White Monkey Artisan Tea has nothing to do with monkeys!
Whenever you see the word monkey in the name of a Fine Chinese tea, know that the term “Monkey” refers to the tea being either rare or handled and processed using extreme care. This term may be a carryover to the old stories once told to the British tea traders while pressing for answers regarding the quality of tea purchased. The Chinese salesmen explained …the tea is of such rarity; grown so remotely that it could not be picked by humans, but only by trained monkeys (wink, wink).
This “monkey tea” is a carefully rolled and curled white tea, that is light and fluffy to view, but deep on flavor. You will find this to be a very enjoyable white tea, both visually and aromatically and the taste- just delightful. Limited supplies.
Compare with our black Golden Monkey Black Tea, another incredible tea!
