White Monkey is, despite its name, a green tea.
Grown high in the mist-cloaked mountains of Fujian Province, White Monkey has a delicate, mellow flavor without a trace of bitterness, balanced with aromatic notes of lilac & toasted pine nut. Teas grown at high elevations are highly sought after because the leaf develops at a slower rate, storing up extra antioxidants & achieving an enhanced complexity of flavor. According to legend, Buddhist monks harvested high-elevation teas by training monkeys to pick the difficult-to-reach leaves from wild tea trees precariously perched along treacherous cliffs.
