About three weeks a year, leaves of a special cultivar, up to 15 cm long, can be picked in the Huangshan mountains. The unusual Green tea was first created by Wang Kui Chen in the Tai Ping region. Velvety, flattering aroma reminiscent of orchids. Definitely a rare and unique!
The biggest difference compared to other Green teas lays in the appearance. The large leaves are well preserved in structure, as they are carefully heated and then pressed. A soft taste and floral fragrance that reminiscent of orchids is typical for Tai Ping Hou Kui.
11 g tea leaves (due to the large sized leaves a Tealamass measurement is not possible) per 1 liter filtered water, boiled and cooled to 80 °C/176 °F. Allow to brew 2 min
