Default qi-men red tea vs keemun...

hey guys... after tasting the qi-men 'red tea'.... its similar to
keemun
, and seeing how it sounds like keemun... is it the same thing as
keemun?
in the chinese store i went to (wing hop fung/LA) they had them both...
so i assumed they're different... oh,,i see another post here saying
theyre the same...

Here's yet another: They're the same.

For people who love Chinese tea but don't speak the language, the
vagaries of transliteration are one the most frustrating things in life.

It's crazy that WHF should have the same type of tea labelled
confusingly different. "Oh, if you love pu-erh, then you should get
