Monkey Picked Oolong Tea is a rare and unique Chinese Oolong Tea. It comes from the Fujian Province, which has long made outstanding infusions.
The leaves are semi-oxidised and only experience a short period of fermentation - a trait that effectively makes them the middle-ground between Green and Black Tea. Perhaps most important is the fact that we pack them fresh to order.
