What is Golden Monkey tea?
Golden Monkey tea is one of the most popular Chinese black teas. It originates from Fujian province in China. Fujian province is a home of many famous Chinese teas with the most black tea production being in Wuyi Mountains region.
What kind of tea is it?
Golden Monkey and other Fujian black teas are generally light-bodied, mellow, and floral with honey-sweet aroma and clean finish.
Golden Monkey is hand crafted in the traditional artisan way. Only the new young tea leaves and buds are used in the production. The buds are the most valuable, aromatic, and flavorful component here. Quality Golden Monkey is a “tippy tea” abundant in pale-golden tea tips. The tea gets its name from the funky appearance of its dry black leaves and golden buds: the color play is thought to resemble the monkey’s paws.
