Tai Ping Hou Kui *****, 28 Jul 2010
by Dave B.

Another 5 star green tea from Jing Tea Shop. I received this two days ago and can't stop drinking it. Six or eight large leaves in a 5 ounce Dehua porcelain gaiwan with 160F water for about 90 seconds produces a very light, refreshing tea that is perfect for the hotter summer weather. Hotter water and/or longer infusion times give a thicker, fuller taste that is noticeably more vegetal. Either way, this tea is outstanding.
