Among the finest grades of Keemun, this tea has an earthy character with a smokey-honeyed sweetness. The dry leaf is clean, small, wiry and with abundant golden tip. It is excellent straight or with milk and sweetener.
Keemun is made from the local cultivar 槠叶种 (Zhu-ye-zhong). It is this particular bush, and the terroir that gives Keemun its distinctive flavor. Notably, many of the higher quality English Breakfast blends include Keemun as the primary tea.
1 tsp to a 8 oz cup
Milk and sugar optional
Keemun comes from Qimen county in Anhui province. (Keemun is the anglicized version of Qimen). It is relatively a newer tea. As the story goes, it was formulated in 1875 by a civil servant who was seeking a new vocation after losing his job. He was following his father’s advice in learning a skill rather than depending on “precarious officialdom” for a living. Before Keemun started to be manufactured, Anhui province only made green tea.

A wonderful smokey cup, rich, full, and perfect in this colder weather. Happy Earth has such a wide range of delights that it is continually tantalizing.
Having fallen in love with all the black teas provided by Happy Earth Tea, this is no exception. As described, it is very earthy but still sweet with a touch of honey. It's like the best possible version of what you'd think of when you imagine a pretty standard black tea, but it's even better than that!
Thank you Alyssa for the review. Glad that you are enjoying the Keemun.
I LOVE the Keemun Hao Ya B tea! I have not saved it for a special occasion, instead treating myself nearly every morning to this lovely black tea. I will be back soon to get more!
Happy Earth's Keemun Hao Ya B, Organic, is the rich, earthy, robust flavor I was looking for, a delicious treat first thing in the morning. Couldn’t be better!
