Chinese Whole Leaf Green Tea

Regular price £5.49

A meticulously hand-crafted Chinese green tea that is made in same way and in the same place for over 3000 years.  This is the antithesis of bitter, mass produced green teas.

Made from the soft new leaves of spring it is also known as White Monkey Paw (Baimao Hou) after the resemblance of delicate, curled, downy buds it contains.

The clean, subtle flavours are an ideal tea to accompany food. It goes particularly well with East Asian food and we love it for breakfast with smoked salmon and poached eggs.
