From Tealyra

Qimen Mao Feng Supreme is a variety of Keemun Tea, known for being more smooth and delicate than the usual Keemun offerings. Qimen Mao Feng Supreme is harvested in the traditional manner around Qingming (or the 5th of April) each year, when the buds and leaves reach the perfect pinnacle of growth. Qimen Mao Feng Supreme is comprised of slender curled, narrow leaves, together with delicate golden tips. The aroma of the dried leaves contains hints of spice, that are released while brewing to produce a fragrant aroma! Qimen Mao Feng Supreme infuses a smooth, velvety cup that is delicately sweet and has a deep, strong fruit notes without any bitterness or astringency present.

This is a very mild Qimen (“Keemun”) black tea from China. The leaves are large—about an inch long, dry—and wirey, with a nice lightly cocoa odor. I brewed a teaspoonful (actually a large pinch of about 1.5 g) in 8 oz boiling water for 4 min. In a fabric drawstring teabag. This produced a clear brown liquor with flavors of stewed vegetal fruits over top of a light keemun flavor. Not as strong in character as I would like. I’ve had better Qimen teas at lower price from this and other vendors. Just my subjective opinion, YMMV.

Following up on my first note, I subsequently brewed another 2.5 g in a glazed tea pot for 4 min. Two steeping’s in that manner, virtually identical. I have attached a photo of representative spent leaves in a saucer, showing virtually intact small leaves and a few stems and a few buds. I stand by my original comments: smooth, muted, not as intensely flavored as I would like. Notes of dirty cardboard. I see no reason for this to be higher priced than the Keemun Mao Feng Premium, which tastes far better, unless a person really likes large leaves.
