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.

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 1 rounded tsp (3 g) for 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.
