Jin Hou / Golden Monkey - Fujian
金猴 (Jīn hóu) Golden Monkey
Grown in the upper reaches of the Wuyi mountains in Fujian China. A flavory full bodied tea with an exotic character tea tasters describe as 'mouth-feel'.
Golden Monkey is sometimes referred to as King of Panyong Congou. After a labour intensive production process, this tea is hand sorted to ensure a beautiful leaf appearance. The leaves are curly, wiry and well twisted with a high percentage of tips evident. 'Tip' is the tip of the new shoots and during the manufacturing process these tips turn a gold brown. 'Tippy tea' is a leading indicator of exceptional quality, highly selective grading and usually only available in the first few weeks of the new season
