“Very smooth and drinkable, but doesn’t have much in the flavor department. Typical leafiness and a bit of butter on the tongue. Having some right now, notice that the astringency is fairly low, but...” Read full tasting note
“I guess I like monkeys because I’m wild for this tea! This is the first time I’ve heard of it too. Probably the best green tea I’ve ever had and I’ve had a few.” Read full tasting note
“Yummy! I just recently heard of this company and this is the first tea of theirs I’ve tried. For someone who usually doesn’t go for green tea, this one is so smooth and easy on my stomach...” Read full tasting note
“Another one of my favorite teas. I keep exploring other greens then coming back to White Monkey Paw (Bai Mao Hou). I like to see if there’s any greens that I could possibly like more, but White...” Read full tasting note


White Monkey Paw is a green tea made from the very young leaves and bud of new season growth. It originates from the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian Province, China. With the pride of an Italian chef creating extra long spaghetti noodles, the tea leaves are very carefully hand picked with an artistic process to preserve the tea leaf form and then delicately steamed and dried. These perfect, prized tea leaves in our California Tea House collection resemble a monkey’s paw, hence the name.

Similar to Silver Needle white tea, the ‘down’ on the leaves gives the leaves a silver appearance and indicates that these leaves were plucked very early in the morning and within the first two weeks of growth.
