There are conflicting stories about how this tea was named. Is it for the fuzzy, curly leaves that look a little bit like monkey paws? Or is there truth to the legend that monkeys were trained to pluck this tea with their nimble little fingers?
Golden Monkey teas are also known as part of the Panyang (or Pang Yang) family of teas. These golden teas are all from the Panyang area in Fujian Province, China – but Murchie’s Golden Monkey Tea is from Yunnan province.
