Qu Hao is one of three famous Wu Yi green teas together with Jin Mei and Xue Ya. Wu Yi Moutain in Fujian Province is famous for its rocky terrain, fresh air and many world renown oolong tea varieties; but long before oolong teas were produced there, it was actually famous for its green teas!
Qu Hao is an aromatic deep emerald colored leaf that is pan fired and curled into a small to medium sized leaf. It is a "wild" tasting green tea, which is meant as a compliment to this bold tasting varietal- not descriptive of the trees it was harvested from. It has a similarity in strength and body to some Japanese green teas, and is slightly astringent. Its tea liquor is bright and strong, with a flowery, sweet and strong aftertaste.
For the best tea drinking experience, we recommend using a gaiwan and enjoying multiple infusions.
