Details

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

Japan Hojicha "Roasted" Green Tea

Our Japan Hojicha is made by roasting Bancha leaves. Bancha is derived from the lower leaves on the plant, which tend to have lower caffeine levels. The roasting turns its leaves to a chocolatey brown and reduces the amount of caffeine further, making it ideal to drink in the evening and after meals. The flavor is buttery, smooth, toasty and slightly smoky.

Steep Time: 1-3 min
Water Temp: 170°-212°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1
Infusions: 1-3
