Golden Monkey tea in bulk available for wholesale. Black tea from the Fujian province of China. Golden Monkey tea is hand-processed each spring with careful plucking of only one leaf and one bud. The name comes from its unique appearance: the leaves resemble monkey paws. Sweet and very 'nosy': savory roasted apples, cocoa and spice notes that linger as you sip. Rich, coating texture and very smooth, soft mouthfeel. Delicate, almost indistinguishable astringency.
This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes.
The Monkey King is one of China's most famous literary characters. Based on both Indian and Chinese culture, he’s most well-known for his role in the 16th century novel Journey to the West. Strong, fast, magical, and an excellent fighter, he's the inspiration for characters like Son Goku from Dragon Ball Z, Wukong from the popular video game League of Legends, and has inspired countless other spinoffs and stories, including The New Legends of Monkey in 2018. Legend says he gained immortality through heavenly wine instead of tea, but we still think he'd enjoy a cup.
