Taiping Hou Kui is a mysterious green tea as much by the place where it comes from, on the edge of a lake in the middle of the Yellow Mountains range, as by the appearance of its long and flattened leaves. Although you can brew it normally, the best technique to take full advantage of this green tea will be to put some of its leaves in a large glass where you will then pour hot water: they will brew slowly and will reveal their sweet delicate fragrance of fresh bamboo shoot, lamb's lettuce, orchid and spring sap. Refreshing and calming, this tea, although little known in the West, is one of the top 5 mythical Chinese green teas! To discover!
