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.

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.
