DESCRIPTION

This tea 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. Xian Luo means means “silky and fragrant” in Chinese. The initial oaky sweetness gives way to dark fruits, spiced rum, and medjool dates, followed by a slightly smoky aftertaste. Keemuns are often referred to as the “Burgundy of teas,” due to its unique flavors and dark red cup. Our tea improves 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 8 years.

GROWING REGION

Anhui, China: Province in southeastern China, known for producing black teas in the late 1800’s. A number of excellent green teas grow, as well as the black tea Keemun (sometimes spelled “qi men”).

BREWING SUGGESTIONS

We recommend an initial steeping time of 1-4 minutes, using near boiling water. After the first infusion, you might want to experiment with increased steeping times. We guarantee at least 3 (or more) subsequent infusions. You can anticipate a rich, ruby liquor, and 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.
