Description

This extremely harmonious Bai Mao Hou has a particularly creamy texture, with a good balance between the texture, flavours and aromas. With its cooked vegetable, mineral and marine notes, this green tea is, without a doubt, one of the best from Fujian province!

Relatively rare and much less well known than the legendary Long Jing, Bi Luo Chun or Tai Ping Hou Kui, Bai Mao Hou shares with the latter the distinction of being connected with monkeys! There are a number of Chinese teas with picturesque names recalling the fact that trained monkeys were occasionally used to reach the inaccessible summits of wild tea trees. Bai Mao Hou, however, owes it name (White Hairy Monkey) to the appearance of its leaf, which is covered in down resembling the long white hair that grows on the backs of old monkeys.
For the most part, this tea is produced in the province of Fujian, a region that specialises in white teas and jasmine teas. Manufactured from the famous Great White tea bushes, it is worthy of inclusion among the best new-season teas produced in China.

The Choice of Francois-Xavier Delmas

Bai Mao Hou is produced in Wu Yi Shan (Fujian), and is a well-known, rare tea. I look forward to it eagerly every year.
