This renowned black tea gets its name from its beautiful leaves, which are said to resemble monkey paws. Offering up wonderful flavours of savoury roasted apples, walnut, cocoa, palm sugar, rye and lingering spice notes, Golden Monkey is sweet and rich, with complex notes that make it ideal for multiple infusions.
Originating from the Fujian province, Golden Monkey is hand-processed every spring by picking only one leaf and a single bud. The leaves are plucked when they are relatively young and still covered in golden hairs. The leaves are processed using a combination of withering, rolling, oxidation, and drying; the withering process allows the leaves to lose some of their moisture, while the oxidation process allows them to develop their flavour and aroma. Golden Monkey tea is said to have been produced for the imperial court during the Ming dynasty, and today can still be produced in this traditional way.
