From Gong Fu Tea Shop

The high elevations and cool mists of Nanping County, Fujian Province, China provide an excellent environment for some of the world’s best teas. This legendary Black Tea owes its name to an interesting bit of lore that claimed that to get to the best tea bushes, monkeys were trained to scale the cliffs and select only the finest buds. They would place the buds in their vests and climb back down the mountainside. Even though human hands pick these buds today, the quality is still excellent. The liquor of this tea is “monkey-colored” in appearance, and imparts a flavor comprised of both bitter smoke and sweet fruit. Try the legend!
