White Monkey is a very special green tea that is a favourite amongst connoisseurs for its light, sweet character and distinctive flavour. It is made from pure green tea leaves grown in the Taimu Mountains in Fujian, Southeast China and is only formed from the plants leaves and bud picked during the first two weeks of the season. The picked leaves are then very lightly steamed and dried to finish the process.
The result is this beautiful tea that is a green tea which shares many of the most prized characteristics of white tea: it is fragrant and aromatic with sweet notes and produces a delicate and sweet infusion with a characteristically dry green tea finish.
White Monkey is also included in the following signature gift collections:Supreme Green Tea Collection - £42.95
