No other tea embodies the artistry of China’s teas than the famous Tai Ping Hou Kui (TPHK). A first grade leaf, our Green Monkey King, grows on a spring-fed farm at an elevation of 800 meters in the Huang Shan Mountains. At night, wild cymbidium orchids in the surrounding mountains lightly infuse the leaves with aroma. High grade TPHK is plucked and then the leaves are worked by hand in a wok-like pan reducing moisture and preparing for 4 additional steps to create its unique leaf shape. Our TPHK was plucked in the spring of 2022.
Large, flat, deep green leaves cup to a light orchid aroma, clear liquor, and a delightfully sweet vegetal taste, with a hint of apricot. While delicate, one will note its long finish.
