This superior grade of Keemun is carefully processed in order to keep the leaves whole. These sleek, black leaves yield a rich amber/red infusion with a strong, sweet chocolatey aroma and flavour.

Keemun Black Mao Feng definitely has a lot of taste profile overlap with Keemun Hao Ya, although where the Hoa Ya has a round mouthfeel, with caramel buttery notes, this has moderate mouthfeel, milder carmel notes, none of the butter, and definitely a drier earthier character which – when combined with the sweetness of the carmel notes – in remincient of mildly sweet dry cocoa. It finishes much drier and lighter than the Hao Ya, which emphasizes the dry sweet cocoa impression.
All in all, a quite enjoyable winter savoring tea.
