Handmade, small-farm tea that has a light-golden cup color and a very likeable sweet-nutty flavor. Its name and wonderful appearance give hints to the flavors and aromas that will follow once this tea is tasted. Like most green teas grown in Fujian Province, the best lots are harvested in early April. Our lot was harvested pre-Qing Ming - in one of the first plucks of the season. White Monkey is made of hand-crafted, thick, curled rich-green leaves mixed with plenty of white buds that give the tea its "playful" feel.
Taste is nutty, vegetal & sweet due to the high count of white buds. It is belly-warming, palate satisfying and serves well as an everyday beverage and will compliment food.
