    • Mao Feng means "loosely twisted" and the tea leaves are much larger than the tightly twisted Keemun Black Label and Keemun Hao Ya. 
    • Unlike the small leaf tea plant cultivars used for Keemun Hao Ya and Keemun Black Label, Keemun Mao Feng's tea plant cultivar has much larger leaves. 
    • Unlike the other small leaf Keemuns, Keemun Mao Feng is not dried and smoked over pine.  The resulting cup lacks the smoky character of the small leaf Keemuns.
    • The malty, cocoa, dark molasses notes of this tea make this an extraordinary black tea and best enjoyed without milk or sugar.
    • Although the Chinese have had tea for 5,000 years, they did not start manufacturing Keemun until the 19th century.
