Hao Ya is one of the finest grades of Keemun tea from the mountainous Anhui Province in China. It has a thin, wiry, tightly twisted leaf with a slightly smoky flavor and aroma. Excellent straight or with milk and sugar.

Our favorite!

Not only is Keemun our favorite morning cup, but Steven Smith brand of it is superior to other distributors. Always full fresh tea aroma and flavor. Hope it stays available!

Keemun No. 21

Keemun is my all time favorite tea. It’s full bodied and slightly smoky but very smooth. No need for cream or sugar in my mind. My morning cuppa makes the whole day better!


Full leaf Keemun black tea from Anhui Province in China.

Blend Numerology

Automatic winner in blackjack-and black tea.


For best flavor, bring spring or freshly drawn filtered water to a boil (212 degrees). Steep five minutes. Smell smoke? It's probably just the tea.

Chinese Black Tea

Keemun tea is grown in the mountainous region of Eastern China called Anhui Province. There are many grades of Keemun, with Hao Ya being one of the best. Keemun Hao Ya has a very thin, wiry and tightly twisted leaf that is black with grey hues. This brings a unique, slightly smoky flavor and aroma that reminds us of camping on the Oregon coast. A great self drinking tea, tasty neat or with milk and sugar.

Qimen County

Qimen County is located in western Huang Shan Shi Prefecture in southern Anhui Province of China, and is famous for making one of the world's best black teas—Keemun. The county is still very rural compared to other parts of China, so it's the perfect place to slow down, kick up your feet and drink some fantastic tea. Harvest times are in the Spring and Summer.
