Keemun Xiangluo|祁紅香螺

Tasting notes: Fruity, smoky, walnuts

Keemun Xianglou is the highest grade of black tea from the Qimen mountains of Anhui province, China. Hand-rolled over a charcoal fire to produce its curly shape, this rich black tea is malty and slightly smoky with the sweet undertones of longan and red date, and the nutty aroma of walnuts.

Traditionally used to blend English Breakfast teas, Keemun (祁門 Qimentea is often considered to be the representative of black teas in China. It is loved for its incredible aroma and its complex, chocolatey flavour. 

Keemun Xiangluo is harvested in spring as one delicate bud and one small leaf, and goes through intensely laborious processing to achieve the coveted flavour and aromatic notes.

The Zhu Ye Zhong cultivar used for Keemun Xiangluo contains a unique essential oil known for its calming effects that together with the tea’s innate caffeine and theanine, leaves you feeling clear-headed and calm.

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.
