known for its antiviral and antibacterial properties. It can be topically applied to cuts, bruises and burns, and is famous for its sunburn relief and has been shown to have a positive effect on preventing tooth decay and gum disease.

    I was disappointed to have bought a 1/4 lb of a weak, tired, bland, tasteless Keemun yet again. I will need to spring for a higher grade in the future. I got what I paid for.—Rhianna
    Really delicious, essential tea. Sweet, smoky, exquisitely balanced, profoundly thirst-quenching, mellow as time. The mystery is there. What the mystery is, I have no idea, but I feel that I sit at the feet of the Buddha as I sip this. —Sophie
    A few years back, I was lucky enough to purchase some similarly-priced loose leaf keemun tea from World Market. I fell in love with keemun tea after trying that one out - it fully lived the desrpition here, possessing an indescribable layered flavor, with smoky, sweet, and fruity notes that would linger with you long after your cup of tea was finished. It was heaven! I was super-excited when I read the description and some of the reviews here, because I thought that I had found my tea once again. Not so much - this tea is okay, but I don't like it much more than a typical supermarket black tea. Doesn't have much of the layered and lingering flavor I had hoped for. Oh well, the search continues. Maybe I'll have to step up in price to a Keemun Mao Feng or Hao Ya. I must have gotten a pretty good deal at World Market!—David
    Tried this tea hot, and it was just ok. Then I cold brewed with peppermint leaves from my garden --Fantastic! I'll be keeping this on hand for iced tea all year long.—Susan
    This Keemun doesn't knock my socks off, but it certainly is a decent morning tea. It's very mild, good, drinkable morning brew.—Martina
    Nice tea .. rich, bold and smoky.—Hthorn
    Keemun is my go-to tea for starting my day. Smooth, and robust - never bitter. I add just a touch of honey, and I am a happy camper. Love it!—Deeanne
    Earthy and slightly smoky aroma for this medium-bodied black tea from China's Anhui province. A well-balanced tea that produces subtle notes of fruit and honey with its finish. —Robbie C.
    This is the perfect classic black tea. Reminds me of tea-time in England. Just a hint of orchid-like aroma. Very constant and balanced. Goes well with tea-time foods, both savoury and sweet. Doesn't need milk or sugar.—Sandra
    When i opened this tea, the first thing I noticed was the amazing bouquet. It held up through the steeping and through drinking the whole pot of tea. I'll be buying this again! —Elaine P.
