White Monkey Tea Description:
Sweet, yet earthy, this is a well-balanced tea that is intriguing. The dry leaf of White Monkey is quite colorful with a mixture of dark green leaves and lightly twisted buds still offering silvery hairs with a wide variety of sizes. The infused liquor offers floral and grassy notes while the taste has hints of sweetness, saltiness, and a complexity that increases as it cools.
