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.

Adventurous TeaIngredients:

Chinese White Tea

Step 1:
Add boiling water to mug and allow the water to cool to 170°-185° or simply wait 2-5 minutes.
Step 2:
Steep 1 flat Tbsp or 3-4 grams of tea per 8 oz of water.
Step 3:
Steep for 1-3 minutes. It may be well worth experimenting with water closer to 170° as white teas often provide more character with cooler water. Try multiple steepings.

  • White Tea for the 1st time

    I've never had a white tea before, but Hilary was able to offer so much wonderful information, I couldn't resist. Being able to 'nose' each tea before purchasing really helped b/c I could make reasonable expectations about the tea after steeping. It is definitely light, but not short on character or complexity. I was actually surprised how much I enjoyed it as I am a baked puerh and black tea drinker.It was really nice to find something on the other side of the spectrum. This tea definitely changes over multiple steeps, but does not diminish over the course of the multiple experiences. The nose is alluring and really excites me about enjoying this tea. The palate is light, but has layers too it that can be fun to chase and/or explore, but do not think for a moment it lacks flavor. The flavors will be experienced in a very different way, so I hope you will give it a try.
