Finest Keemun Mao Feng Black Tea

Size

  • Finest Keemun Mao Feng is an artisanal black tea handmade in small quantities. 'Keemun' refers to Qimen county in China's Anhui Province, while 'Mao Feng' describes the fine strips the tea has been crafted into, which requires a great deal of skill. Qimen produced only green tea until the 1880s, when a young official lost his job and was disgraced. His father had advised him that it was a better guarantee of success to have a skill to make a living than to hold a position of authority. He traveled to Fujian to learn how to make black tea and on his return set up three factories to manufacture black tea from the same leaves his competitors were making green tea from.
