Golden Monkey

Golden Monkey is a black tea that is absolutely exquisite and bounding with flavor. This Chinese tea beams with depth and layers. Hints of honey hit your taste buds and ends on a pine nut finish. The aroma is mouthwatering, creamy and velvety.

Golden Monkey tea is aptly named when there is a certain percentage of gold tips. Gold tips consist of the new buds on the tea plant which adds flavor and complexity to a tea. This tea is traditionally from Fujian and Yunnan provinces. This particular black tea comes from a 70 year old family owned farm in Fujian. This tea is so good, we decided to occasionally offer Golden Eyebrows Jin Jun Mei, another Golden Monkey style tea.

The leaf is beautiful and tippy. A characteristically bold tea with a full body.

Chinese black tea.
