Keemun Congo Black Tea$13.00 – $14.00
Keemun teas are harvested in Qimen County, China. Only the highest quality teas of the region are reserved for the Gongfu Tea Ceremony, and subsequently known in the west as “Keemun Congo” (Qimen Gongfu).
For our Keemun Congo, the flowering tips are harvested in spring and summer, withered in the sun, and lightly toasted. All teas reserved for the Gongfu Tea Ceremony are selected for taste and their ability to “satisfy the soul,” and Keemun Congo in particular is revered for its malty, slightly smoky flavor.
Oolong Tea$13.00 – $14.00
Oolong Tea, from the Chinese words for “Black Dragon,” is one of the rarest and costliest teas in the world. It is grown in mountainous areas, and treated with a labor-intensive, hand-crafted process.
Local Spicery’s Oolong tea, from the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian, China, is harvested in the late spring, sun-wilted, bruised, twisted into strands, partially oxidized, and air-dried and fired to obtain the traditional rich, smoky flavor that causes many people to place Oolong between the spectrum of green and black tea.
