Monkey-Picked Ti Kuan Yin Oolong Tea
Monkey-Picked Ti Kuan Yin Oolong Tea is processed according to traditional techniques for Oolong, this Ti Kuan Yin was oxidized “three hong (red) to seven lu (green),” meaning that the leaf is oxidized until 30% is red and 70% remains green. Why is it called “Monkey-Picked”? From the steep mountains of China’s Fujian Province, this tea’s name recalls legends of a time when trained monkeys were employed to pluck leaves from the highest-growing wild tea plants in this region. This highly aromatic, dark-roasted oolong is delightfully sweet and smooth with a light, fruity aftertaste. A must-try for oolong lovers—-now monkey-free.
