White Monkey | Bai Mao Hou

147 Kč

Our White Monkey comes from Tongren, a small city known as the "gateway to eastern Guizhou". You can find it in the junction of Guizhou Province and Hunan Province. Early in the morning within the first two weeks of the new season's tea growth, around late March time, the top two leaves and bud are carefully plucked from the bushes. The tea leaves still have the 'hairy down' on them and when gently steamed and dried they become a truly superb green tea. A pale infusion offers a pure, delicate, velvety flavour. You can enjoy a truly delicate taste with a slight trace of honey notes. The tangible astringency sits mid-tongue, balanced with a natural green sweetness that lingers pleasantly long after the cup is finished.

Today the name is actually a definition of a specific tea style than a name of a specific tea.
