White Monkey


E 518

Bai Hou, White Monkey - A tea of characteristic look and excellent taste, it's coming from Fujian. Among the grey-green crinkly leaves there's a lot of white downy tips to find. This tea gives a gentle, lightly sweetish, aromatic brew with flourish tones and coloured light-green, almost yellow. Some people malindicate this tea as white tea (partly because of the name White Monkey, partly of its look). However, this tea is ranked among green teas, because it hasn't come through the process of particular fermentation while the white teas have.
