1 Tasting Note
I’m a fan of rich, Keemun-style China black teas in the morning. Not being able to afford a daily pot of Hao Ya “A” prompted me to seek out similar teas at a more reasonable price. I was underwhelmed by Upton’s Hao Ya “B”, so I kept sampling and this tea, China Congou Ning Hong Jing Hao (item ZK94) was the winner to my palate. Though this is not an inexpensive tea, I think it shares many qualities with many of the more expensive Keemuns, even though it is not exactly like a Keemun. I’ve been drinking this one almost daily for the better part of a decade, and I never let myself run out. Though I continue to sample other Keemuns and high end China Congous, this one still remains my favorite.
