Golden Monkey


Black tea with hints of honey and pine nuts, bold and sweet. Read the description below to learn more about this black tea.


Golden Monkey is a black tea that is 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 twisted and tippy. A characteristically bold tea with a full body.

Chinese black tea.

I've been going to Lake Missoula Tea Company for years, and recently have had the privilege of putting some of their tea in my store. The quality of the tea is fantastic, and the blends are delightful. I have also attended one of their tasting / learning events and it was great. I highly recommend their downtown store for meeting with friends, family or even just for a nice place to go and have a cup of perfectly brewed tea.

Amazing variety great prices and they'll brew top shelf teas you may be reluctant to buy before trying for a dollar more. Great selection for Missoula. Friendly knowledgeable staff and beautiful tea sets and accessories

Best store in Montana possibly in all of the United States. I don't know. This is the first Gong Fu tea shop I've ever been to. I came in for a matcha whisk because I donated mine to a museum. Before I left a random customer who was introduced to me as a regular bought me tea. I hugged him which isn't something I normally do. But I was incredibly thankful. Then the man behind the counter gave me a free sample. I went in looking for a simple tool and left with tea and a happy spirit. I am looking forward to making it back as soon as possible! I loved it. I think it will always hold a special place in my blood pumping organ.

We are major tea snobs and I was absolutely delighted by this store. There are the usual suspects as well as shelves of unique, hand-picked teas. Highly recommend the Golden Snail :) It was really special being able to try whatever tea I wanted before buying. I'm looking forward to subscribing to their tea club. I would love to come back: everything was delicious.

Amazing tea! Beyond my expectations and well worth the stop! Delightful service and amazing blends! If you are in the area I would highly recognize them. I will be ordering blends online-they are so good!
