Commonly known as "Monkey Picked Green Tea" (although, no monkeys actually picked this Tea ?) Hou Kui is light and luscious in flavor, perfectly balanced, and well suited for Gong Fu or “Grandpa” styles of brewing. Also, this tea is special because of how neutral and easy it is to enjoy. For a green tea, it is very calming.
