Super Keemun Tips Hao Ya A

This Super Keemun Hao Ya A is produced in very limited quanities. While Keemuns are considered to be the best of the China Black teas, this choice is the best and rarest of the Keemuns, and a prized tea. It has numerous "tips", or tea buds. 

Keemun tea has been produced in China since about 1875 in Qimen County in Anhui province.  The word Keemun is how Qimen became anglisized.  Prior to 1875 only green tea was produced in this province while black tea was manufactured elsewhere in China, notably Fujian province.  Today, Keemun is China's most popular tea.  

There are five standard grades of Keemun and at least two officially recognized 'super' grades.  The top quality of the standard group is Keemun 1st Grade and, while all grades are prepared from the same plant, the higher the grade the more smaller leaves and buds are present, the finer the cup.  Beyond these standard grade are Hao Ya A and B, with A being the higher quality.  This Hao Ya A contains all buds and is very delicate.

Water Temperature: 90 to 100°C  

Measure one teaspoon per cup 250ml.  

Steep Time: 3 minutes (1st infusion), 4-5 minutes (2+ infusions)

Keemun leaves and buds are small and can infuse quickly.  You may get up to five infusions from the same leaves. Some sources suggest boiling while others suggest using a slightly lower temperature (90 °C) for the first infusion and boiling for the subsequent ones, increasing steeping time for each subsequent infusion.
