From Tea Story

A green tea cultivated in the famous district of the seven mountains in the province of Jiangxi. The annual production is limited. This makes this tea, which is only harvested once a year in April, a rarity. During that time the tea leaves and buds develop the special freshness that offers the perfect tea indulgence.

These delicate leaves are gently and gingerly steamed and dried. The dried leaf is said to look like that of a monkey’s paw. Legend has it that this tea originally grew on treacherous, rocky slopes, making tea-picking a perilous task. The local people grew tired of risking injury for their tea and trained monkeys to forage for the tea leaves instead, rewarding them with food. In honour of the indispensable role of our resourceful cousins, the tea was named ‘White Monkey’.
