Keemun Hoa Ya A Tea
From the Anhui Province in China, Keemun teas are often called the Burgundy of teas for their full body, natural sweetness, and superb aromatics. Keemun teas are often considered the quintessential English Breakfast tea, and Keemun Hoa Ya A is commonly known to grace the table of the Queen of England. It is an extremely rare tea; only 120 kilos of this particular Keemun Hoa Ya A are made per year. The leaves are hand sorted before and after firing, resulting in a uniformly wiry leaf appearance that yields a bright, coppery liquor with a full bodied, winey character accented by hints of oak and smoke. Infuse one teaspoon of leaves per cup in freshly boiled water and steep for 3-7 minutes. Takes milk and sugar well, but fabulous on its own. A sample is available for $3.00.
