Tea Review 128 - Le Palais des Thés Qimen Hao Ya
Qimen Hao Ya
Le Palais des Thés
Every time I try another variety of the Chinese black tea known as Qimen, or Keemun, it moves up higher in my ranking of favorite teas. This Qimen Hao Ya from Le Palais des Thés is perhaps slightly less smoky than the last Hao Ya I reviewed, from Teavivre, but it was just as smooth and flavorful and I was just as sorry to see the sample packet dwindle.
Le Palais des Thés doesn't have a lot to say about this tea. Here is the info from their Web site:
Like Qimen Imperial, this tea grows on Huang Mountain. The tea from this excellent flush has a delicate, slightly chocolaty, taste. A subtle tea for the late afternoon.
