Golden Monkey is renowned for its strong honey flavor. The aroma reminds me of chocolate cake, but the slightly malty flavor has hints of tobacco, stone fruit, and molasses with a lingering dry finish. The flavor of the dark copper liquor is complex and smooth without bitterness.

Widely considered to be one of the finest black teas available, Golden Monkey is an ancient Chinese Black Tea, originating from Songxi, Fujian. It is made from the newly opened single bud and leaf and is plucked in Spring from small leaf tea cultivars.  The tea was named because the curly leaves are covered by golden hair which resembles the paw of a golden monkey.
