Imperial Keemun Mao Feng Black Tea
We have been offering Keemun Mao Feng since we first opened in 1993. However, in the last few years, truly great Keemuns have been difficult to find. We are so pleased to share this custom batch of Keemun, which exhibits a signature bright red cup, an unspeakably smooth texture, and most of all, a gentle sweet malty taste that is unique only to great Keemuns. A tea like this has been missing in action for years. We encourage you to reserve some of this great tea before it’s all gone. This batch of our Keemun Mao Feng can be enjoyed either hot or cold.
Anhui, China: Province in southeastern China, known for producing black teas in the late 1800’s. A number of excellent green and black teas are now grown in the region.
We enjoyed steeping this Keemun using a standard 6 oz porcelain Gaiwan with approximately 3-4 grams of tea, infused with near boiling water for 3 minutes. However, don’t be restrained to doing what we did. As with most great black teas, using the “English Tea” method of 1 teaspoon per cup works just as well. We encourage you to try different infusion techniques according to your own preferences.
