Two Tai Ping Hou Kui green
Jing Tea Shop
Wing Hop Fung
Head to head comparison of an inexpensive version from Wing Hop Fung,
and a fancier grade from Jing Tea Shop.
2 grams of leaf: Wing Hop Fung on the left, and Jing Tea Shop on
Jing's version has larger, more intact leaves, and the color is
brighter and fresher
I used 2 grams of tea
in gaiwans with about two and half ounces (75mL) of water at 160-165
degrees per infusion, and infusions times of 45 seconds, 1 minute, 1
minute, and 90 seconds.
Even though the leaves are quite long, they soften enough to fit in the
The Jing tea is not only lighter in color of liquor and leaf, but
cleaner and lighter in flavor, with lemon notes amid the sweet pea
vegetal flavors. There is a bit more spiciness in the WHF
version, probably a bit of astringency coming out. This was
consistent through all of the infusions, the greater refinement and
higher quality of the Jing tea being obvious.
