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. While this is an excellent tea, we occasionally bring it’s superior, Golden Eyebrows Jin Jun Mei.
The leaf is beautiful and tippy. A characteristically bold tea with a full body.
