(3 customer reviews)

$5.50$38.75 (from $0.68/cup)

This lively brew has a buttery aroma with a hint of tuberose with a floral flavor that develops with each infusion. The lingering aromatic finish and smooth astringency make this a truly enjoyable experience every cup.

    This is a fantastic Oolong. For a while I’ve been searching for that “quintessential” blue chip oolong, and I think I’ve found that quality in this one.

    I wouldn’t put it in the “interesting” category of oolongs, but for a buttery, fragrant, smooth, and full flavored oolong? Absolutely. This is both a treat, and a totally every-day drinkable tea.

    The highest quality Monkey-picked Tieguanyin I have found yet. It has a very unique taste from other oolongs but it’s amazing. I bought the sampler and plan to purchase 2oz. I highly recommend buying!

    I have had other tieguanyin oolongs that cost much more and found this one to be the best flavor yet. Buttery and delicious it can be taken with milk or on its own. Good for multiple steeps. Highly recommend.

Description

The legend is that there were tea bushes of the best quality growing so high in the Wuyi mountains that they were too dangerous to harvest so Monkeys were trained to pick leaves. Today the term Monkey-picked has nothing to do with monkeys and everything to do with the finest quality teas.
