Classic Bai Lin Gong Fu Black tea of Fuding * Golden Monkey * Spring 2016
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
Bai Lin Gong Fu (aka Golden Monkey) Black Tea is made from Fuding Bai Hao "White Pekoe" varietal tea leaves. Our Premium grade is a one leaf to 1 bud semi-tippy grade. The tea leaves are picked in sets with 1 leaf and 1 bud. The processing allows for a golden-orange furry tip completmented by a dark leaf.
The brewed tea is sweet, viscous, fruity and floral. Very smooth drinking black tea with a little bit of bite, but not too much. Some people might prefer this to our pure tips Imperial Grade available here.
This tea is often referred to as "Golden Monkey" Black tea by western vendors.
