A very long time ago, there lived in the magnificent mountains of Huang Shan a monkey couple and their baby. One day, the intrepid little monkey went out to explore the surrounding area but, caught in a thick fog, lost his way. Worried, his father set out to find him. Alas, after searching for several days in vain, the old monkey dropped from exhaustion into a ditch close to Taiping County.

An old man who used to gather wild tea in the area came across the monkey's body. Saddened by this gruesome find, he buried the monkey at the foot of the mountain and, to honor him, planted a few tea trees and other flowering plants- As he was leaving the place he heard a voice say, "Sir, I will repay you for what you have done.," The man turned around but saw no one.

The following spring, the man returned to the mountain to harvest the leaves of the tea trees he had planted there and, to his great surprise, saw that the mountain was covered in them. That was when he heard the voice again, "I give you these tea trees so that you may live well by cultivating them." Frightened at first by the strange voice, the man then remembered the monkey he had buried at this very spot, and he understood that it was his spirit he had heard. To commemorate this unexpected gift, he named the hill Hou Gang (“monkey hill”) and the tea Hou Cha ("monkey tea"). And as the tea was of exceptional quality, the name became Hou Kui (kui meaning "the first" or "the best").

On a more historic note, Tai Ping Hou Kui has been cultivated in the region of Taiping (Anhui Province) since the Ming dynasty. Harvested exclusively for emperors under the Qing dynasty, Tai Ping Hou Kui tea was awarded the title "King of Tea" at the 2004 China Tea Exhibition.
