Monkey Picked Oolong Tea

Monkey picked oolong tea has a long history in China which can date back to the early 18th century.

Legend goes that monkeys were trained by monks to pick the choicest leaves from the tip-top of wild tea trees for the rare tea blend. Another version goes that monkeys began to pick the leaves and presented to their master upon seeing their master pick tea leaves.

In ancient times, the monkey picked tea was presented to the Emperor and was enjoyed exclusively by the Imperial Court. As time went by, it became more accessible to common people.

Nowadays, monkey picked oolong simply refers to the highest quality Tie Guan Yin. It has alluring taste with fresh orchid aroma and fruity flavor. You are recommended to brew it Kung Fu style.

There are many benefits of drinking monkey picked oolong tea, including help with weight loss, teeth strengthening, combating the aging of skin and so on.
