Monkey Picked Black Tea

$ 13.00


From the high elevations and cool mists of China's Fujian Province.

This legendary tea owes its name to an old & wonderful tradition. Long ago, trained monkeys scaled cliffs to reach the precarious plantings, selecting the finest tea buds, and hiding them in their vests.  Fermentation turns the tea leaves golden yellow. When brewed, the tea becomes a deep golden brown (almost the color of a monkey!) yielding a smokey, sweet fruit flavor. 4 oz. tin.
