Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
Golden Monkey Tea comes from the Fujian province of China. Workers hand-process it each spring, at the start of the season, when the first leaves and buds appear. The name "Golden Monkey" comes from the appearance of the leaves, which some say resemble monkeys claws. When brewed, this infusion is subtle yet flavoursome. It is one of our most popular China Black Teas.
Arguably best of all, there are health benefits to be had from frequently consuming this Tea. According to research, it can boost the metabolism of fat cells. This, in turn, enables the body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently. Ultimately, this can lead to improved weight management.
Furthermore, Golden Monkey Tea can enhance cognitive function, aid digestion and even reduce the risks of developing type-2 diabetes. It can also improve cardiovascular health, support the immune system and, of course, entice the palate!
About Fujian Province
Tea has grown in Fujian for some 1,600 years. It hosts 336 different varieties of the Camellia sinensis plant, the most of any other Chinese province. Its subtropical climate makes for perfect Tea-growing conditions, with workers producing White, Green, Oolong and, of course, Black Tea.
One of the most famous Black Teas to come from Fujian is Lapsang Souchong. Golden Monkey Tea, in comparison, is still somewhat of an up and coming beverage. However, its popularity continues to increase rapidly. Hopefully one day Golden Monkey Tea will receive the recognition it deserves!

Benefits of Golden Monkey Tea
Did you know that frequent Golden Monkey Tea consumption can reduce the risk of cognitive decline? This is according to new research published in the "American Journal of Clinical Nutrition". It stated that experts had conducted a study at the University of Singapore.
The results determined that those who drank 2-3 cups of any Black Tea a day had a 55% lower chance of experiencing cognitive decline. Those who drank 6-10 cups, on the other hand, had a 63% lower chance. This may ultimately contribute to reducing the risk of developing dementia.
