M.T.W. Formosa Keemun
This unique tea selection from the island of Taiwan (Formosa) was one of Mr. Wendell’s first tea imports and his personal favorite. Formosa Keemun is a visually attractive tea composed of long, silvery leaves, contrasting with darker colored mainland China Keemun style teas.
When brewed, it yields a full-bodied brew with a pleasant aroma and taste reminiscent of stone fruit. If you enjoy the characteristics of Chinese black tea, then this superb tea that is not to be overlooked.
Brewing Tips: 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!
