Golden Monkey Black Tea originates from the Fujian province of China. Fujian teas account for about one-fifth of China's total tea output, and the consistently high quality keeps them in demand. This province has a long and rich history of cultivating tea for over one thousand years. It is not surprising that due to its coastal location, the excellent climate, mild temperatures, abundant rainfall, and mountainous terrain has greatly contributed to the province's high quality teas.
This tea is hand-processed every spring with a careful plucking of only one leaf and one bud. It is among one of the finest Chinese Black Teas available today. A nicely brewed cup of Golden Monkey Black Tea can best be described by its sweet and aromatic combination of savory roasted apples, cocoa and spice that lingers after each sip. Perhaps one of the only full-bodied teas, tea drinkers have noted the rich, coating texture and soft mouth-feel after drinking this delicious black tea.
