Golden Monkey comes from Fujian Province. Dry tea looks like monkey’s claw with conspicuous golden tips. When brewed, rich aroma of black tea could be smelled. It tastes mellow and smooth. The sweet aftertaste performs quickly and lasts long.

  • Produced in Fuding, Fujian(福建), China
  • Tea leaves are tight as needles, conspicuous golden tips, slightly curly
  • Bright orange yellow liquor when brewed
  • Sweet taste, followed with fruity fragrance and potato smell
  • Low caffeine (less than 20% of a cup of coffee)

Coming from Fujian, the Golden Monkey is made of the fresh buds and leaves of Fuding Pekoe, by lightly sun withering, rolling, fermentation and drying. Golden Monkey has the particular aroma of black tea. You could scent the fruity flavor through every sip of the tea.

The golden hairy tips truly make this tea more attractive. This is one reason why it is called Golden Monkey. Another reason is its monkey-claw-liked shape of the dry tea, which is in golden and black color. When brewed, the Golden Monkey Tea tastes brisk and smooth for the first sip, presenting a distinctive flavor. If you like stronger flavor, you could brew for a longer time. The sweet aftertaste could act faster for thicker liquid. You could only feel it when trying by yourself.

Same as Bai Lin Fu, the Golden Monkey Tea is from Fujian Province, using Fuding Pekoe as material, and made by the traditional craft method of black tea. It’s fully fermented black tea. The fresh tea leaves are one bud and two or three leaves. The golden colored in dry teas are the buds. After brewing, leaves will spread in the liquid. The leaf is long and thin in full shape. Strong flavor of black tea will show for first sip while the sweet after taste shows immediately after swallowing. The mellow aroma of Golden Monkey lasts long in your mouth. If you are a love of mixed black tea, this is also a good choice to buy.

About Tea Farmers

Mr. Lin Xingbiao has been a professional tea farmer for thirty years. Born in a traditional tea family, he was deeply influenced by his family and built his own tea factory in 1966. With the gradual growth of his factory, he is trying to seek the common development between enterprise and tea farmers.

He thinks that the most challengeable factor is the weather. If tea leaves suffered from bad weather, the yield would be reduced and the quality would not reach the standard.

If tea leaves suffered from cold weather, straws would be used to cover them and protect them from being frosted. This is what Mr. Lin gets from his experience over the years.
