Songluo Broken


Packaging Type

Mike found this tea in Las Vegas (known for its tea production) at the World Tea Expo. It is made near Keemun, so it shares many of the similar flavors. However, they handle the leaves a bit differently.  They make sure the that the oxidation is slow & controlled so that the lovely flavors develop over the hours. And when the tea is rolled, some of the tea leaves are broken and can not be sold as the more expensive Songluo curls. So their problem is your opportunity. It has many of the great flavors of its full-leaved tea, but with more body and for less money.

Songluo Mountain is located between Quimen (aka Keemun) and the city of Huangshan in southern Anhui Province.
