Imperial Golden Monkey

China

This is a shining example of a beautiful, fresh harvest black tea from Fu'An County. Known as 'Golden Monkey', this tea gets its name from the distinctive wiry golden leaves that resemble the claws of high mountain macaques. It is often believed that the term 'monkey' is used describe high quality teas that grow so high up in the tree that only monkeys can reach them.

Harvested every spring, this tea follows the strict plucking standard of 1 bud and 1 leaf. The bud produces a very sweet flavour profile and the leaf adds a malty, cocoa taste with almost no astringency. 

A perfect cup every time, this tea is ideal for both the seasoned tea enthusiast and those starting their journey into the exciting world of high quality teas.
