Product Description

Details

Procured from the same cultivar as Lapsang Souchong, this is definitely not the smoky tea those familiar with traditional Lapsang Souchong would expect. The plucking is from supple young growth, as you may be able to tell from the thin wiry leaves. The leaves are then processed in the classic Chinese fashion of rolling, oxidizing, and finalized by drying. The end result is a chocolate bouquet and flavor, with soft maltiness and a pleasant sweetness with little to no astringency.

Steep Time: 1-4 min
Water Temp: 200°-212°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1.5
Infusions: 1-3

China Monkey King "Taiping Houkui" Green Tea

Taiping Hou (monkey) Kui (king) ranks among China’s ten most famous teas and is commonly translated as “Monkey King.” The tip bud and young leaf sets are pan-fired, pressed flat between layers of cloth in a bamboo basket, and gently roasted over a charcoal fire to finish. The dried leaf has an intricate crisscrossing pattern left from the cloth. The flavor is smooth, sweet, and herbaceous with a delicate floral aroma.

Steep Time: 30 seconds-3 min
Water Temp: 170°
TSP per 8 oz.: 12 pieces
Infusions: 1-3
