Featured on China's top ten list, Keemun black tea is known for its rich chocolately flavour and sweet aroma. This Keemun Maofeng has a sweet flavour with hints of longan and red dates, laced with a light roastedness.

Why we love it:

  • This high grade Keemun Maofeng variety consists only of buds and young tender shoots, making it a sweet black tea with virtually no astringency. 
  • The leaves are twisted into strip shapes and lightly roasted, resulting in a rich fruity and toasted flavour.
  • Because it consists of only buds and tender shoots, Keemun Maofeng is much smoother and robust than lower grade Keemun teas, which often come in broken form and are used for English Breakfast blends.

Keemun Maofeng is grown in the Qimen mountains of Anhui, China. ‘Keemun’ is the old Western spelling for the Qimen (祁門) area and ‘Maofeng’ (毛峰) means ‘furry peaks’, referring to the tiny hairs on the buds. It is also used to refer to unshaped teas, like this one.

While black tea is often brewed with boiling water, we find that the fruity notes and nuanced flavours of Keemun black tea are enhanced with slightly cooler temperatures.

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
