Facts About Mao Feng Black Tea

  • The word “Keemun” derives from an archaic English spelling of Qimen County.

  • The Tea leaves used often grow alongside Huang Shan Mao Feng Green Tea.

  • The unique climatic conditions in Anhui contribute to its taste and profile.

  • Mao Feng won several awards throughout the 20th century. 

The Story Behind Keemun Mao Feng Tea

A former Chinese civil servant called Yu Ganchen first produced Mao Feng in 1875. Months earlier, he had lost his job, something he considered shameful. Ganchen subsequently decided to become a Black Tea merchant to discover a new sense of fulfilment.

He travelled to Fujian Province to uncover the industry’s secrets before implementing them at his home in Qimen County. The rest is history. 

How To Make Keemun Mao Feng Tea

  1. Purchase a Tea Filter or Infuser for ease and convenience.

  2. Add about five grams od the Keemun Tea into the accessory.

  3. Place the item in a cup and pour in freshly boiled water at 100°C.

  4. Allow it to infuse for 3-5 minutes for the finest flavour.

How to Serve: Milk, sugar, honey or lemon - you decide. Alternatively, serve black. 

Tasting Notes: Embrace bold winey flavours with smoky hints and a sweet and fruity finish. 

Does it Have Caffeine? 

The energy-boosting capacity of caffeine is world-renowned. It is a stimulating constituent found in at least sixty plants, including Coffea (Coffee) and, of course, Camellia sinensis (Tea).

Our China Keemun Mao Feng Tea, in particular, contains about 45-mg of caffeine per 8-oz cup. This fact alone means that it will likely assist you in getting out of bed in the morning. What could be better? 

Benefits of Keemun Mao Feng Black Tea

Countless vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants make up the nutritional value of Keemun Mao Feng Tea. Among them are Vitamins B2, B5, B9 and D, accompanied by Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Potassium, Sodium and Zinc.

These chemical compounds can combat and, in some instances, neutralise free radicals in the body. The result is that they reduce the risk of developing several chronic conditions. 

Research from the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that volunteers who drank three Black Tea cups daily had an 11% lower chance of heart disease.

Meanwhile, according to a 2003 study, individuals who had five servings experienced reduced “bad” LDL cholesterol by 11%. Finally, evidence from 2012 demonstrated that it could decrease systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

  9. 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...
