Superfine Keemun Mao Feng Black Tea review


Superfine Keemun Mao Feng Black Tea (Teavivre)

3 min at 200°

Keemum Mao Feng, one special variety of Keemun black tea origins from Qi Men County in Anhui province of China, has famous reputation for its peculiar aroma and shape. It has also been made widely familiar as one of the four world’s best black tea. It is carefully processed so that the shape of the tea leaves resemble that of the Mao Feng Green Tea. This is why it got the name “Keemum Mao Feng“.

With the thin and twisted strips of tea leaves and peculiar aroma (fruity mixed with orchid-like), those russet interwoven tea leaves look neat and taste wonderful.

This tea wants a lower steeping temperature than most black teas- at 212° it gets bitter and too strong. At 195°-200°, it’s a nice smooth strong tea. It’s got a bit of astringency and a slight fruitiness. When they say ‘superfine’ they mean it however- the tiny little leaves go right through my tea strainer.
