KEEMUN GREEN MAOFENG - 祁门毛峰

KEEMUN GREEN MAOFENG - 祁门毛峰

from 11.00

Category: Green

Origin: Qimen, China

Harvest: Spring 2018

Keemun teas are produced exclusively in the Qimen County of Huangshan City, in Anhui province. The cultivar used for Keemun is the same as that used in production of Huangshan Maofeng. While many varieties of Keemun exist, with different techniques used for each, most Keemun undergoes particularly slow withering and oxidation process, yielding more nuanced aroma and flavor.

Keemun Green Maofeng is produced using the same leaves as our Keemun Black Tea, instead of processing this as a black tea, our farmer turned this into a green tea. The result is delightful and mind blowing: it contains the delicate floral taste of Maofeng green tea, but ends with a hint of sweet potato in the finish.

Tasting Notes: notes of floral orchid notes, followed by a hint of sweet potato in the finish.
