Golden Monkey tea comes from the north in China's Fujian province. It features large black tea leaves interspersed with golden tips. It produces a lightly sweet, and 'round' cup of tea with a nice level of complexity. You'll enjoy the hints of apricot, nuts and rose.

Ingredients: Black tea.

 Details: This is a fairly recently developed tea from the north of Fujian. Mike found it when visiting a few factories outside of Panyang and Fuan. In a short time it has attracted a loyal, almost cult-like following. People love the flavors of Golden Monkey, as well as the name.
 Dry Leaves: Long, slender black leaves. Some of the leaves have golden tips.
 Liquor: Light pecan brown.
 Aroma: Lightly sweet, hints of apricot and nut, with hints of rose. Maybe even some cocoa notes.
 Flavors: A blend of cooked stone fruit such as baked apricots and the dry, but slight sugariness of semisweet chocolate. A mellow, nutty finish of roasted pecans.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Medium-bodied.
 Brewing Time: 4 to 5 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 212º
