White Monkey Tea
Brew with water at 75 to 80 degrees and brew for 2 to 3 minutes, be careful not to over infuse
White Monkey Tea is a Green Tea type from the foothills of the Wuji Mountains in Fujian province, China. Its name derives from the fact that, many centuries ago, people used trained monkeys to collect the best Tea leaves.
Now, of course, production is an exclusively human affair. We pack it fresh to order, ensuring both its quality and consistency.
Each packet of White Monkey Tea contains large, twisted, silvery leaves that, when brewed, boast a slightly nutty character with grassy hints. It is a rare gem that makes for an excellent choice regardless of whether you’re a casual drinker or a connoisseur.
Furthermore, it’s worth noting that White Monkey Tea comes with Green Tea Benefits. This is according to the latest scientific research, which has long recognised its potential. Studies indicate that beverages such as this one can reduce diabetes risks and even promote weight loss. As such, whatever your reason for choosing White Monkey Tea, you’ve undoubtedly decided well.
About Tea from China
White Monkey Tea is but one of hundreds, if not thousands, of Green Tea types from China. The Fujian province alone creates some of the best known and most indulgent varieties, including this one!
The subtropical climate of the region, as well as its rich, fertile soil, makes for the perfect conditions to cultivate Camellia sinensis (Tea) plants. Indeed, White Monkey Tea stands testament to that fact.
Today, drinking Green Tea is an integral part of Chinese culture and society, accounting for approximately 50% of its consumption worldwide.
While varieties such as Sencha, Matcha, Gunpowder and Jasmine Tea have long held the limelight, our White Monkey Tea may soon give them fierce competition. Why not discover this for yourself today? You won’t be disappointed!

Benefits of White Monkey Tea
Although not yet proven outright, some researchers believe that Tea (no matter the type) can reduce the risk of developing cancer. Indeed, preliminary evidence from a 2015 meta-analysis has already shown promising results.
It noted that drinking a brew a day could reduce cancer risks by 2%. Those who drank the most Tea, on the other hand, had a 21% lower cancer risk than those who drank none.
It’s essential to note, however, that The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company does not endorse the consumption of Tea for this purpose at this stage. Nevertheless, we support ongoing research.
