Golden Monkey (金猴茶) is considered one of the best Chinese black teas. This tea is hand-picked each spring and only the bud and first leaf are picked. The tea leaves are characterized by the pale gold threading and is the black tea equivalent to our Gushan Yinzhen Silver Needle white tea.

During ancient times, Golden Monkey was consumed by local landlords and Taipans. Due to the rarity of the tea, the Taipans believed that it had special powers and it gave them enhanced sexual agilities. We can't promise that, but we can say you'll enjoy a wonderful, full bodied tea of exceptional quality.
