Wow, this is much better than the previous tea I drank. It is mildly robust. I wanted the flavor to be a little more complex where maybe I could taste various layers but I instead I got a well balanced cup. Not a bad thing, I enjoyed it.
Golden Monkey Paw
Golden Monkey Paw is a black tea made from the very young leaves and bud of new season growth. It originates from the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian Province, China. With the same careful process as White Monkey Paw green tea, the tea leaves are hand picked with an artistic process to preserve the tea leaf form and then delicately steamed and dried. The leaves are then allowed a fermentation process which brings out the beautiful black and gold colors. These perfect, prized tea leaves in our California Tea House collection resemble a monkey’s paw, hence the name.
