Found in the Wuyi Mountains in China, this green tea is picked only a few days early in Spring, keeping the white hairs common on white teas. Some notice that even though White Monkey Paw looks like it should be a white tea, it gives a recognizable green tea taste with a royal pale green liquor.
This has become a favorite to those who are looking for a more mellow, full, warming green tea with a lingering sweetness that is just noticeable.

It’s been a while since I’ve had a Chinese green so this was a bit shocking to my palate, especially because this seems like a pretty bold Chinese green – I just wasn’t prepared for it! It’s very fresh and vibrant tasting – very grass/hay tasting with a spike of something sharp that I sometimes read as mineral-y and sometimes read as nutty. Even reading that note as mineral-y, this still isn’t briny/salty which is a note I get from a lot of Chinese greens. Instead, it’s more sweet with almost a fruity taste to it. It has lots of flavors going on and has a great fresh and bold taste (for a Chinese green). Quite lovely! Thanks so much to TeaEqualsBliss for sharing this one with me!
Maybe i’ve been brewing this one wrong (although i’ve been following the printed instructions), but this to me is undoubtedly the weakest tea in the Utopian lineup. There’s an overpowering smoke note to this tea, and a set of flavors i can’t even fully identify (Stone fruit, perhaps?) buried within it. But, there’s no balance to the flavor of this tea, it simply tastes off.
Maybe I got a bad bag? Hard to say
