Chinese Green Teas
Tai Ping Hou Kui Green Tea - has been selected as one of the Top Ten Teas in China. It is also a historically reputed tea since the Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1912). It is produced from the Hou-keng areas at Huang-shan City of Anhui Province.
Rainflower Needles Green Tea - As one of the Ten Famous Teas in China, Yu Hua Tea appears green and round and is covered with white hair, and is as tight and straight as the pine needle. The name Yu Hua means "Rain Flower," and it is so called because the tea leaves are harvested from within the Rain Flower Terrace area.
White Monkey Green - aka "Bai Mao Hou" is a green tea that grows along the slopes of the Taimu mountains in the Fujian province of China. The young leaves and unopened buds are carefully gathered and processed exclusively by hand. The result is a tea that appears intricately woven with large and beautiful white tips looking like white-haired monkey's paws, hence the name. It produces a warm colored cup, fresh and subtly seaweedy aroma infused with delicate sweetness and a slightly dry finish.
Fujian Hairpoint Green - A fine tea from one of China's premiere green tea producing regions, Fujian Hairpoint features attractive large leaves and plentiful silver tips which brew up to a pretty light yellow infusion in the cup.
Pilochun Premium - Characterized by Spiral tips with silver-white hairs, this tea resembles a White but it IS actually a Green. When the Tea leaves are still warm after de-enzyming, small mounds are rolled by hand in three stages. The delicate, pliable leaves are thus transformed into the classic spiral shape.
Imperial Gunpowder-Top Grade - as the name implies, is made up of leaves hand-rolled into tiny pellets resembling gunpowder. The Top grade is rolled into small pellets - about 1/4 inch diameter. It has a rich flavor, balanced pungency, and the smoky tones one would expect from a quality gunpowder.
Mao-Feng - a green tea produced in the Fujian province of China. It is one of the most common, everyday green teas in China. Medium-bodied, it is not as grassy as some other green teas (such as Dragonwell or Sencha). It is able to be steeped several times, is good hot or iced and is a good base for many green-tea blends and flavors.
