Black tea from the Fujian province of China. Golden Monkey tea is hand-processed each spring with a careful plucking of only one leaf and one bud. It is among the finest Chinese black teas available today. The name comes from its unique appearance: the leaves resemble monkey claws.

Over the past month I have been fortunate enough to try several teas from Georgia Tea Company and I have to say I have enjoyed my tea tasting experiences immensely. Their customer service is TOP NOTCH and the aroma of their teas are out of this world. Nearly everything I have tried I have been anywhere from pleasantly surprised to completely blown away with the wonderful taste!
Today I would like to tell you about Golden Monkey from Georgia Tea Company. I used to LOVE Adagio’s Fuijan Baroque and Adagio’s Yunnan Jig and I still do…but…Georgia Tea Company’s Golden Monkey seems to be the taste of both crammed into one tea but even BETTER.
Their Golden Monkey has a cakey and chewy goodness to it…malty and bold. The taste lingers long after your sip is complete. I found myself longing for that next sip and after my cup was gone thinking about another.
