Imperial Keemun Hao Ya Black Tea
$15.00 – $46.00 — available on subscription
Hao Ya means fine, furry tips, and this batch of tea brings the classic sweet and gentle maltiness that is unique to true Keemuns. A bright, ruby red cup and the silky, luscious viscosity are trademarks of what is known as the “Burgundy” of black teas. We’ve been looking long and hard for a Keemun that deserves to be labeled as our Imperial grade of Keemun Hao Ya. And we’re really proud to share this extraordinary tea to our customers.
Anhui, China: Province in southeastern China, known for producing black teas in the late 1800’s. A number of excellent green and black teas are now grown in the region.
As always, good water is essential to a good tea experience, so please choose water of high quality to brew your favorite tea. We recommend steeping 3 grams in a 6 oz. Gaiwan with nearly boiling (208º F). Of all our Keemuns, this one would work best if enjoyed with the typical English style preparation.
The aroma alone of this elegant tea sent my SIX senses to a new level! It goes beyond the oft-used descriptive term “floral” and from the outset you begin to take really small “detailed” sips. wow….
Worth the extra money, if you have it.
As always: easy to order, fast delivery, superb tea!
It’s always the same: I am delighted with both the product and with how easy (and fun) it is to buy it.
The tea, as expected, is exquisite.
