Golden Monkey Black Tea - Spring 2021
A popular black tea from Fujian Province of China, the Golden Monkey Black tea is a medium to light body, with cacao-like notes mixed in with ripe figs and dark honey. It is hard not to be happy with its smooth texture and a lovely sweet and nutty after taste.
DRY LEAF: Wiry medium size leaf with ample amount of golden tips. (It is preponderance of golden tips in this tea that inspires the name Golden Monkey.) Lovely cacao-like aroma.
WET LEAF: Lovely bud sets of one bud and single leaf is revealed. The nose is sweet with notes of honey and roasted peanuts.
CUP: Dark amber cup with sweet aroma of dry fruits and honey. Smooth body with lingering sweet aftertaste. Highly enjoyable.
