Golden Monkey Black Tea
Golden Monkey tea (Chinese: 金猴茶) is the name of a black tea originating from the Fujian provinces in China.
Only the bud and first leaf are picked, and the tea leaves are
characterized by the pale gold threading. Golden Monkey tea is a black
tea counterpart of Silver Needle white tea.
The flavor profile of golden monkey tea is characterized by light,
honeyed peach notes, and its lack of astringency. This tea is highly
prized, as evidenced by its second-place finish in the Signature Famous
