    Gathered in April from the Wuyi Mountains of Northern Fujian. Fully enzymatically oxidized gold-tipped leaves and buds, crafted by hand into the shape of a monkey's paw.

    Red amber color, light for a black tea, exceptionally smooth and tannin free with notes of oven-roasted sweet potato. The relatively low astringency and sweetness of this tea makes it the ideal everyday black tea. Ecocert-certified organic.

  • Brewing Guide

    Golden Monkey is one of the most forgiving everyday black teas we've tasted. It brews sweet without astringency and take well to even high temperature brewing.

    To accentuate its natural aromas, we suggest a mid-temperature brew, using 3.5 grams of tea leaves at 200 degrees for 2 minutes.

    The result should be sweet with just the right touch of complexity.
