Original green tea of ​​unusual shape.

The name Tai Ping Hou Kui (Chinese: 太平猴魁) translates to "Taiping Monkey Leader". Handmade tea: tea flushes are laid out by hand on a special mesh and placed under a press. This labor-intensive process gives the tea its recognizable shape.

Aroma: bright, honey, with a characteristic note of orchid.

Taste: thick, dense, brothy, but soft and without astringency. Pleasant sweet aftertaste.

Effect: refreshing, tonic.

Harvesting: first harvest, spring 2024, Anhui Province, China.

How to brew: do not break the tea leaves! If they do not fit in the brewing container, simply fill them with hot water. They will soften like spaghetti and fit completely into the bowl. We recommend brewing in a tall glass glass or porcelain gaiwan. The water should be cooled to 70–80 °C. Through the glass you can admire the beautiful dance of long tea leaves in the water.
