Overview of M.T.W. Formosa Keemun

This unique tea from the island of Formosa was one of Mr. Wendell’s first tea imports and a personal favorite. It’s long, silvery leaf gives an attractive appearance, contrasting most mainland China Keemun teas. When brewed, it yields a full-bodied brew with a pleasant bouquet. This is a superb black tea that is not to be overlooked.

M.T.W. Formosa Keemun tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. M.T.W. Formosa Keemun tea should be steeped for 4-5 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!

This is one of my favorite MTW teas. It reminds me of a delicious, earthy tea served at one of my local Asian food restaurants. I drink this tea as both a pick-me-up and as a comfort brew. It has such a wonderful aroma! Highly recommended!

A very light, subtle tea. Has a very pleasant, refreshing taste that is not overpowering. Brews to a sparkling, rust brown.
