Taiping Hou (monkey) Kui (king) ranks among China's ten most famous teas and is commonly translated as "Monkey King." The tip bud and young leaf sets are pan-fired, pressed flat between layers of cloth in a bamboo basket, and gently roasted over a charcoal fire to finish. The dried leaf has an intricate crisscrossing pattern left from the cloth. The flavor is smooth, sweet, and herbaceous with a delicate floral aroma.
