Taiping Hou Kui are relatively recent teas as they have been developed for the 1915 Univeral Expo, but they have quickly become one of the most iconic and recognizable tea of China. Capitalizing on the exceptional size and aroma capacities of the leaves of a local varietal of tea trees growing around Taiping Lake, the hand rolling, pressing between two sieves and drying above bamboo charcoal embers provides long regular saber-shaped leaves marked by a fine grid pattern.

This complex process for a green tea bring the characteristics orchid fragrance of the Taiping Houkui, and this aromatic pattern rare among green tea has give birth to numerous legends.

Our selection is a real handmade tea, what is rare among Taiping Houkui proposed in the West.

With its long well-shaped leaves, its fine grid pattern imprinted by the sieves and its floral aroma,the dried leaves are real artwork, who will dance in the glass cup after pouring hot water.

It is a very fresh tea, long and round, with typical fragrances of Taiping Houkui; between mountain graze lands after the rain and an orchid greenhouse.
