Mao Feng Black
Black tea is one of the most recent types to be produced: it was first made in China, possibly in response to European tastes, in the late 1700s or early 1800s.
This new style of Chinese black tea is a worthy addition to the category; its sleek black leaves yield a dark amber infusion and earthy aroma. Produced on an organic farm in Zhejiang Province at 2,400 feet elevation, its rich flavor—with distinct notes of ginseng and sweet potato—holds up through a few infusions. Fans of Keemun or Assam will enjoy the depth and strength.
Region: Zhejiang Province

I bought Mao Feng, Lapsang Souchong, and Chai. Quality is outstanding! I can say this is the best tea I've ever had.
I first experienced Mao Feng Black at a restaurant in Indianapolis called the Public House. Sadly, I think it has closed. I thought it was one of the best teas I have ever had and I made a digital note about it on my phone. I am a big fan of Teavana's Golden Monkey, which is significantly more expensive. I think this tea rivals it for me with a lot of the same characteristics. This tea will be my new go to for sure. The green tea that I bought, I am not nuts about. I will try a different one in the future. The online buying was smooth, efficient and timely.
I always loved this tea and treated myself to this order. Thank you for your quality products. One question: Since it has been a lo-o-ng time since I sipped this, what is the recommended brewing time?
one of my favorite black teas- eagerly await its availability
Good tea for any time of the day. It is a forgiving tea that allows me to be a bit careless with the steep time, and still produces a very drinkable cup. This seems to be an attempt at providing a tea similar to the Keemun Mao Feng that was discontinued a few years ago. While it is good, in my opinion, this Mao Feng does not match that discontinued tea. I am admittedly biased, since that older tea was my all time favorite, and I do really miss it. Still, this is a good tea that should be tried if you want a black tea with a mild, balanced flavor.
I am liking this tea a lot. Love the earthy taste and the smooth finish. I steep for about 3 minutes now after trying longer steep times.
