Tea Review: Premium Tai Ping Hou Kui Green Tea (Teavivre)

Premium Tai Ping Hou Kui Green Tea
Type: Green
Origin: China, Anhui Province, Huangshan, Xinming County, Houkeng
Product Description: Tai Ping Hou Kui is a fabulous green tea from Anhui with uniquely-shaped, flat leaves, marking it much different from other green teas - and, also, it is one of China’s top ten teas. Our tea comes from the village of Houkeng, the origin place of Tai Ping Hou Kui.

Early in 1915, Tai Ping Hou Kui tea won the golden award in the Panama Pacific International Exposition, and in 1955 it earned its status as one of China’s top ten most famous teas.

Temperature: 175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaves have a mellow sweet green aroma.

The pale green infusion has a sweet and nutty green aroma with a fresh green and lightly nutty taste and a dry finish.

A two minute initial infusion provided the best results with astringency just beginning to develop while subsequent infusion were much more forgiving and provided their best results at three to four minutes.  

This tea was purchased by me.
