Golden Monkey Tea
Is this a favourite of anyone’s here?
I love the look of the tea with the black leaves and lighter buds. Thinking about getting some.
we have the tea of golden monkey tea and golden buds black tea, you can visit www.organicteaschina.com
The strange thing is that despite it being marketed as super popular in China, it seems hardly popular at all here. Golden Monkey, literally translated, is not a black tea here at all from what I can tell. I was told it might go under the name Bailin gongfu so I looked that up and it seems to be the same thing but it’s very clearly not popular at all.
Personally I would recommend a nice golden needle dian hong or a decent jin jun mei. I don’t have any experience with “golden monkey” apparently.
How does it taste?
I’m not a black tea fan but Golden Monkey is one I really enjoy. It’s sweet and malty. Got mine from Yunnan Sourcing
I like Bailin Gongfu (aka GoldenMonkey). Sweet, malty, with cocoa and chocolate notes.
If you like tippy Dian Hong and Jin Jun Mei, this is a good alternative that shares some notes of both.
My daughter and I very much enjoy it. The Golden Monkey what-cha has this year is excellent – highly recommended!!
