White Monkey Paw
mood: Detox    |    avg rating: 4.9 |    reviews: 9

White Monkey Paw, also known as Bai Mao Hou, is a green tea made from the very young leaves and bud of new season growth. It originates from the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian Province, China.  With the pride of an Italian chef creating extra long spaghetti noodles, the tea leaves are very carefully hand picked with an artistic process to preserve the tea leaf form and then delicately steamed and dried.  These perfect, prized tea leaves in our California Tea House collection resemble a monkey's paw, hence the name.

Similar to Silver Needle white tea, the 'down' on the leaves gives the leaves a silver appearance and indicates that these leaves were plucked very early in the morning and within the first two weeks of growth.  Enjoy the art of one of our finest green teas with 1 heaping teaspoon of tea to each cup of filtered or mineral water.  Steep under 2-3 minutes in just under boiling water, or about 180o F.
