Product Description

A legendary black tea made from buds and young leaves, giving it a sweet and gentle flavour.  This is a very well known back tea prized for its sweet flavours. The tea has been compared to Silver Needle because of the high ratio of buds to leaves. The large number of buds and the age of the leaves are what give Golden Monkey its signature sweetness. The taste is a masterful mix of fruit like sweetness, with nutty and floral undertones.
