Monkey Picked Oolong

Monkey Picked Oolong is a most celebrated tea, lightly oxidized, smooth and satisfying with a glorious floral aroma. The tea opens to 2 full leaves and a bud. There is a legend that originally, the wild growing tea was picked on rock faces that only monkeys trained to perform the task could achieve. Since the tea was so prized by Buddhist monks as well as loved by the monkeys, they formed more of a partnership where the monkeys gathered the tea leaves and were cared for by the monks.

Over time, the monkeys were replaced by tea workers. The tea is still highly prized for it’s rarity, wonderful fresh, Oolong taste. Since the tea has a limited harvest area, the supply is also limited.

While the cost is more than most Oolongs, the taste is worth the price. Try it and see if you agree.
