2022 Taiping Houkui 太平猴魁, Unbroken loose-leaf
Long emerald leaves that dance in the warm water, are a sight for sore eyes. This green tea from Taiping, Anhui Province, has long and unbroken leaves, whose shape is due to the special cultivar and the skilled artisan that hand-processed them. The new harvest has a surprising fruity aroma, with an intense balsamic aftertaste that refreshes the whole body.
It can be brewed in a gaiwan, patiently waiting for the dry leaves to warm up and soften, falling delicately at the bottom of the teapot.
Otherwise, they can be infused directly in a long glass cup, sipping the clear and refreshing liquor while the leaves continue the infusion. They can be infused many times, savoring the different notes of each brew.
