This Chinese style green tea from the Fujian province of China demonstrates how diverse green teas can be. While this tea could easily be a white tea with the high number of trichomes (or hairs) present on the tips, it has been slightly oxidized and releases a beautiful delicate green flavor. Chinese style green tea production often includes lightly pan-frying the leaves, thus allowing for a sweet chestnut taste to emerge. We believe that White Monkey is one of our top Chinese green teas. It offers a delicate flavor with subtle layers. Its sweetness allows us to enjoy this tea all year round, even during the heat of summer. Often in China a tea's appearance matters as much as its taste, and White Monkey again delivers. Gently curled leaves indicate a careful rolling process that opens the leaves' flavor, while not being too harsh. We would urge that boiling water should not be used on green teas, which will "burn" the leaves and create a more bitter brew. Instead, allow for the water to cool for a few minutes. This will help to ensure a sweet, tasty flavor.

***As we source this tea from China, unfortunately we have had to raise prices. This price will decrease to $9.00 for 2 oz when the trade situation has been resolved. ***
