Introduction of Keemun Mao Feng Black Tea

Keemun Mao Feng is a high-quality black tea that originated in Qimen County, Anhui Province, China. It was first produced in the early 20th century and quickly gained popularity around the world due to its unique taste and aroma.

Mao Feng in Keemun Mao Feng means Fur Peak as well, just like in Huangshan Mao Feng. The name comes from the white hairs that cover the leaves, which are picked from the peaks of Qimen County.

The tea trees grow at an altitude of 500-1000 meters, in a climate with distinct seasons and abundant rainfall, providing ideal conditions for the growth of tea trees.

How is Keemun Mao Feng made?

The production process of Keemun Mao Feng involves four main steps: plucking, withering, rolling, and drying.
The tea leaves are hand-plucked in the early spring, when the buds are still young and tender, to ensure the highest quality.
After plucking, the leaves are spread out to wither, which removes excess moisture and allows the leaves to become more pliable.
Then, the leaves are rolled into thin strips to release the tea’s natural oils and flavors.
Finally, the leaves are dried, which stops the oxidation process and locks in the tea’s unique taste and aroma.

This traditional method has been used for over a century, and it is what gives Keemun Mao Feng its distinctive flavor and aroma.

How to brew Keemun Mao Feng?

To brew a perfect cup of Keemun Mao Feng, follow these steps:

  1. Warm the teapot or cup with hot water to prevent the tea from cooling too quickly.

  3. Pour hot water (90°C) into the pot or cup and let it steep for 20-30 seconds.
  4. Pour the tea into a cup and enjoy the rich and complex flavor and aroma.
