• Keemun Mao Feng

    • £7.80

      Keemun tea has a relatively short history. Prior to 1875, only green tea was produced in Qimen County (China). This changed when a former civil servant, Yu Quianchen, traveled to Fujian province to learn the secrets of black tea production. Keemun Mao Feng is picked earlier in the year than other Keemun varieties and has fine wiry leaves. It was reportedly presented to Queen Victoria as a birthday present (it was first produced during her reign) and it is said that it became one of her favourite teas.

    Preparation:

    Water temperature: 90-95˚C

    Infusion time: 3 to 5 minutes
