Origin: Fujian Province, China
Description: Grown and processed in Northern Fujian, an area famous for its exceptional white teas, this Jin Hou black tea does not disappoint; what makes it so special is the tender age of the first fresh leaf and bud, and the care in its pluck. The tea is named for the shape of the leaves which resemble tiny monkey hands when oxidized. Once processed, the golden bud tips of this larger-leaf tea plant variety show prominently.
Tasting Notes: The nose of this cup is like a sweet cooked rice. The flavour is sweet and accessible, with a faint linger of fruit blossom and a gently astringent build. Though it will hold milk and honey, we suggest trying this tea on its own to truly experience its flavour.
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 90-100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.
