Ning Hong Jhin Hao: lovely, rich China black tea.

Without doubt Ning Hong Jhin Hao lives up to the reputation of Keemuns as the 'Burgundy of Teas' however it is produced, not in Anhui but in Jiangxi Province. It has small neat leaves, indicative of the very finest quality. It is a delicate, smooth tea with a complex, warmly aromatic aroma. In the cup it is rich and biscuity with a rich winey character. Drink without milk. Very enjoyable! Use one teaspoon per person and one for the pot. Infuse for four minutes with freshly boiled water.

Heaven in a cup "Bought this, and other teas, after helpful phone call with Mr Grey.  If this is what quality Keemun tastes like, then I am now a happy Keemun fan.  Wonderful."
The "best" Keemun "I regard this as the most enjoyable of all the Keemun teas Grey's offer.
Although it is expensive, it is so smooth, with a rich taste without being too strong and definitely requires plenty of time to be set aside for its enjoyment, obviously should never be drunk with any additions."
A wonderful tea with plenty to enjoy "This excellent tea has hints of Keemun Hoa Ya A and B except that the smoky flavour and aroma is almost indetectable. A much smoother and lighter flavour with a subtle taste. The colour of the tea is golden brown whilst the tea leave are small, short and needle-like. A wonderful tea with plenty to enjoy no matter what your palate."

Tea from Grey's Teas

Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.

We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

This loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

    Having tried Grey’s Keemun Hao Ya B tea in April, and being incredibly impressed at the flair and quality, I decided to try Ning Hong Jhin Hao. These two excursions into Keemun teas by Grey’s has been quite a revelation. Previously I have tried Keemun and Yunnan from other suppliers and they have had a limited range. Although enjoyable they were nowhere near as good as the Grey’s varieties.

    The only problem is I am now hooked on them, and so are my family. We all agree that the tea is of the highest quality, brilliant flavour, and easy to select as a result of the descriptions (and reviews) on Grey’s website.

    I have been drinking ‘proper’ tea since starting Uni in Bath back in the 1970’s. Having started out buying Jackson’s tea from Jolly’s in Bath and on Piccadilly, buying from Betty’s in Yorkshire when they closed, and latterly buying from Fortnum’s and Harrods, Grey’s teas are shining through. Really impressed with this company and I am looking forward to buying their teas into the future. Thank you so much Grey’s!!!!
