Golden Monkey Reserve
Golden Monkey Reserve
Yunnan, The land of Southern Clouds, is known for its world-famous black teas. Our Golden Monkey Yunnan tea is a rare and premium variety of tea that comes from the Yunnan province in China. It is considered exclusive because it is only produced in small quantities, making it difficult to find and purchase. The tea is known for its golden-brown color and sweet, smooth flavor, with notes of honey and cocoa. It is also highly prized for its high levels of antioxidants and other health benefits. This tea is part of our reserve line, carefully hand-picked and processed to ensure the highest quality and flavor. It is a true luxury for tea lovers and collectors.
The Yunnan Golden Monkey tea has plenty of shimmering gold tips with a bright, clear amber liquor. Deep, rich flavors of fruit and gentle spices accompany a lusciously full-bodied mouthfeel.
Note on Brewing: Whatever the method of brewing you decide to use to enjoy this black tea, always use freshly boiled water. This will give you the best and most consistent results, as the oxygen available to bind with the tea is at its highest level after the first boil.
Traditional Method of Preparation: Measure 3-5 grams or approximately 1 tsp of loose tea and add to one of our tea filter bags or for best results, add the tea to our Perfect Steeper. Add 8-12 oz of fresh water that has been heated to 190 F and steep for 3-5 minutes. (Our preference is to use 4 grams for 3 minutes.)
Iced Black Tea Preparation:
Cold Brew (Our Favorite): Measure 5 grams or approximately 1 tsp of loose tea and add to your vessel of choice. Add 12 oz of fresh water. Place in refrigerator for 8 hours. Strain to serve. Makes the smoothest cup with the least amount of tannins! Try for yourself and see the difference!
Step 1, Create Concentrate. Measure 5 grams or approximately 1 tsp of loose tea and add to one of our tea filter bags or for best results, add the tea to our Perfect Steeper. Add 6 oz of fresh water that has been heated to 190 F and steep for 4 minutes.
