Taiping Houkui 2019 is now available in our store

[2019.08.14] Posted By

2019 Taiping Houkui is available in our store. Taiping Houkui was listed as the Top Ten Famous Teas in China. It has been the well-known green tea of Anhui province since Qin dynasty. We have both standard and special tribute grade. The special tribute grade was grown at higher altitude and it gives longer lasting aftertaste.

2019 tea gives Orchid flower flavour

Talking about Chinese green tea, many people may know Long Jing or Bi Luo Chun. Taiping Houkui is not as famous as these two green teas. But there are many closet fans of Taiping Houkui because of its elegant flavour and taste.
This tea is made in the Yellow Mountain (Huang Shan) in Anhui province.

It is a very time consuming and labour-intensive work to produce Taiping Houkui; it is just like making pressed flower manually.

The tea taste is very gentle and soft. Its refreshing floral aroma reminds us of freshly made Japanese sencha or lightly fermented Taiwanese oolong. It is commonly said that the flavour of Taiping Houkui is like orchids. In fact, the flavour of this tea is deeply affected by the pan-frying and baking process. If more heat is used, it produces sweet flavour like syrup. If less heat is applied, Taiping Houkui develops floral flavour.
The 2018 batch was giving relatively sweet flavour, while the 2019 batch is giving very refreshing orchid flowers note. Usually, the tea flavour is influenced by the weather of the year and the moisture content of the fresh tealeaf too. This is the unique cup characteristic of tea in different years.
