Its Making process

making process

The making process is not really complicated and differs with different companies although most of them use the oxidation process which involves heating of the tea. The reason why Keemun Hao Ya A is different between the processing companies is that all companies claim to be the best and have to add extra flavors and apparently claim a secret ingredient is the contributor of its uniqueness. The main process itself involves withering the harvested tea leaves and buds and allowing them to dry and lose their water. The dried buds and leaves of Keemun Hao Ya A are then rolled and twisted and this is one of its unique features. The rolling process is what differentiates flavor and production of different companies. This is because during the rolling each company inserts a hidden secret ingredient in twisted dry leaves and buds. After twisting and rolling the leaves are then left to oxidize and turn black. This is where the black tea term comes from.

How to Steep it?

In brewing the tea, different companies have a slightly different of brewing. For the Teavivre Company, they use the purple tea set and this involves mixing the tea with water and heating it for around 3 minutes up to almost the boiling point. The Stash Company, on the other hand, uses up to 5 minutes to brew the tea. It all depends on the taste of the customer. This tea experts recommend heating the tea in water for a longer time so as to acquire the best version of the black tea. Some experts go ahead and recommend the use of old and traditional Chinese vessels to acquire the best of the Keemun Hao Ya A.

In conclusion, I can say that Keemun tea has four varieties but the Keemun Hao Ya A grade is preferred to the other three Keemun grades because of it of a higher grade than the others. Secondly, it is affordable and pocket-friendly. The taste also sets Keemun Hao Ya A at a higher level of black tea production.
