Tai Ping Houkui (Dylis' Family)

$15.00

  • This tea is a rare treat, very difficult to find outside of China.  Genuine Taiping Houkui is produced in only 3 places in China.  At the Xu family farm in Huangshan, Biodynamic principles are applied in order to create a very special green tea that stands out from the rest of its already rare and coveted peers.  Limited quantities, available for the first time in North America this year.

    We recently sold the last of our stock.  Consider ordering more from Dylis if possible. Very popular.
