Lu Mao Hou  - Green Monkey -  is a very popular green tea from Fujian province. The dark green, carefully processed leaves with number of silvery tips are skilfully coiled into spiral bobbles. Colour of the leaves is dark green with high rate of white downy tips, as the word "Mao" (downy) in the Chinese name of the tea suggests. The varietal that makes Green Monkey is a slow growing, prized bush that grows at higher elevations.  Locally known as "Monkey" tea, this green "fresh tea" is grown wild (no rows, no cultivation) and then made to local custom with little processing of the leaf. The leaf is wok-fired, loosely rolled and processed to the point where the natural aromas and tastes are preserved and readied for consumption. The natural strength of the varietal comes through as a result in its taste. Tea leaves smell of hazelnuts, the brew is of honey yellow-green colour and of freshy, sparkling flavour with a long floral aftertaste.
