Tai Ping Hou Kui, means Monkey King Green Tea. This tea is one of the most luxurious tea from China. It is very healthy for your skin and body. It is the antioxidant that helps protect your skin from the harmful effects of free radicals, which cause wrinkling and skin aging. Drinking green tea is an effective and organic way to cure acne. Regular consumption of at least 3 cups of green tea per day will treat acne by improving insulin resistance, and reducing the levels of hormones.

How to brew it? We also say drinking tea is as much science as art. Don't be afraid to try new way to suit your taste and style. For this tea, we suggest the water should be at 160-170F Apply 3-4 g Monkey King tea leaves to an uncovered ceramic teapot or tall heat-proof glass like picture above, add 6 fl. oz. of hot water and brew for one to three minutes. Monkey King Green Tea can generally be brewed for up to 3 times. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.
Monkey King (in Chinese Tai Ping Hou Kui) is a native to the regions near Yellow Mountain in Anhui Province, an area which produces other famous variety of green teas, like Huang Shan Mao Feng and Legendary Liu An Melon Seed. We work with a farmer directly to obtain the best quality teas (above picture is where our tea came from).
Tea Plantation visiting & Store hour.
Many people had asked me how we decided to come up with new teas. To be honest, my husband and I listen to you. We hear about your concern about health, wellness, what you like and don't like. We are not a company that check off the list from vendors to obtain our teas; we carefully listen to what customers want. This is why we are visiting tea plantations. As a result, my husband will stay at the tea shop while I travel to the Northern Thailand.
One of our goals this year is to grow our selection on Herbal Tea. Of course, I will also visit Tea plantations (Tea as of Camellia Sinensis, a scientific name of tea tree) and other herbal tea plantations such as Chrysanthemum and Sacha Inchi. The reason to visit is to ensure that we get high quality products and they are organically grown.
I hope to bring back teas and herbal teas to share with our communities. My husband will need to take care of our 2 young children and look after the shop. For the week of 3/12 and 3/19, we will be opened only on Saturday from 9-3pm on 3/17 and 3/24. Sorry for the inconvenience.
