Xian Luo keemun: a silky, fragrant Mao Feng style tea

Xian Luo keemun is a smooth, rich black keemun from Anhui Province. The beautifully curly leaf has a slightly sweet, deeply floral aroma and in the cup the liquor is bronze in colour. This top-grade, Mao Feng style tea consists of the finest picking of small leaves. They yield a lovely deep, winey character with immense smoothness. Use one teaspoon per cup with freshly drawn and boiled water and infuse for five minutes. We recommend that Xian Luo is drunk without milk.

Tea from Grey's Teas

Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.

Sourcing our tea

Xian Luo keemun has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

Loose leaf Xian Luo keemun enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!
