Tai Ping Hou Kui
Tai Ping Hou Kui, or “Monkey King Tea from TaiPing County” in Chinese, has a distinct appearance, with long, flat leaves. Coming from AnHui Province, Eastern China, it was a golden medal winner in the 1915 World Expo. Beyond its beauty, the tea is delightfully complex with lingering sweetness and subtle melon fruity notes.
