Freshes tea ever!
I am a repeat customer of Golden Moon Tea. Each bag is super fresh! I also appreciate the air tight bag the tea is shipped in. I mix the Keemun with Lap-song Souchong to make a Russian caravan tea. Golden Moon NEVER disappoints!

Another great tasting tea
I have been addicted to the Earl Grey tea for many years, but decided to try something new. I really like the taste of the Keemun- another perfect tea
I also used it for Kombucha- and it makes an amazing brew
Jolanta Tombarkiewicz said:
Indeed the best of teas, best by itself and with spices.
Reach flavor and potency. thank you

Bright amber goodness
Once you try this beautifully bright amber tea you’ll be hooked. Such a smooth slightly sweet flavor with a pleasant aftertaste and a great price for such quality!
Susan Woodring said:
Perfect for iced tea
I like that there are no additives or anything artificial with Golden Moon teas. My favorite way to have this tea is steeped with spearmint or peppermint leaves from my garden.
This is the one tea that actually needs real sugar along with milk to really get the full flavor that makes this one a favorite. I usually use sucralose to sweeten my teas, but it makes this one taste "off", so this is my treat I allow myself. The flavor profile only comes through for me with actual sugar, so I can taste the chocolate & apricots in the background. A lovely cup of tea to satisfy a sweet craving!

The ad copy got me to expect something else. It's not particularly complex at all, but what's there is perfectly pleasant. The body is a sweet, slightly earthy mellow flavor, with a couple of deeper notes along the sides of the tongue.
Perfectly happy to have it and to own it, but I'm still looking for that cocoa/stone fruit pit combo.
Laura Martin said:
The best black tea ever
Very mild and pretty much impossible to over brew. Never bitter. Delicious taste. Great hot or as an iced tea. You will not be disappointed with this or any of the Golden Moon teas. Top Quality from the tea, to packaging to shipping.

Keemun tea has been a very long time favorite tea
The Keemun tea from Golden Moon lived up to the good standards of tea. It is especially good to learn there are no pesticides, plastics or any other toxic ingredients in the tea.
Perfect wake up pot of tea
So delicious — I drink it with oat milk every morning.

My Cup of Tea
This is my go to cup of tea. I love the full flavor. It handles milk and a little sugar well.
Brenda S. said:
My new favorite black tea
I added a sample of this tea to my order after reading of hints of cocoa. I had not heard of keemun tea before. I love this tea. It is my new favorite black tea. I will be ordering this again.
Jonathan Holz said:
I never knew how great tea could be until I started ordering from this company. It is amazing, and this tea is great to start the day.
Ernie Durham said:
I love the smooth and rich taste of Keemun tea. The hints of cocoa make this tea a favorite of mine since I love dark chocolate!
I have never been disappointed in any of my Golden Moon purchases, and Keemum is no exception. I can definitely taste the subtle flavor of cocoa! I think I have found a new favorite!
Deborah Hicks said:
Keemum is a smooth and bright tea. Very pleasant!
S Swarup said:
Keemun is a keeper
I drink about three cups of Keemun every morning. Smooth with a hint of sweetness. I steep it for just thirty seconds in a mug, and it's perfect!
S. T. King said:
We have been enjoying Golden Moon teas for several years and usually keep Keemun, Tippy Earl Grey, Darjeeling and French Breakfast in our pantry - yes we drink tea daily and love all these plus the other Golden Moon teas we have tried!
Kris G said:
This is probably one of the best priced teas here. Shhhh.....maybe underpriced but don't tell GM.
We drink Madagascar Vanilla and Lapsang Souchong so I was afraid this would be a bit weak and uninspiring. I find myself using this tea as much as the others (puh er and golden monky is in our stash, too). No wonder QE2 likes it. Everyone I have served this to loves it. It is my afternoon go to tea. A nice calming pick me up. Allowing time to take a deep breath and reflect and finish out the day.
Nigel Tangredi said:
This tea like all that I have purchased here is amazing. My wife wanted some high quality Chinese tea. I remembered Golden Moon from gift giving a few years ago.
My wife is so happy with this tea either on its own or brewed very strong and enjoyed with oat milk. We are defiantly ordering more often.. can’t believe I ever stopped.
Couldn’t be happier!
Jinmo Li said:
Best black tea of all times!
Lovely, mellow, and soothing. Perfect tea to go with that book you have been meaning to read.
Janet Sellers said:
Toasty smooth Keemun
As a former Coffee & Tea trainer I've been enjoying Keemun for many years...it's an excellent Winter time tea and I add it to my Chai blend for extra smoothness.
Deborah Gillespie said:
I have recently purchased several of the "sample size" pouches of Golden Moon Teas to try the different varieties. I found the Keenum tea very good. It makes a great afternoon pick-me-up tea break. It's another winner of the samples I'm trying.
this has become my breakfast tea i have 2 cups to start the day ,i love the hint of smoke in this tea its just subtle enough to make you crave more in the next sip .i love this tea
Adam P said:
This is a great breakfast tea. I generally have coffee in the morning, but with this black tea I don't feel I'm missing much. Very well balanced flavor. I ordered a small packet originally and liked it so much I came back for the tin this time.
Carole Cassio said:
wonderful full flavor tea
We recently re ordered Keemun tea; which my husband particularly likes. It is full flavored and a nice variety to add to our Tippy Earl Grey and Sinharaja.
This is our second purchase of this tea. We really like it and enjoy it throughout the day.
Also, we appreciate that our orders are always promptly processed and delivered.
Thanks for wonderful teas and great service.
JASON REED said:
Keemun is my go to morning tea. I previously bought this and loved it. When I ran out, I bought somewhere else and was disappointed. That keemun must have been old because I had to steep it longer and higher temp to get anything out of it. Came back to Golden Moon and have a nice smooth brew again.
Another favorite from Golden Moon!
I tried this tea on a whim and I’m so happy with it. Perfect any time of day!
I have really enjoyed this tea! It was delivered promptly, reasonably priced & great tea!
Kerry Vistisen said:
I like to have a variety of teas on hand to choose from. This was the first time I tried the Keemun and I made a good choice. It is has a nice smooth flavor. I usually drink my tea hot, but I'll bet this would make a good iced tea.
This is a wonderful tea. I enjoy it throughout the day. I highly recommend this specific tea, and even more so, Golden Moon. It is all first-rate.
Near-Perfect Black Tea!
Keemun is my second-favorite black tea from Golden Moon, topped only by Sinharaja. It's dark, earthy, and doesn't get too bitter if you oversteep it.
Pauline Batdorf said:
I just recently started drinking tea. Someone gave me a small sample of Keemun to try and it quickly became a favorite. The flavor of this Keemun from Golden Moon is truly delicious and I love it hot or iced!! The fact that it is organic is very important to me, I don’t drink any tea unless it is organic after learning of all the pesticides and other toxins that can be in tea. Thank you so much for this great organic tea!
Amy Crook said:
An all-around lovely tea
I got the six-tea sampler expecting to like one thing and ended up in love with the Keemun. I wised up and got myself a whole pound of it this time around so that I can make strong, smooth iced tea all summer. It's got a lot of flavor and complexity without a lot of accompanying tannins, full body and beautiful clear color hot or iced. My current favorite black tea.
Ellen Grossman said:
Great flavor, great service
I love this tea! The flavor is full bodied and I like the amount of smokiness--definitely there, but not too much. I blend this tea with the Assam, which makes a lovely blend. I also was really pleased the easy ordering and with how quickly this order came.
My favorite black tea
Smooth and mellow great tasting black tea. I found my new favorite black tea to drink just plain like it is hot or cold no sweeteners needed.
Brianna S said:
Love this tea
I've searched high and low for a delicious keemun loose-leaf tea after the company I used to buy it from stopped carrying it. I drink this nearly every morning and I'm so glad it's organic and only contains pure ingredients.
Best Tea Ever!
I’ve been drinking tea for years. Came across this company recently & the rest is history. This will be my go to site for my tea. Thank you for The Best Tea on the planet.
I have really enjoyed every trees I have ordered from Golden Moon, and the Keemun tea is no different. I will definitely be ordering again!
Love this tea. It has a unique Frisch flavor from the French and Irish breakfasts, Darjeeling, and Sinjahara which are also our favorites. Good with cream or without. I brew 3 min so it doesn’t get bitter. SO GOOD!
Keemun & Tippy Earl Grey
We’ve been drinking a mixture of Tippy Earl Gray and Keemun for about three years now and it’s our favorite. We mix 4 parts Keemun with 2 parts Tippy Earl Gray to get smokey sweet tones from the Keemun combined with the unique Bergamot citrus in the Earl Gray. I highly recommend this mix. We get four steeps a day from this mix adding just a touch of organic raw sugar. The quality of the tea is excellent from Golden Moon Tea. We buy in bulk to save money.
Madeline Brand said:
MY NEW FAVORITE!
I have been ordering different teas from different companies and the Keemun from Golden Moon is by far my favorite! They call it "the burgundy wine of teas" & that is totally true. It has a deep, rich, and fresh taste that makes it perfect for anytime of the day! I definitely recommend this tea!
Mary Roy said:
Delicious Earthy Cup
The perfect black tea, great service and speedy delivery. Always fresh and robust.
RICK TIBBEN said:
Great Keemun taste but not has hearty as the one from my regular supplier
Shelley E said:
Mellow, delicious and my new fave
I bought the Keemum tea to try with my usual Golden Monkey auto-ship. I didn't expect to prefer it to Golden Monkey, which has been my go-to for years. I have to brew it longer than other black tea to get the strength I like. The taste is delightful and I use half the amount of honey or agave I use with other black tea. My tarste buds are delighted.
A great tea
I'm a super fan of black tea and when I found out this was the Queen's preference I thought -welp might as well try it! I've had the French Breakfast and I think between the two - this is the "gentler" version.
I enjoyed it and it doesn't feel like it overly speeds me up. Great tea.
Love it alone or blended with other black tea
This is part of my morning routine at work. I steep a pot of this mixed with the golden monkey tea. I also love it on its own, rich, mellow, with zero bitterness or bite. I share with co-workers and resteep again and again, adding additional 1/2 - 1 tsp in the second or third pot.
This is also one of those teas that you can put the leaves loose in the pot, pour hot water in and just strain it as you pour your cup. Keep the leaves in the water to enjoy a cup later to reheat (or add more hot water to pot). This tea does not get bitter.
This is one I have on my subscriber list. :-)
E Miner said:
I had never had this kind of tea before so ordered a sample pack to give it a try. I was pleased to find it really flavorful without being too strong. I liked the smoothness and the little hint of cocoa. I'll definitely be getting a larger amount with my next order.
A very nice tea.
Really smooth. It might be my favorite black tea now.
Love Keemun tea
I liked this tea enough to gift it for a Christmas present to a loved one. Very mild but very flavorful cup.
Debbie R said:
My local tea shop no longer carries Keemun. I tried another company and the flavor wasn't there. My tea arrived quickly and as soon as I received it I started my water. Golden Moon didn't disappoint at all. The flavor is fantastic and a great black tea. I am in the process of ordering more as I know my 8 oz won't take long to be brewed and consumed! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for carrying the best Kermun!
Rick Goudy said:
Excellent tea quality and value
As I expected from previous experience with Golden Moon, the Keemun tea I recently received was top notch quality and the pricing was equally good. I don't need to shop around for tea and brewing equipment any more since I can depend on Golden Moon for the best of both. Shipping is unexpectedly fast, too, so I'm not waiting and wondering when my orders will arrive.
I love this tea. It is smooth, though still rich, and no tannic, acidity taste. I'm working on a pot of it now. And I don't have to add cream to this one as I usually do with black teas. Originally I bought a 1 oz pack to try and had to come back for the large bag. I bought several of the 1 oz packs to give as stocking stuffers this year so I can introduce family to Golden Moon.
Josh Larke said:
One of the things I absolutely love about this tea is the fruit-nuanced finish. This Keemun has such a wonderful bouquet. It’s so amazing how complex the flavor can be from something so unassuming as dried leaves. Highly recommend. Golden Moon Tea is simply the best.
I’ve been buying loose leaf tea from Golden Moon for over 2 years after leaving behind the pricey Teavana. My favorite tea is Keemun mixed with Tippy Earl Grey. I highly recommend Golden Moon and this excellent black tea.
The description of this tea sounded amazing, but the taste was just so blah. It definitely isn't "rich," as described. I thought at first I had not used enough tea for the larger-than-usual cup I was using. Then I tried again with DOUBLE the amount of tea. I still found it lacking in flavor. It brews up rather pale in color, too, despite how much tea I use. There are some tasty flavors going on, but they are just so light it isn't worth it to me. The French Breakfast and Golden Monkey teas are much more to my liking.

Lovely Keemun tea
I am very glad to find clean tea! I tried their Keemun and really enjoy it, the taste is distinct and smooth. This is another Golden Moon Tea that is now a favorite in my home
C. Lopez said:
The Perfect Black Tea
If I could only drink one tea in my life, this would be the one. Smooth, bright and not astringent or bitter.
Richard Le Vine said:
This Keemun joins your French Breakfast & Sinharaja as one of my favorite teas
Annie A said:
I was in the mood to try a new tea (i'm typically a Tipsy Earl Grey devotee) and ordered this on the strength of other reviews and they were right. This has a rich flavor and holds up well to milk and agave syrup. Excellent tea, I highly recommend it.
Richard Snelson said:
A Great Tea
This tea has a great flavor. I love it's rich taste.
This is one of our favorite go to black teas and golden moon has delivered a good, quality tea. Recommend it!
Jennie Montano said:
My husband and I may not agree on what meal this goes best with (he says Asian food - lunch or dinner) and I liked it for breakfast. However, we both enjoyed the flavor.
Will Handy said:
Sorry to say, this tea is entirely forgettable. I'm fond of keemun and was excited to get an organic version. But this has almost no taste. Big, beautiful leaves - it looks very impressive and well-made. But on the crucial metric - flavor - it's a crashing disappointment. I made it in my usual way - well-filtered boiling water, heaping teaspoon of leaves for a standard mug, a 4-minute steep. Bland, nothing characteristic, actually kind of hard to find a tea taste at all.
Smooth morning cuppa.
Very nice clean flavored morning tea. I like it with lemon and a four minute steep.
Tastes fine, but very weak
I'm with Barb. I have never had a black tea as weak as this one. I guess it's supposed to be like that. It is very easy to drink, and would probably be better enjoyed with food, like the French Breakfast. Definitely steep it for the full amount of time. I usually can steep the same black tea in my cup 2-3 times. With this one, just once. It tastes just fine though, and I will finish my ounce bag before buying a different kind.
Sean L. said:
Smooth and delicate
Keemun in general is my favorite type of black tea and the folks at Golden Moon Tea have the best that I have ever tried. If I have a friend who is interested in black tea I always buy them a sampler Keemun from Golden Moon Tea! Keep up the good work!
Tamara Blustein said:
Love this tea. I brew it for about 7 minutes and add a bit of sugar and milk. Golden Moon has the best teas.
Amy Crook said:
strong, rich flavor
I got the Black Tea Sampler and the Keemun stood out enough that, after making a pot for myself and a friend, we both went back to order a tin. A really strong, full-flavored tea that stands up very well to my sugar and cream habits.
Aleilah Lawson said:
Happy Tea Drinker
I'm always on the look out for a good, strong morning tea. Golden Moon's Keemun fits the bill. I find it richly flavored with abundant subtle nuances that delight my taste buds. Time to order more!
My husband is an avid tea drinker and Keemun has always been his favorite so I ordered him a pound from Golden Moon for Christmas. This morning as we sat down to breakfast, I commented on how pale his tea was. He said it was the Keemun I'd bought him! He said it is as if it had been brewed before and dried out to be used again! I'd bought him some from you last year and I asked if it had been the same. He said it was, and that he hadn't wanted to say anything, just mixed it with stronger teas to use it up! How disappointing. I wish he's spoken up before. I wouldn't have wasted my money!
Rebecca Monroe said:
This was exactly the present I needed to give myself this year. Straight ahead, glorious and perfect tea.
Josi Ward said:
I have a new favorite tea -- discovered based on how much I trust almost anything that Golden moon recommends!
Lynne Nabors said:
The Keemun tea is an ideal breakfast tea for me. I like a strong black tea, and this fills the bill for me. I buy it by the pound, and enjoy it every morning!
