Winey Keemun Xiang Luo Black Tea
Keemun Xian Luo, a black tea from Anhui Province, China

A premium black tea from Anhui Province, China.

Keemun Xian Luo*:


Keemun Xian Luo (xian luo translates to "silky and fragrant") stands out as a jewel amongst other Keemuns currently being produced. This is the highest grade of Mao Feng style of Keemun, which features large, twisted, tippy, shiny leaves with a fine down typical of early spring buds. This particular Keemun is a choice selection because of the uniformity of the leaves, which creates harmony and a unique, balanced flavor. An initial oaky sweetness gives way to dark fruits, spiced rum, and medjool dates, followed by a slightly smoky aftertaste.

Keemun black tea is often referred to as the Burgundy of teas, due to its unique flavors and dark red cup. Keemuns improve in color and flavor after being aged for a few years, at which time they are known as “winey” Keemun. Our “winey” Keemun Xiang Luo has been carefully aged in our warehouse for over 5 years.

We recommend an initial steeping time of 1 - 4 minutes, using water just shy of boiling. After the first infusion, you might want to experiment with increased steeping times, but we guarantee at least 3 (or more) subsequent infusions. You can anticipate a rich, ruby liquor, and post-brewed leaves so uniform in color that they appear to be sculpted from milk chocolate.

This is the best Keeman I've ever had.  Waves of delightful tastes and fragrances surprise the palate.  Truly, I clear a space in my day, make an appointment with myself, for a tea like this.
