White Monkey Paw Tea

White Monkey Paw Tea
Grown at elevations of 2500-5000 feet in the Wu Yi Mountains in the Fujian Province of China, White Monkey Paw is a delicate green tea, hand made from the first two leaves and the bud of new season growth. Plucked in the morning and within the first two weeks of the new season, the leaves retain their downy white hair, a sign of delicate sweetness. The leaves are gently steamed and then dried, so the end result is a very pale green tea (tending white) with a sweet, smooth, intense flavor. The dry appearance of the leaf is said to resemble a monkey's paw. Infuse 7-10 leaves per cup in water that is 180 degrees for about 3 minutes. Do not remove the leaves from the cup. Add more water as needed for 3 or more infusions.

Average Customer Rating

Reviewer: Phillip 09/11/2012
This tea ruined other green tea for me. Anything else now leaves me disappointed. This tea is delicate, but flavorful and subtly sweet. Take the time to brew this correctly and you'll be rewarded with 4-5 excellent brews. It's vary difficult to measure by volume. Either count a number of leaves as recommended or use 2.0 grams per 6 to 8 oz.
