Most teas in our collections are “artisan” teas made with intense craftsmanship, but we want also to offer choices that are price competitive yet still in respectable quality. Introducing Keemun FOP, produced by a Chinese government recognised national showcase factory for classic Keemun standards. Everything at top quality level of the “Keemun” name, as known in the mass market. Great for breakfast, afternoon tea or your carrot cake party, with milk or not, like a good old fashioned flowery orange pekoe should be.
Fresh, sweet aroma with floral notes and hints of plums and prune. Light undertone of smokiness. Lively sweet infusion with a distinctive orange* peel accent and notes also of plums and prune. Refreshing, fruity sweet aftertaste.
This is a good tea to enjoy plain. Keep infusion time relatively shorter, between 1 to 6 minutes, for its optimum taste. Use an infuser or an infuser bag for easily separating the tealeaves from the tea liquor, and for easier cleaning. Do not blanch the leaves prior to infusion, but preheat the infusion vessel well. Use a higher tealeaves to water ratio for a fuller body if you need it strong for adding sugar or milk.
*Orange Pekoe is the name of a grading system and there has been no evidence linking between that name and this taste character. As to why the word orange is in the name, there are a few theories. The most convincing one is that it is attributed to the House of Orange-Nassau, the ruling family of the Netherlands/Belgium when the country was the most important tea trader in Europe.
Huangshan Maofeng green tea is a must-have souvenir when one visits Huangshan. However, even if you know the way to real teashops rather than tourist traps, a pack of such quality as Tea Hong's Cuiyu would come at a high price. That is why this pleasant tasting and slightly sweet baked green tea is a most popular item not only for our retail, but also export. To maintain consistent high quality, we employ only harvest before the lunar almanac demarkation of “guyu” — the first rain for seeding, around early to mid-April. "Yuqian" — before the rain — is the traditional term for this.Net weight: 35 g (1.2 oz) in Kraft-alu packSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSave
A great showcase for why the name of the tea came about centuries ago, great discipline in the use of fire distinguishes Cassia Extraordinaire from most other Wuyi varieties with a supple, deliciously floral and delicate scent balanced with a full, lively body. This is Wuyi Cassia at its best.
Through years of researches a fine cultivar carrying the best traits of all the finest Wuyi natural cultivars is now mature and producing. Introducing Tea Hong’s Sacred Lily. Perhaps the most beautiful of all Wuyi oolongs. Grown deep in the steep mountains away from the touristy spots and masterfully processed for subtlety, complexity, and smoothness in taste. A tea that no true oolong connoisseur should miss.
Produced using a Phoenix native cultivar Da Baiye ( i.e. Big White Leaf ), and has certain taste similarity as the rarer Song Cultivar Huangzhi Xiang, this tea is popular amongst traders for use as a substitute for the pricier label. Tea Hong’s top quality selection, Big White is certainly a good demonstration of how this tea can fool the lesser experienced connoisseurs. That said, however, the trained tongue can certainly tell it is a fine tea on its own for the uniqueness in its floral aroma, silky texture and soft, smooth body.Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
