Altitude of Keemun?

Does anyone know what the approximate altitude of Keemun is? Or, if a number is not known, does anyone know its altitude in relation to Bai Hao Yinzhen? (higher/lower)

Hmmmm... If I remember right most Keemun are grown at about 1000 meters.

Keemun gets it's name from Qimen, Huangshan, Anhui, China. That elevation seems to match the topological data for the area.

Cheers,
Mike
