China Keemun Tea

Keemun loose leaf tea. See Hao Ya A & B, Mao Feng & Jhin Hao.
China’s Keemun tea is said to be ideal with toast and marmalade at breakfast and with spicy food. The larger leaf, fuller bodied keemuns such as Mao Feng may be drunk with milk. Produced in Anhui Province they are known as the ‘burgundy of teas’ having good body and a noted winey character. These ‘kung fu’ teas are traditionally made with great skill.
Elegant Keemun teas (spelled Qimen in the East) are produced in four areas of China’s Anhui Province near Huang Shan city. It has a temperate climate and plenty of rainfall. In fact its swirling mists high in the mountains creates a unique and spectacular growing environment. The highest grade teas are picked in the spring. In order of picking these are Hoa Ya A and then Hoa Ya B. They have a small neat leaf giving a rich, full-bodied, slightly sweet flavour. Mao Feng has a slightly larger leaf to produce a richer flavour. Generally brew for five minutes.

China Keemun Peony tea

  • Customer also bought: .... :
  • Tie Guan Yin oolong
  • Ceylon White Tea Oodoowerre Silver Needle
  • Darjeeling Castleton tea
Service:++
Product:nyt

As usual, the tea arrived quickly, in a lovely pizza-style box, inside which are the wonderful 3-layer tea bags (paper, aluminium foil & mylar). BTW I HATE it when the website questions my spelling of aluminium. This is the bloody UK, twerps!
But to continue.
The Ti Kuan Yin (Tie Guan Yin, fooh!) is superb, a hearty greenish oolong. The Darj. is a repeat purchase, well-known on my shelf. The Keemun I haven't tasted for decades, & am looking forward to renewing my acquaintance. And the Oodoowerre... I am keenly anticipating this.
I shall report on the Greys webite in due course.

Product : A new one for me and please bear in mind that I regularly drink Grey's China green, so what I say about China Keemun Peony will be coloured by my comparing it with Chun Mee Moon Palace. To me, Grey's China Keemun Peony black tea has a smokey aroma, but, oddly, not a smokey flavour. I agree that its favour is rich and toasty and find it has astringency and something about it of red wine. I love the smokey promise and particularly the lingering after-taste, which is wonderfully clean.

Service rating : The company provides a very efficient service and fills a gap in the market: it is very difficult to buy interesting loose-leaf teas in supermarkets.
Also the company has not been tempted to follow the current fad for flavoured teas, apart from traditional jasmine and bergamot.
Product : Delicious and interesting, but a bit expensive

On 18-Dec-2015 the supplier responded:
We do try to make navigation of our large Tea Store and other pages on our website as easy as possible. We are looking at changing the page to which you are directed after having added an item to the basket so as to make shopping easier.

The Diamond Jubilee has received good feedback since first blended in 2012. I am sorry that you were disappointed with it.
