From Vicony Teas

Keemun Hao Ya B is also rarely available outside China. So good is it that this beautifully winey tea is largely kept within China. Followed Hao Ya A,it ranks second in keemun grading. Known for its fine buds,it shows prominent amounts of golden tips. We Chinese say the bouquet of the tea like the perfume of an orchid while many foreign friends told me it is like toast hot from the oven. Being made of young buds,the gourmet tea is mellow, sweet and even suitable for gentlemen who seldom drink black tea.

Keemun Hao Ya B produces liquor with luster and bright reddish brown color. In a cup,the tea gives bright golden ring appeared near the edge of liquor to the cup. The golden ring is the sign that tea leaves are rich in theaflavins that is vital for good quality.

From my It’s All About the Leaf review, available at:

The first time I tried this, it was so smoky, bitter, and strong I couldn’t finish the glass. So I threw the sample into a drawer and tried to forget about it. Then, a few months later I found the sample again, and decided to brave trying it again.

This time, I decided to make sure I used an extremely short steeping time. And it helped, immensely. Now, the smoky flavors have done from trying to remove the skin from your nose to a more pleasant woodsy flavor. Like chewing on tree bark. The brew tastes very masculine and robust. Lots of tannin, lots of body.

I still don’t like it much. I feel like it’s a bit of a bully of a tea; pushy and strong and ready to hit you if you don’t treat it exactly right. Others may like it, especially if you’re a black coffee fan or like the stronger, darker flavors. Me, I’ll reach for something else.
