Due to its incredibly rich bouquet and dark red color, Keemun is considered one of China's finest black teas.The "Hao-Ya" grade is the best of Keemun teas. Hao-Ya roughly translated, means "needle leaf", referring to the beautiful tightly twisted leaves. The aroma has been referred to as toasty, nutty, chocolaty and is naturally slightly smokey. In the cup it is aromatic, rich and full-bodied. Hao Ya "A" is the finest grade of Keemun available. With a smooth flavor and plenty of chocolate note, it's the perfect choice for breakfast or the afternoon chocolate break!
