Description

Fluffy, golden tea tips are what give this tea its special flavor. Using the same processing techniques as delicate white teas, Golden Monkey has mellow notes of semi-sweet chocolate and apricots and has a light, smooth finish with hints of pecans. A black tea for those with sophisticated palates.

Preparation:
1) Bring fresh, filtered water to a boil
2) Pour over your tea leaves in a teapot
(1 spoonful of tea per serving)
3) Steep 3 minutes
4) Stir, strain, and enjoy!
