Description

Keemun Mao Feng Black Tea is one of the finest quality beverages to originate from the Chinese Anhui Province. Specifically, like all Keemun Teas, it comes from Qimen County. Unlike other Keemuns, however, its leaves are distinctly long and slightly twisted. When brewed, this high-grade Tea has a refined winey flavour with delicate fruity notes. It has become increasingly popular and is one of our best-selling China Black Teas. Indeed, there is nothing quite like it.

Furthermore, did you know that there are health benefits to be had from Keemun Mao Feng Black Tea? This is no longer a myth of herbalists but a fact of scientists. Research suggests that its antioxidants can enhance brain function. This may reduce the risk of experiencing the kind of cognitive decline attributed to dementia and Alzheimer's Disease.

However, this is but one of a multitude of health benefits. There are many more waiting to be discovered. Nevertheless, most people choose this Tea because, put simply, it tastes great. Whatever your reason for choosing this Tea, you've chosen well. Best of all, we pack Keemun Mao Feng Black Tea, like all of our Loose Teas, fresh to order.

Keemun Tea Facts:

Did you know that "Keemun" derives from an archaic English spelling of Qimen County?

Did you know it often grows alongside Huang Shan Mao Feng Green Tea?

Did you know that the high elevation, low temperatures and high humidity in Anhui contribute significantly to the unique taste of this beverage?

Did you know that it won awards for its taste throughout much of the 20th Century? And that now, during the 21st Century, it continues to be held in high regard?

A Brief History

A Former Chinese Civil Servant named Yu Ganchen first produced this Tea in 1875. Months earlier, he had lost his job, and in his shame, decided to become a Black Tea merchant to find a new sense of fulfilment. He travelled to Fujian province, intending to uncover the Industry's secrets. Indeed, in time, it proved a tremendous success.

Upon his return to his home in Qimen County, Anhui, he set up three Black Tea factories. Each produced quality China Black Tea. This, of course, eventually became known as Keemun Tea. Ultimately, his endeavours gave rise to many varieties, including this one! While considered a relatively "new brew", it continues to inspire casual drinker and connoisseurs alike.

  7. Suppose to be a high quality Keemun tea. What I have got was rather a mixture of high quality tea with some tea dust degrading it to relatively plain tea. perhaps I was unlucky and been provided by leftovers...
