White Monkey or Bai Mao Hou is a green tea that grows along the slopes of the Guangxi 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 sea-weedy aroma infused with a delicate sweetness and a slightly astringent finish.
