Great Green Monkey
A prized and widely celebrated green tea, Great Green Monkey holds many accolades; it was selected as a "best tea" gold medal winner at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, and currently sits as the youngest member of China's "Top 10 Teas". Part of the draw of this unique tea is the intriguing size and shape of its leaves. Great Green Monkey has the largest sized leaves among other famous green tea: 60mm in length with an even thickness throughout. When steeped, you will note a delicate orchid fragrance proceeded by a flavor profile full of lightness and warmth, with the perfect hint of grassiness.
Mellow, Light, Vegetal
Brew with a water temperature of 160-170°F (71-76°C) for (3-5) minutes
The unorthodoxly large size of Great Green Monkey's leaves can make it difficult to fit them into traditional tea strainers and filters. In order to maximize flavor and utilize the entire leaf, it is recommended to carefully break the longer leaves you are using into two or three pieces prior to steeping.
