Product Description

Tea DocentTea Docent says ”Chinese Tribute Tea is one of the Seven Necessities of Life! You will be allured by the intriguing, mysterious, always delicious liquor that has captivated so much of the world for thoughans of years. Traditional Chinese Medicine tells us tea is a magical, medical plant that promotes vitality, controls weight and boosts immunity

A special processing technique creates a woven pattern of intricate crisscrossing on the dry leaves. Two leaves and a single bud are pan-fired then pressed flat between layers of cloth in a bamboo basket for another firing before being spread out to cool. The pattern resulting on the leaf is from the fabric used. There are many legends regarding the spirit of the monkey in this tea growing region, which has rain and fog all year long. Orchids grow wild within the tea plants which is believed to be the source of the exquisite fragrance. Maybe it is true that the compassion of a tea farmer shown to the monkeys was repaid with wonderful and unique tea or maybe it is the unusual growing and processing techniques. Either way, the end result is a tea which is classified as a Tribute Tea in China and continues to win many awards. Now enjoyed in the west by only those few who either by luck or legend discovers it. Hou Kui means Monkey King, or Best Monkey.."
