Welcome to the Tea Geek Wiki!

Tea Of The Week

Example of Qimen Hao Ya A dry leaf.

Keemun Hao Ya A is produced in the Qimen County of Huangshan Shi, in Anhui province. ("Keemun" was actually the English spelling for "Qimen" during the colonial era.) Keemun is produced in four growing regions near Huang Shan and Huang Shan City: Dongzhi, Guichi, Shitai, and Yixian.

The primary ingredient of many English Breakfast tea blends, Keemun comes in many varieties. One of the highest or most sought after grade, however, is Hao Ya (毫芽, lit. "long-hair buds"), which is sub-divided into grades A and B with grade A being the better quality. The dry leaves are especially dark in color. The leaves are picked very small and sorted both before and after processing to differentiate between grades A and B. (more)
