Keemun Mao Feng Supreme from Strand Tea

Keemun Mao Feng Supreme from Strand Tea

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Black

Where to Buy:  Strand Tea

Product Description:

Keemun Mao Feng Supreme from the mountain slopes of Anhui Provence is a great tasting whole leaf black tea.  Typically Keemuns are breakfast teas, but the Mao Feng Supreme is a great ‘self drinker’ or stands milk well so can be taken any time of day.  A beautiful twisted leaf yeilds a cup with little astringency and the classic toasty/winey notes of a good Keemun.  We have 3 grades of Keemun and this is the middle grade.  It is a well made tea and well worth the price.

Taster’s Review:

I placed an order a while back with Strand Tea, and received this tea as a free sample with my order (Strand Tea also included a small package of cookies with my order!)  I’m really glad that I got the opportunity to try this Keemun – it’s fantastic!

The flavor is robust.  It is sweet and slightly smoky.  Hints of black currant and I can even taste some cocoa notes in the distance.  Just as the description above suggests, there is very little astringency to this cup, and it does finish slightly dry:  a wine-like finish.  The sweet, wine-like taste lingers in the aftertaste.

This tea has a very autumnal kind of feel for me, and perhaps it’s just the fact that it IS autumn that I say that.  But the toasty, slightly smoky character of this tea is a very cozy kind of taste – evoking thoughts of warm, comfy blankets and roaring fires in the fireplace.  This is the kind of tea you want to have around to warm you up on a chilly afternoon!

A fabulous Keemun – and it is VERY reasonably priced!
