Vicony Teas is the end-all/say-all to Keemun excellence. Heck, they were there at the drink’s inception. So, I think they have a heads-up on what’s good and what’s not. This is a new type of Keemun – only about ten years old – processed in a way similar to Bi Luo Chun (a famous green tea). And there are similarities. The flavor profile is creamy, sweet, smokey, woody, and a bunch o’ other things. I just can’t think of ‘em at the moment. It’s a very complex cup that only slightly deviates from the Keemun norm. I’m okay with that.
Keemun Aromatic Snail
The newest type of keemun black tea which was invented only ten years ago by combining the traditional production methods of keemun tea and that of Green Snail Spring (Pi Luo Chun, another famous tea listed among chinese top ten famous teas). Keemun Aromatic Snail Tea, made of only whole leaf buds of the first flush of tea harvested before Qing Ming (early April) is noted for a smoother and delicate flavor and typical Keemun Fragrance (祁门香）. It is the tea that would charm you once you had it.
