This high quality Tie Guan Yin or Iron Goddess cultivar tastes exceptionally smooth. The aroma is very fragrant with toasty, fruity, and a mildly sweet aftertaste. There is an interesting legend behind this tea’s name. Long ago, it was very hard to harvest the tea trees for this tea as they grew on cliff faces. Therefore, local Buddhist monks trained monkeys to pick the leaves of these otherwise unreachable tea trees. Nowadays, Monkey Pick Oolong Tea represents a high quality Tie Guan Yin. As a premium tea, it is considered the go-to tea for special occasions, but we recommend not to wait for a special occasion as the taste of this tea should be an everyday affair.
