Keemun Mao Feng | Black Tea
Description: This rare China black tea is one of the more famous higher grades of Keemun tea. It is very aromatic, smooth, slightly sweet, and rich with a silky texture and cocoa notes in the flavor. It may not be as strong as some other Keemuns, but there is a complexity and richness to the aroma and flavor that make this tea special.
If you like your black tea with milk or sugar, DON'T BUY THIS TEA. Buy the Empire Keemun instead; milk or sugar would just cover all the special nuance of this tea.
All Keemun (sometimes spelled Qimen) tea comes from Anhui province, China. Keemun tea dates back to the mid-1800's and was produced following techniques that were used to produce Fujian black tea for centuries. The same small leaf cultivar used to produce the famous green tea Huangshan Mao Feng is also used to produce all Keemun tea.
