From The Tea Table

From China’s Anhui region, Keemun Mao Feng is an exquisite Keemun with characteristic twisted leaves that yields a rich yet mellow brew with a lovely coppery liquor. Compared to other Keemun teas, this one is sweeter and less sharp, with a highly complex flavor profile featuring floral notes against a background of roasted chocolate. Goes well with desserts (especially chocolate) and rich breakfasts. Use 1 tsp of leaves and brew 3-5 minutes in freshly boiled water. Try a second infusion.

Last week was busy and this weekend has been even busier. I had wanted to get to part 2 of the house organizing project this weekend but it will have to wait. The good news is that the worst of the closet organization is done. I can find my shoes now. LOL.

I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while. It was hermetically sealed in its shiny gold packet. The dry leaves smell very lightly smoky and have a mouthwatering breadiness.

I would call the color closer to a dark amber beer color than copper, as I don’t see much pink in it. The liquor is clear and smells divine. There are very definite cocoa notes in this, with the breadiness of the dry leaf as an undercurrent. Chocolate croissants! The smokiness smooths out in the steeping so it’s just a mild hint around the edges. I can see what they mean in the description about the floral notes, but I wouldn’t have identified them as that. I might have said honey, only a bit fresher and less heavy smelling.

The flavor is pretty much just like the aroma. It’s a smooth tea with no sharp edges, and a rather soft mouthfeel that leaves behind a fresh coolness in the aftertaste. It’s chewy without being as hefty as most other teas I’d describe that way.

It’s really lovely.
