Handmade Imperial Taiping Houkui Tea
- Product Review (submitted on September 3, 2015):
How can you possibly pass up a tea called “Monkey King?” This tea has it all! Actually though, I am very happy with this purchase. I ordered the tea online and it shipped without any problems—sometimes unusual with sites like this. The tea leaves themselves are beautiful and shapely, and they don’t take very long at all to steep, even if you’re looking for a stronger cup of tea. I like mine pretty bold, so I left the leaves in for about 5 minutes and even though the tea itself has a gentler flavor, I was very pleased with the body and richness. It has floral notes to it, which make it very refreshing. Even though I probably wouldn’t make this one an everyday beverage, I’m definitely keeping it in my rotation and I’ll be ordering more once mine runs out.
