This exceptional black tea was harvested in Fujian. After the leaves have been plucked, along with the highly prized buds, they undergo a complex process of rolling and shaping. The leaves look like tiny monkeys' feet, and produce a wonderful golden liquor. Jin Hou contains more theine than other black teas of similar varieties. According to legend, this tea used to grow in inaccessible places, so the monks trained monkeys to gather the leaves.

This is a very high quality black tea. Its long golden leaves produce a velvety liquor with generous honey, woody and malt flavors. A unique tasting experience!
