Superior Bold-Leaf Formosa Keemun

5 star average rating
4 Reviews Write a Review
Formosa Keemun has a unique style that has attracted a dedicated following. This selection has the characteristic Oolong notes and gentle smokiness of this tea. It also has the lighter-colored leaf and infusion of our original Formosa Keemun from several years ago. Recommended for those seeking a divergence from traditional China Keemun.

  • One of my favorite Upton teas

  • It's outstanding. I could drink it every day and be a happy person. Takes well with a bit of honey or a combo of milk and sugar, or just straight up. Bold flavor and great mouth feel.
  • Excellent.

  • Best tea I've had in a while. To me, it comes across as just like a mainland Keemun, but more so--turned up to 11.

  • Light smoky flavor. Can take a spot of milk or plain. I prefer this milder smoky flavor than the heavier handed Lapsang Souchong. Very nice especially in the afternoon.
  • Very enjoyable

  • This tea is very much a change from Chinese Keemun. In fact, I do believe I like it better! It's smooth, has weight, and the keemun taste comes in the finish. Perfect drinking for those rainy mornings when the slight earthiness of the tea matches the earthiness the rain has brought to the air.
