Keemun Curls | 祁紅香螺

 Tasting notes: Malty, red date, walnuts
 Origin: Qimen, Anhui, China
 Cultivar: 祁門櫧葉種 Qimen Zhu Ye Zhong
 Elevation: 1200m
 Oxidation: ⦿⦿⦿⦿⦿
 Medium roasted

Using only small, delicate leaves harvested in spring, this premium black tea is hand-rolled over a charcoal fire for a nutty flavour.

Why we love it:

  • It's the highest grade of black tea from the Qimen mountains of Anhui, China, made of small leaves for a smoother texture. 
  • It's one of China's top ten teas (the only black tea to make it on that list), loved for its rich, chocolatey flavour. 
  • It's hand-rolled over a charcoal fire, giving it a robust flavour with undertones of longan and red date, and the nutty aroma of walnuts.
  • It's harvested in spring as one delicate bud and one small leaf, and goes through laborious processing to achieve the coveted aromatic notes.
  • This cultivar is known to contain a unique essential oil prized for its calming effects.

While black tea is often brewed with boiling water, we find that the fruity notes and nuanced flavours of Keemun black tea are enhanced with slightly cooler temperatures.

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
