A package arrived from china today! Yunnan sourcing order has arrived and with it some new and old yunnan blacks!
This one is new, the aroma when i opened the bag was malty and sweet! The tea itself is not really sweet but very malty without astringancy, perhaps a tiny bit fruity?
I found this info about the mao feng varietal.
Keemun Mao Feng (祁門毛峰) – A variety, where Mao Feng means Fur Peak, which is made of only slightly twisted leaf buds and is sometimes noted for a smoother and different flavor. Many people prefer to brew a smaller quantity of this tea for a much longer time than usual, up to 7 minutes, to bring out more interesting tones in the tea.
I will try half the leaf for 7 min, kinda like i brew Indian assam teas.
I really enjoy this one. The taste is rounder and fuller than the golden buds dian hong, yet not as sharp and smoky as the purplevarietals. It is something of its own i guess, havn´t tried that many keemuns.
Anyways its time to get some shut eye!
