From Sea Dyke Brand

It is refined, with traditional techniques, from Oolong tealeaves produced in South Fujian. Curly in shape, black bloom in color, it has a very special fragrance of flowers, which is clean, high and lasting. It tastes mellow, thick and brisk.
It is an unique and brilliant variety of Oolong tea in South Fujian and gets its name because the bloom green and curly shoots covered with fine hair resemble hairy monkeys. With unique high and lasting fragrance similar to that of flowers, as well as clear, mellow but refreshing taste, it enjoys great popularity among consumers.

The dry leaves are a mix of colours ranging from olive to light to charcol brown and smell of fruit, bread and a sweet lily.
I brewed this tea at 40, 50, 60 70and 80s. The steeped tea ranged in colour from light straw to light peachy orange.

Through out two brewing sessions captured scents and flavours of fruit ranging from plum, peach, marmelade, dried apricot, banana and lemon , grain notes ranging from sweet corn, toast and sugar cookies, spice, cinnamon and faint nutmeg, cream, vanilla, and light floral notes ranging from a sweet lily to honeysuckle. The tea also had light sweet vegetal notes and a light astringency in the front of the mouth.

Many of the leaves of this tea were broken, however the pieces were fairly large and the tea was not bitter. It maintained a creamy mouthfeel followed by a light astringency in the front of the mouth through all the steeps.

Overall the tea was pleasant with a lot of complexity in flavour. The flavour was not excessively sweet or intense. However I think I enjoyed the TKY in this series more because I enjoyed the spiciness in it more.
