Holding the title as one of the highest grades of oolong tea is Monkey Picked Oolong. Legend has it, Buddhist monks trained monkeys to climb to the very top of steep mountain slopes to pluck the tea leaves unreachable by people. Resulting in a rare tea consumed exclusively by the Imperial Court.
The large, evenly-sized and twisted leaves unfurl to yield a fresh, earthy aroma with undertones of orchid. Highly prized and hand-picked, this tea is excellent for multiple infusions. No monkeys were harmed in the making of this tea.
