BLACK TEA

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.

Delicately Earthy

This tea is a great blend for those times when you want something slightly different. It's perfect for a cozy morning - or anytime.

Delicious alone, or in my blends.

I love this Keemun, either straight or in my own blends with only Smith's Assam or Assam/Puer. the Keemun has just the right amount of "smokiness" to make it a perfect choice for breakfast, especialy on cold mornings.

Fantastic, Earthy, Dark Black Tea

I love this tea! It is very dark and has an earthy aroma and taste to it. It might not be for everyone, but I love it. I am not well versed in describing taste, so I won't try; I like it, and you might too. Beautiful thin full leaves and a great way to wake up. Definitely a different taste to the Indian black teas.

Excellent, as always

I have regularly purchased the Keemun and the Assam teas for over 7 years and the excellent quality has never varied. The Keemun has a deep complex flavor that I find exciting.

Keemun

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.
