The Burgundy of Tea - This Hao Ya Keemun produced in Qui Men County, Anhui Province, China is the highest grade available. These small, dark leaves steep a complex cup that is sweet and smooth with a touch of smoke and chocolate. This tea is not bitter and can be infused a second time.
Winner in the North American Tea Championship Keemun Tea category.
Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.

What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
Hearty and full bodied

Everything a good Keemun should be. Very rich, hearty, and puts hair on your chest. Very chocolaty, almost an espresso essence. I found that if I steeped it for 4 minutes it was a bit too strong for my taste, so I only steep for two minutes. Save the leaves for a second cup!

This tea is perfection in a cup. Every time I indulge in this tea I realize it's power. There is no way you cannot be fully present during the experience. The world slows down while I enjoy the crisp and unforgettable flavor that I have found nowhere else. I am redoubling my order.

Simply Bliss in a pot!
Prefer All Day Breakfast

This is very similar to All Day Breakfast, but without the Oolong complexity. This tea is good, but I prefer the other.

This is an exceptionally smooth tea with a subtle, intriguing flavor. I liked it very much, but I need to drink it a few more time to decide if it's one of my favorites. It does not become bitter with reheating, which is a big plus for me.
