Keemun has a short – by Chinese standards – history that begun in 1875 in Qimen. An unsuccessful bureaucrat by the name of Yu Gancheng decided to quit working for the government and try his hand at tea making. Due to the great demand and high prices for black teas at the time, he travelled to Fujian to learn how to make black tea. Returning to Anhui he introduced black teas to the area, that up until then had just made green teas. Over the next decade or so, the process and tea continuously improved, culminating in 1883 with what is now known as Keemun black tea.
The amazing taste and aroma of this tea, combined with good marketing, combined to make this tea an instant hit, and was in huge demand overseas in England and the US. It won international prize in 1915 Panamanian world Expos.

You're reviewing: Superfine Keemun Mao Feng Black Tea
* Required Fields
As opposed to the cheaper Keemuns, this one is much better. The taste is stronger, more complex. I only tried it twice, as I recieved only a sample, but could tell this is a serious quality tea. I recommend doing the gong fu method with this one, as the quality is top notch! Flavors: Coccoa, Tobacco, Malt, Plum
Leaf: honey-like and nutty tones, strong flowery odour, slightly apple. More fruity tones come in after warming up. Taste: nicely bitter, without astringency, gets sweeter towards the end. Beautiful tea with very balanced aromatic profile and fresh taste. I strongly recommend!
I've tried it with a sample. I've tasted another keemun mao feng which was a little bit different. This one remember me kemun hao ya, that obviously is always from the same place. The perfume is very floreal and the taste has some chocolat note
This is a very complex tea. The aroma is like burgundy or fine wine; it has a dark fruit note and a sharp bite on the nose. It is pleasant to smell. Brewing in the cup, it smells like cacao and very light woodsy notes. The taste is soft and smooth, with sweet floral notes and a chocolate-like aftertaste. I prefer this tea to Keemun Hao Ya, because it is fruitier and sweeter. It is not as strong, but carries a similar mouthfeel. The aftertaste on this Mao Feng is spectacular. There is no astringency, and my mouth does not dry after drinking this tea. I would recommend to anyone looking for a complex black tea. It is very complex, and very good. Overall 9/10
Got it as a sample, and was pleased. Nice, mellow, and almost little syrupy/malty, in a good way.
Spectacular tea. Very sweet and smooth in both taste and smell. Definitely one of the best black teas I have ever had.
The leaves of this tea are so fine and wiry and smell so wonderful. This summer I got to try 3 of the Teavivre keemuns side by side. I did not have this one to compare to. At the time I determined that the Hao Ya was my favorite of the 3. It offered the deep notes of cocoa as well as hints of fruitiness. I think for mornings the Hao Ya may still be my favorite as it offers a tad more briskness, but this is such an elegant tea. It is so smooth. with some of the familiar notes of keemun. When I sip I first am hit with the malt and cocoa aspects of this tea. At the end of the sip in comes a hint of floral followed by a fruity sweetness. I am not getting any woody notes or smoke notes in this tea. This is another great Keemun, although leaning on the more fruitier side.
3 min at 200° 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.
The leaves are very thin, slightly curly. i wanted to “pet” them,haha Western method Teavivre’s parameters 2tsp 8oz 195F 4 min (Teavivre recommends 3-5) dark, wine notes along with some bread cake, no smoke. decided to add 1tsp of maple syrup to see if it would make it bread cake. and it did. like raisin bread cake. so good. delicious.
I was lucky enough to receive a sample of this from a friend, and I'm so happy I got to try it because it's a lovely tea. I usually don't buy Keemuns for myself because I find them quite heavy and thick. But this one is very different from others I've tried. It's still full-bodied but it has some floral notes that really lighten the feel. It's quite creamy and lacks the super heavy smoke notes I taste in most Keemuns. I also find some green notes in there. Like moss or wet grass. Not something I would have expected at all. It's really a lovely tea.

Reply: Dear Alen, Because gaiwan is small. If you want to take more steeps, you can steep very short in first three steeps with the tempreture of 85 degree. Usually if you can control the tempreture and time very well, you can steep more than 7 times.
