Our 2012 Emperor's Aged Keemun starts with the highest grade of Keemun which we age in oak barrels to create a full bodied tea with a complex unsweetened toffee edge. This tea is an excellent choice for coffee converts, and many connoisseurs claim that, like wine, it improves with age. Known to be a favorite of Queen Elizabeth, aged Keemun is wonderful on its own or with a hint of milk.
