Smooth and sumptuous with a dense, layered sweetness. The unique character and lingering finish of Golden Monkey is completely intoxicating. From the misty mountains for Fujian Province.
The exquisitely golden hued leaves of Golden Monkey are very striking. This natural color change occurs during the oxidation process; the tender leaf buds actually start out as a downy silver while on the bush (like Silver Needle white tea), but during their rolling, juices are squeezed out to develop deeper flavor. During oxidation, as these fragrant juices dry, they stain the leaves gold.
