About Keemun Hao Ya B

Keemun Hao Ya B is a high grade of Keemun black tea.

It is produced similarly to the "A" grade, but harvested slightly later. Although usually considered a lower grade than Hao Ya A, and slightly less expensive, the differences between the two grades are subtle, and preference between them is a matter of personal taste. The variation in quality from one batch or one year to the next can be greater than the difference between the A and B grades from the same source.

Sometimes, this tea will be sold under the name "Hao Ya" without specification of A or B. If the letter is not specified, we classify teas in this category.

Like A, Keemun Hao Ya B tensd to have wiry, thin, slightly curved leaves with a very dark color, almost black, sometimes slightly silvery. It is a tippy tea, making it more strongly caffeinated than lower grades.

The overall character is similar to other Keemuns. The aroma is slightly smoky, but this tea is often described as having a floral scent suggestive of orchid.
