    • Bai Mao HouTea Varietal

    Bai Mao Hou (白毛猴) refers to the white down on the underside of this varietal’s leaves in early spring. Master Zhang’s 30+ hour processing technique on this traditionally finished tea brings out an overwhelming creamy nutty desert-like flavor, accented by roasted chestnut and white chocolate. This varietal is one of the most creamy, dessert-like teas Master Zhang cultivates.


  • 'The process of making oolong is bringing the tea back and forth between withered and alive... the process of bringing it back from the brink eliminates bitterness and astringency'
