Tai Ping Hou Kui is renowned for its “two knives and one pole” two straight leaves and one enormous bud with white hairs. The leaves are deep green in color with red veins. The tea shoots can be as long as 15 centimetres (5.9 in). They are plucked from the Shi Da cultivar, a large-leaf variety found in Anhui Province.

Unlike most green teas, Taiping Hou Kui does not undergo any rolling process. It is dried at once using a series of bamboo baskets heated at various temperatures and pressed on mesh screens. This unique process deactivates the enzymes and enhances the flavour profile. It is one of the most labour-intensive teas in the world.

The tea has been produced since the beginning of the 20th century and is grown around the famous yellow mountain range. It is sometimes referred to as one of Chinas most famous teas.

Bright, clear liquor with light yellow hue. Floral and lingering. Undertones of toasted bamboo leaf, grilled vegetable and honey.

Best brewed in a tall glass. Good for multiple infusions
