Review by S. Forbes
Overall Character
This is the best Lapsang available on the market in my opinion. I have tried many of them both loose and bagged. It has a deep smoky aroma and makes an attractive and delicious cup of tea time after time. I go through a large bag each month and only purchase from Mark T Wendell. Their shipping is prompt and the product is always fresh. This is an easy 5 cup review. Original Review Submitted: 6/10/12 (Posted on 10/26/2017)
Review by L. Orans
Overall Character
When he returned from service in China in World War II, my uncle had become a devotee of fine Chinese teas. His favorite and almost exclusive blend was Lapsang Souchong and I remember clearly the can of Hu-Kwa ever present in his kitchen. He introduced me to it when I was in my teens and I too became a devotee of Hu-Kwa. I think of him whenever I brew the tea and especially when I introduce it to a friend. I continue a tradition of almost 70 years in my family with this magnificent tea.

HU-KWA Tea - 8 oz. Refill Bag

The 8 oz. Refill Bag packaging option can be used to refill an existing tin. Since it is made of high barrier foil with an attractive matte black finish, it can stand alone for tea storage.

Brewing Suggestions

In order to enjoy the unique flavor of your HU-KWA Tea, we recommend brewing using the instructions perfected by Mr. Wendell! Firstly, bring cold, filtered water to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Allow your HU-KWA Tea to steep for 5-5 ½ minutes. Stir, and let the tea settle for about one-half minute. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. HU-KWA Tea is best appreciated when drunk clear. Milk or too much sugar compromises its delicate flavor. A little cream goes well but sugar should be used sparingly.
