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.

Comparing Keemun to Assam

My two favorite black teas so far are the Assam and the Keemun. They both have a full-bodied flavor, but the Keemun has a more complex aroma with a hint of smoke. When I first tasted it I got notes of apple pie. It is also less astringent than the Assam. Keemun has taken first place with me.

Wonderful tea with deep taste

I've been drinking Smith Tea's Keemun as a breakfast tea for 7 years. I start with a cup of their Assam and follow it up with Keemun. Makes my mornings more enjoyable and interesting.

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.
