Organic Golden Monkey, or Jin Hou, is a specialty Chinese black tea. It gets the name as it is said the leaves resemble monkey paws. This famously high-quality black tea has large leaves and an abundance of golden tips. Golden Monkey originates from the Fujian and Yunnan Provinces of China and is carefully hand plucked of only one leaf and one bud at a time. It has a full-bodied taste with cocoa undertones and light, honeyed peach notes. Makes a perfect a rich, smooth and creamy texture cup of tea.
Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe (T.G.F.O.P.) is F.O.P. with a larger amount of tips. When these tips are in abundance, the terms 'Tippy and Golden' are attached to F.O.P., thus making it Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe. T.G.F.O.P. is the top grade of O.P. tea.
Pour 8 oz of simmering water (185-195° F) over 1 tsp. of tea. Steep 3-4 minutes.
