A hand-rolled style of one of China's best green teas. This spring, we visited the lakeside village that makes this special tea. It was great to see the ladies hand-roll the large leaves before they were flattened out in a press. Most Taiping Houkui is now made by machine, so it is nice to have this hand-rolled traditional green tea.
Please note: There is only one ounce per unit. We put it in a large bag to make sure the large leaves remain full.
Directions: Please put 2-3 grams (10–15 large leaves) in a heat-resistant glass or teapot, add 175º hot water, and steep for 3–4 minutes.
