Angel's Comment:

This Golden Monkey Black Tea with its great taste and value ratio make it one of our Top Sellers.

Coming from Fujian, this Golden Monkey is made of the fresh buds and leaves of Fuding Pekoe after sun-withering, rolling, fermentation, and drying. This tea’s unique fruity flavor comes through on every sip of the liquid.

The fuzzy golden tips of this tea add to its appearance, one of the reasons it is called Golden Monkey. Another reason is the monkey-claw shape of the dry tea, black and gold in color; when brewed, the leaves bring out a brisk and smooth taste for the first sip, above a distinctive flavor with a sweet aftertaste.

Just like our Bai Lin Gong Fu, this Golden Monkey tea comes from Fujian Province and uses Fuding Pekoe as the base material, in the traditional method of crafting black tea. It is fully fermented, and contains one bud and two or three leaves; the golden color in the dry tea is due to the buds. While brewing, the leaves will spread in the liquid, showing their long, thin, full shape. The characteristic black tea taste comes through strong on the first sip, while the more unique sweet aftertaste lingers immediately after swallowing. This tea leaves a mellow aroma lingering in your mouth; if you love black tea, this is an excellent choice to try.

Our Golden Monkey black tea comes from Fuding in Fujian province, on the southeastern Chinese coast. The tropical and mountainous coastal climate here is perfect for growing tea. The area receives abundant rainfall, with misty spring days and mild temperatures through both summer and winter; the mountains around this region are almost completely forested, ensuring a high natural fertility of the soil and organic content, which in turn eliminates the need to use fertilizers.

Tea farmer Mr. Lin

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

He thinks that the most challenging factor is the weather: if the leaves suffer from bad weather, the yield will be reduced and the quality will not reach the standard. To combat the effects of cold weather, straw is used to cover the leaves and protect them from being frosted. This is just one thing that Mr. Lin has learned from experience over the years.

Because of this, his first priority is to strictly control product quality and ensure its reputation. Mr. Lin, together with his tea factory, will continue to provide high-quality tea and also regularly increase the number of factories that provide the healthy and natural beverage to the public.
