Subtle hints of peach and honey
This hand processed tea is produced at the start of the season, when the first leaves and buds are picked, these are characterized by the pale gold threading. Considered by many to be one of the finest loose leaf black teas available, certainly it is quite beautiful to look at and has a lovely, full-bodied flavour with subtle hints of peach and honey.
Brewing the best cup. One teaspoon per cup. Freshly boiling water, brew your tea for 4 minutes, a good rule of thumb is 3-5 minutes for most black teas (depending on your preference for strength) and enjoy with or without milk
Whether the appearance of the leaves actually look like Monkeys claws is subjective, and I can't say that I have studied monkeys but, even so, I don't really see it. Regardless, this is a wonderfully complex tea which is a real treat for black tea lovers.
