- Monkey Picked Oolong
Monkey Picked Oolong
The most prevailing legend regarding the origin of this tea’s name holds that local monks convinced monkeys to climb the tall, wild tea trees and bring down the newest leaves growing on the treetops. We like to think the pickers, reaching for leaves in precarious places, looked like monkeys in the trees. Either way, this tea is one of the few that holds up well to up to three infusions, and produces a rich golden liquor with a spicy aroma and semisweet aftertaste.
