Overview of HU-KWA Tea 1 lb. Tin

We have had the pleasure of supplying discriminating tea drinkers with this delicately smoked Lapsang Souchong tea for over a century. This long leaf tea from the island of Formosa has long been a tea connoisseur’s favorite. HU-KWA is a uniquely smoky and inviting tea that is not to be missed!

Houqua was a famous Hong Merchant from Canton, China, who became a symbol of integrity and quality trade between America and the Orient in the 19th century. Mark T. Wendell’s uncle, Richard Devens, traded goods with Houqua during this era and, years later, named his signature tea after him out of respect for his cultural significance. Almost 110 years later, our trademark tea is still our most popular offering!

Proper Brewing: In order to enjoy the unique flavor of HU-KWA we recommend allowing the tea to draw for five and one-half minutes. Stir, and let the tea settle for about one-half minute. Then decant. 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.

This is the tea I never allow myself to run out of. I just love to open the tin and inhale. I keep Hu-Kwa at home, at the office and in my baggie of travel essentials.
