Green Monkey is made using the varietal, Mei Zhan, a slow growing, locally treasured tea bush offering deep, rich flavors. Mei Zhan prefers the higher elevations of Fujian Province where temperatures rise and fall developing compact, dense buds and leaves. Locally known as ''Monkey'' tea, this green ‘'fresh tea'' is grown wild (no rows, no cultivation) and made to local custom with skillful processing of the leaf. The flavors will progess from fresh vegetables, asparagus to a nice citrus note in the finish. Tea leaves smell of hazelnuts, the brew is of yellow-green colour and of freshy, sparkling flavour with a long aftertaste.
