Golden Monkey Black Loose Leaf Tea

Golden Monkey or Jin Hou is a famous Chinese black tea whose leaves are said to resemble monkey paws. Golden Monkey originates from the Fujian province of China and is hand-processed each spring with careful plucking of only one leaf and one bud. This Golden Monkey 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 a quality Jin Hou. This is a very complex black tea and can be enjoyed in multiple infusions, a real treat for black tea lovers.

 1 tsp per cup steep at 212 for 3-5 minutes.

    Golden Monkey and Tupelo Tea Co

    Posted by Mary on Aug 1st 2020

    Golden Monkey tea has been my favorite black tea for many years. I have 2-4 cups every morning, re-steeping the leaves for cups 2-4. I lived in Atlanta for 30 years and could always find the tea of my choice. I now live in a smaller town in Colorado and could not find my favorite tea. After visiting friends in Blue Ridge, GA and discovering Tupelo Tea, I was thrilled to find my favorite tea.and more there. I think I bought all they had of Golden Monkey, taking two huge bags of it home. I’ve been ordering from Tupelo Tea ever since. The quality is superb and I receive it in a few days with free shipping. Thank you Tupelo Tea. Look forward to visiting your special store next time I’m in Blue Ridge. In the meantime, I’ll keep ordering this delicious tea from you.

    Golden Monkey online order

    Posted by on May 4th 2020

    I have ordered tea online on multiple occasions from other providers and have always been disappointed. This order from Tupelo Tea renewed my faith in online ordering (though visiting the store will always be my first choice). I received the order promptly and the tea was so very fresh. Thanks to Tupelo Tea for taking care of me in these very strange times. I can't wait to visit the store again, but until then, I know you will be taking very fine care of this customer! Thanks!
