mao feng is 2 leaves and a bud, not necessarily intact. That's all it means, I believe. Camellia Sinesis does it correctly, 'cause there are other mao fengs out there even if most people mean the green kind and the keemun kind.
Also the names Keemun and Mao Feng have been rather diluted over time as more growers, sellers, vendors come into the mix. You almost have to ask if it is not listed on the site. There is Keemun from Keemun, and there is Keemun from other growing areas which gets really confusing.
So, like Dong Ding from Taiwan, it is starting to describe a type or style versus origin. Some vendors stick with the strictest nomenclature however.
Technically and IMHO, likely not. The Qimen is from Qimen (county) should be also Keemun.
The Hong Tao is likely not from Qimen or they would likely say it was and would call it Keemun, so it is likely not true Keemun. It is from Anhui however, the province where Qimen is located. It is a Mao Feng style like Keemun Mao Feng.
Perhaps asking them would shed some light on the subject. But it seems to me that the name Keemun is in a state of flux, much like Dong Ding from Taiwan. Ask 10 people in the know and get 10 different answers.
But my interpretation of events may be completely off.

I think Shah´s answer makes the most sense considering I´ve seen both black and green teas labeled as Mao Feng and within the black teas some Mao Feng are definitely Keemun while others are definitely other types of Chinese black tea.
