Tea: Whole Leaf Green, Direct trade
Origin: Funding, Fujian Province, China Made from the soft new leaves of spring it is also known as White Monkey Paw (Baimao Hou).
Made from the soft new leaves of spring it is also known as White Monkey Paw (Baimao Hou).
Made from the soft new leaves of spring it is also known as White Monkey Paw (Baimao Hou) after the resemblance of the delicate, curled, white, downy buds it contains to the curled paw of a little monkey.
The leaves are pan fired as quickly as possible after plucking. Within hours they are brought to large very hot metal bowls. The fresh leaf is gently rolled inside the hot pans so that every part of the leaf is exposed to the heat - sealing in the fresh green flavours.
The clean, subtle flavours are an ideal tea to accompany food. It goes particularly well with savoury food and we love it for breakfast with smoked salmon and poached or scrambled eggs.
Not just one infusion
Our rare teas are of such high quality that the same leaves can be infused several times. Each time you infuse the tea different subtleties of the delicate flavours will be released.
It is essential that the tea leaves are not left to stew once they have been infused; straining the tea completely between infusions will prevent the leaves from becoming bitter - it's akin to cooking a steak to perfection and then leaving it in the frying pan.
In China it is widely believed that the second or third infusion of fine tea is the best.
Cost per cup is $0.58, based on 2 g tea and two infusions.
Unique Terroir: The Rare Tea Company travels the world in search of unique tea gardens and the skilled men and woman who craft the finest tea – where each harvest captures the most delicious flavours that their particular corner of the world can offer.
Direct Trade: The Rare Tea Company has been working directly with their farmers since 2004, building long-term relationships. RTC don’t buy from brokers, middle-men or commodity markets. RTC keeps the value of their tea with the people who make it.
Sustainability: The Rare Tea Company supports the 3 pillars of sustainability: environmental, economic and social. Their teas are grown without pesticides and herbicides. No bags with bleaches, glues and micro-plastics that waste precious resources for single use.
The Rare Charity: When Henrietta Lovell, the founder of Rare Tea Company, visited Satemwa, she saw the possibility of creating social change. She decided to re-invest a percentage of Rare Tea’s annual revenue directly back into the community. Henrietta asked the workers on the Estate where they would most like to see change, and they gave her a clear and unanimous answer: education for our children. Rare Charity was founded to respond to this need.
