Keemun mao feng(祁門毛峰), also spelled Qi Men mao feng is a special type of Keemun black tea, usually more expensive than generic or lower grades, but not as pricey as Hao Ya A and B.

Like other Keemun, Keemun Mao Feng tends to have notes of wine, cocoa, and dried fruit. It is not intensely smoky, but usually has a slight smoky or toasty quality to the aroma. Its flavor and mouthfeel may range from very smooth to slightly sharp with a peppery finish.

Although not related to mao feng green tea (such as huang shan mao feng), both teas have similarly shaped leaves (long, flat, and slightly curved), and are considered high grades of tea.

Keemun Mao Feng is one of the styles of Keemun that has been produced outside its region of origin in Qimen county. In Anhui, it is also produced in Xiuning county, and outside of the province, in Hubei.
