 Plucking Season: Spring

Grown near the Tai Mu mountains of Fujian province, China, Golden Monkey is also known as ‘Panyong Wang’, the king of high grade black teas.

Golden Monkey is in season during the spring (April-May). Since it is a heavily oxidized (dark) tea, it maintains its flavor well over the months.

Golden Tipped Varietal
Only certain tea plant varietals can produce golden colored tip leaves. The golden color emerges during processing after an accurate withering (moisture drying of the leaves).

Few areas in Fujian contain these types of tea plants. Other areas known to have golden tipped varietals are Yunnan and Hunan provinces in China and Assam in India. 

Since there are several grades of Golden Monkey available, we recommend those with long full leaves, consistent gold color and sweet aroma .

The Term “Monkey”
The tea term ‘Monkey’ in China, refers to the fuzzy, golden down on the leaves. The golden down provides texture and smoothness to the brew.
