White Monkey Tea,come from Taimu mountain,Fujian Province. A delicate but intense full green flavor.
white monkey tea is made from the top two leaves and the bud of new season growth (late march /early april). these delicate leaves are gently and gingerly steamed and dried so the end result is an exquisite hand made green tea. you will see that the leaves still have the "hairy down" on them which indicates that these leaves were plucked very early in the morning and within the first two weeks of the new season of growth. when you infuse these teas you will witness the delicate leaves and bud uncurl in your cup almost coming back to life! the dry leaf appearance of these teas is tending white and said to resemble a monkey paw. even though this is a green tea, the visual appearance and cup liquor is so delicate that is can also be almost considered a white tea. it produces a very light cup that is noticeably sweet, and infused with a fresh, delicate scent.

2. The water temperature for brewing green tea should be around 80º C.
3. Pour the hot water over the tea leaves, and wait for about 2 minutes’ infusion.
