Description

Keemun Mao Feng: deep bitter-chocolate aroma. A wonderful cup.

From Anhui province, Keemun Mao Feng is an Imperial grade Keemun, picked in March and April, has a natural orchid character and depth of flavour. Its long wiry leaf is a wonderful example of the art of China tea making. It is made exclusively with pickings of two equal length leaves and a bud. It is reported that this tea is one of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s favourites. On drinking it, this tea lives up to this elevated status.

“Keemun Mao Feng is my favourite Keemun tea for several years now! That orchid edge gives its deep Keemun flavour an alert, extra dimension. I like it white or black, depending on the time of day. It’s rich, nuanced and assertive enough to always bring your awareness to it, sitting quietly or busy.”
“Subtle, well-rounded tea “This tea has a pleasing colour, clean taste, and some subtlety and complexity. It represents very good value.”

Tea from Grey’s Teas

Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.

Sourcing our tea

This tea has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

This loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

These square, silver coloured caddies have hinged lids. Again, 60 gram, 125 gram and 250 gram options are generally available as options which can be selected from the drop-down list. Packets and caddies have full-colour labels.

    Product:
    Service: Website is easy use and the product arrived very quickly
    Vendor response: I would suggest the Second Flush Assams or even a mid-season if you want pronounced maltiness.

    Product: I purchased this tea for a colleague in Addis Ababa, who specifically requested Keemun Mao Feng. I despatched it by FedEx to Ethiopia the same day, and was received in Addis 2 days later. My colleague was highly delighted with the product, so will be buying from Richard Grey on a regular basis
    Service: Extremely good, Richard Grey, was extremely helpfull with his knowledge of the various teas, nicely packaged, and his recommendation for the tea I purchased was a excellent choice. Will most certainly buy from him again

    Product:
    Service: Good service
    Vendor response: I am sorry to hear that the tin was dented. This is the first occasion we have heard of this problem. We do protect them with stiff corrugated card inside the padded outer bag. It also states ‘Do not crush’ on the label but realsie that unfortunately this could be seen as an invitation to a minority. If you would like us to send you a new tin of this tea please contact us.
