Keemun Concerto in bulk available for wholesale. Black tea from the Anhui province of China. Perhaps the most famous of Chinese varieties, prized for its rich, toasty flavor, mineral flinty notes and smoky, almost incense aroma. Our 'Keemun Concerto' is a hand-made, limited production 'Mao Feng' grade tea. It steeps a beautiful, fiery amber red, with a smoky aroma and earthy, smooth flavor. Clean finish and very mellow.
This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes.
A concerto is a piece of music structured in three pieces, one slower piece with two faster pieces on either side. While originally composed for vocalists in the 16th century, they have since become more famous as instrumental compositions thanks to the initial work of instrumental concerto pioneer Giuseppe Torelli and by later composers as varied as Vivaldi, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Ravel, Strauss, and Gershwin. Designed to highlight one or more soloists in a single instrument with a strong orchestral background to support them, you’ll find they’re not unlike a well-balanced, full-bodied cup of your favorite tea.

How long have you been growing tea and what got you started?
“I have worked in tea for 24 years. When I was 18 my family was very poor. We could not have the chance to buy tea to drink. My parents like teas. So I decided to work in tea.”
Can you describe a typical day out in the field?
“As I am poor I have to work hard to earn more money. So I work very hard from 6am in the morning till 6pm in the evening. Sometimes I like to work overnight so as to get more money. My main work is picking tea leaves in the mountain. It takes long time to finish plucking, as there are many mountains.”
What is your favorite part of growing tea?
“The happiest part is when I taste the keemun black tea after hard making. I can also let my parents to have the chance to drink a little bit. I am happy when seeing the smile from their faces.”
