White Monkey, Baimao Hou, literally: "white-haired monkey" is a green tea made from the top two leaves and the bud of new season growth (late March / early April). Even though this is a green tea, the visual appearance, name, and flavor of this tea is often mistaken for being a white tea. That is a reason we placed this tea at White tea group. It originates from the Taimu Mountains in Fujian Province, China. These delicate leaves are gently and gingerly steamed and dried. The dried leaf is said to look like that of a white-haired monkey's paw. The leaves still show the "hairy down" on them which indicates that these leaves were plucked very early in the morning and within the first two weeks of the new season of growth. 

Our tea is hand worked at the day of picking it up from the bushes so is extremely fresh. It gives a gentle, golden-green, almost yellow warm colour of soup with lightly sweetish, aromatic brew with flourish tones. 


Ingredients: 100% White Monkey China tea 

Classic: 2 to 3 grams, 200 mills of water at around 75 C degrees, 2 to 3 minutes depend on preferences.

Subsequent: 4 to 5 grams of tea, 80 to 100 mills 75 C degrees water, first brewing up to 30 second and each next longer about 20 second or even less. Leaves will infuse liquid  with each brewing with different layers of taste. We recommend up to 5 repetitions.

The tea can be brewed very differently and there are many combinations that yield interesting results, but it is important to remember it is technicaly green tea, so do not, please, brew it using too high temperature of water. Always less than 75 C degrees. It will get out the sweetness and aroma of the tea without any bitterness.

Tea bag: as this leaves required more room to open and fully infuse tea soup we provide this tea just with our Eco-Friendly Single Size one cup tea bag of same White Monkey Tea. 

And, please, remember: all our teabags are in 100% compostable. Make your own compost.
