The origins of 'Western black tea'

Known as "red" tea in the Far- East, the provincial Qí'Mén Red is the signature tea in high quality classic blends, such as English Breakfast, Earl Grey & Russian Caravan. These teas were originally blended with lower quality leaf because pure authentic Qí'Mén is expensive and rare to obtain. This varietal has long been the tea of choice for the English and is considered in East Asia to be the finest of "black" teas and is in the list of top 10 most famous of Asia.
