Taiping Houkui belongs to the first-class of dried green tea. It is produced in high mountain tea plantations at the areas of Houkeng in ancient Taiping County (Today's Huangshan District of Huangshan City). The tealeaves have straight shapes with two fusiform ends, and the color is olive green. When soaked into hot water, the tealeaves open out like flowers, the tea water is clear and green, the smell is fragrant, and the taste is sweet. It gets a reputation that "one will be drunk by the fragrant smell of Houkui even one hundred miles away".
