Keemun Mao Feng Black Tea

祁门毛峰红茶

The Origin Story

Our Keemun Mao Feng is a large leaf black tea from the Baita “White Tower” tea gardens in Anhui, China where the resident tea master – Mr Wang – is celebrated for his great skill. ‘Mao Feng’ refers to the fact that two leaves and a young, downy bud are picked with minimal twisting, rendering the leaves to look similar to ‘downy peaks’, which is the literal translation.

The local government exclusively invited Tom, our Head of Tea, to taste this tea as part of an initiative to economically develop the region, rewarding those whose dedication to the production of outstanding tea helps to enrich and nourish the high-quality tea industry.

The cultivar used for this tea is original to the area, meaning that it has been through over a hundred years of careful cultivation and refinement in its native soil. Picked in April, this tea has been 100% oxidised resulting in wiry black leaves that are tipped with gold. Minimal processing – unlike traditional Keemun Gong Fu – helps to retain complex floral and mineral aromas, with ripe, fruity undertones. Our Keemun Mao Feng reveals an outstanding, authentic expression for this origin: a rich and thick black tea with a subtle palate of malt, ginger and dried fruit.
