It is considered one of the finest black teas available. Golden Monkey Paw or Jin Hou is a famous Chinese black tea whose leaves are said to resemble monkey paws.
Our Golden Monkey Paw black tea comes from a tea garden in Fujian which is completely surrounded by mountainous forests and a coastal climate. The abundant rainfall and mild temperatures ensure conditions perfect for growing this tea. It is hand-processed each spring by carefully plucking its leaves and buds.
During ancient times, Golden Monkey Paw black tea was consumed by local landlords and Taipans. Due to the rarity of the tea, the Taipans believed that it had special powers, provided them with agility and sexual powers.
Our organic Golden Monkey Paw is sweet and very “nosy”: savory roasted apples, palm sugar, walnut, cocoa, rye and spice notes that linger as you sip.
Rich coating texture and very smooth, soft mouthfeel are both signs of quality Jin Hou. This is a very complex organic black tea and can be enjoyed in multiple infusions, a real treat for black tea lovers.
Next to water, tea is the most consumed beverage in the world. In the East, where tea was born, green tea is king. In the West, where tea has been eagerly adopted, black tea reigns supreme.
