Style: Green

Origin: Fujian Province, China

Description: White Monkey, also known as Bai Mao Hou, is a green tea made traditionally with the first two leaves and the bud of the tea plant. White Monkey is produced in the Wuyi Mountains in the North of Fujian province. The soft, downy white appearance of the buds, reminiscent of the soft fur on the hands of a monkey, inspired this tea’s name. These long, full eaves slowly unfurl during the steep, changing the cup to a crystal clear and delicate, nearly pink tone of ivory green.

Tasting Notes: A gentle crispness unfolds with the tea leaves with a subtle floral perfume. The tangible astringency sits mid-tongue, balanced with a natural green sweetness that lingers pleasantly long after the cup is finished.  

Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 90ºC water. steep 3 minutes.

Certified Organic

Tea cultivation and processing originated in China about 5,000 years ago, and while they carry on a rich and ancient tradition of producing high-quality teas of all styles, their green varieties are truly beyond comparison. The flavour profiles, aromas, and processing techniques from each tea-growing region vary tremendously. Some become silky and smooth, while some become powerful and astringent. Whether for casual daily drinking, or for special moments of ceremony and contemplation, Chinese green teas truly nurture the soul.
The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
