Tai Ping Hou Kui is one of the Top 10 famous teas in China. Chinese President Hu Jintao gifted Russian President Vladimir Putin with it during Putin's visit from Russia in 2007. It also won a gold medal in a 1915 international exhibition in the United States. Because its picking standard is one bud with two half-matured leaves, it tastes stronger than other green teas. A complex production process — it is baked three times over charcoal —creates a unique appearance. Choice Tai Ping Hou Kui has a light red part in the middle of leaves. The tea is famous for its pleasing orchid aroma.
