Description

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 and the tea is rolled into little curls that are quite shiny. Songluo Mountain is located between Quimen (aka Keemun) and the city of Huangshan in southern Anhui Province. They make sure the that the oxidation is slow and controlled, so that the lovely flavors develop over the hours. To get the shiny curls, high temperatures are required during the firing, yet they avoid any burnt or smoky flavors. 

Ingredients: Black tea.
