Taiping Hou Kui, Hou Kui, Monkey King, 猴魁
Hou Kui is produced in the AnHui Province of China, from the northern hills of the Yellow Mountain (Huang Shan) range. The local conditions are ideal for green tea cultivation: relatively cool temperatures, a long period of fog cover and rich soil conditions.
The recorded production history of Hou Kui green tea in China is about 1000 years, beginning at around 1900. Among the most popular premium Chinese green teas, Hou Kui's leaves are much larger compared to others. Its other characteristics include: strong, sharp, straight and flat leaves; delicately rich/deep green in colour; leaves covered with a white down (an indication of the tenderness of the young leaves); a tea brew which is bright and light green with an elegant fragrance of orchid and refreshing green tea taste.
Taiping Hou Kui was a golden award winning product during the 1915 Panama World's Trade Fair.
We offer 1 packaging size for Hou Kui loose leaf green tea - 50gms.
