Golden Monkey Organic China Black Tea 2 lbs
One of the classic Panyang congou teas from the Fujian province of China. Only certain tea plant varietals can produce golden colored tip leaves. The golden color emerges during processing after an accurate withering. Only a few areas in Fujian contain these types of tea plants. Golden Monkey tea is hand-processed each spring with careful plucking of only one leaf and one bud. The flavor profile of golden monkey tea is characterized by light, honeyed peach notes, and its almost indistinguishable astringency. This tea is highly prized, as evidenced by its second-place finish in the Signature Famous Teas – Hot Tea Class of the 2009 World Tea Championship.

1) This was one of the first of the premium black teas that I tried and I just love it. The taste is so complex it is hard to describe, slight hints of chocolate and the flavors change as it cools.
