From Fullchea

Extremely rare and of superb grade, the golden monkey is sourced from China’s prized Yunnan Province. Named after the appearance of its leaves, described as looking like a monkey’s claw, only the bud and the first leaf of the tea plant are hand-picked and hand-processed to preserve its exceptional flavor. Slightly sweet and fruit-forward, golden monkey Yunnan black tea is a rare treat, and not one to miss.

Golden Monkey Tea also known as Yunnan Pure Gold in China, is considered the finest of Yunnan tea. It contains fine big leaf buds, or golden tips, covered in tea down.

Benefits: It contains theaflavins and thearubigins, which are known to reduce the signs of aging and reduce stress.

First of all, this not one of the typical varieties of tea tea vendors typically name as “Golden Monkey.” Instead, this is a very large-leaf, Yunnan golden buds type of tea. It is comprised entirely of nice, big, “hairy,” silky smooth, unopened buds.

Vendor describes this tea as having a “roasted nuts flavor,” and I can agree with that. Furthermore, the tea has a nice “autumn leaves” aroma, and hints of maple syrup sweetness. Not as concentrated a maple sweetness that I found in a similar tea from Harney and Sons, but this is close. And really not a bad deal at $14.99/4 oz. on Amazon.com.

This is a great budget-friendly purchase for a higher-quality Yunnan tea. I’ve been getting up to three satisfactory steeps from this one, and it delivers the qualities of a lighter Yunnan black tea that I am looking for.

I think I will continue to sip other golden buds style Yunnan teas (such as the aforementioned one from Harney and Sons, which was absolutely incredible), but I feel that this one is a solid value and not somethin I would mind keeping in my cupboard.
