In the tea gardens in the WuYi Mountains, towards the end of March at the beginning of the new season's tea growth, the top two leaves and bud are picked from the tea bushes.

The tea leaves still have the 'hairy white down' on them and when steamed and dried they become a truly superb green tea, known as White Monkey Paw. This tea gained it's name as the dry leaf appearance is said to resemble the paw of a white haired monkey.
