This benchmark example of Keemun black tea is one of the most wonderful single-origin teas in our range. Originating from Anhui in China, this delightful tea is robust and yet smooth with malty and orchid notes with a distinct coca finish.

Keemun Mao Feng is a fine grade Chinese black tea hailing from the picturesque Huangshan Mountains in the Anhui Province of China. This area is renowned for its natural beauty and low-hanging clouds which are key to the climate that produces this delicious, distinctive tea.

Formed from tightly rolled whole black tea leaves with a distinctive curl and made from only whole leaf buds harvested in early spring, the quality of this tea is clear from the pure dry aroma of the tea before brewing even begins!

Once brewed, a robust, smooth infusion results with slight malt and smoke and a hint of orchid. The flavour is rounded out by distinct cocoa notes for a truly decadent flavour.


To Enjoy

Place one teaspoon per cup into an infuser, filter or teapot. Add freshly boiled water and infuse for 4 minutes. Serve immediately or remove leaves to prevent spoiling. May be enjoyed with milk or lemon to taste.
