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!

Smooth and Pleasant

I have tried several different Leaf teas recently trying to replace Harrods' of London Tea blends. Wendell tea has done this quite well. The aroma was somewhat off putting, having somewhat less than pleasant 'fermented grass leaves' odor, but i know that this is due to the black leaf fermentation and does not carry over to the flavour. The M.T.W Formosa Keemun is Brews with a very nice colour similar to Fall Oak Leaves. The taste is robust, plesant, and quite smooth. I brewed 4 rounded teaspoons with 5 cups of water at 212 F for 4.5 minutes.

    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.
