Monkey Picked Oolong Tea
Oolong tea manufactured in the Fujian Province of China. This tea is named after the famed monkeys who picked tea for their owners. There are two contrasting stories here; the first tells of very clever monkeys trained to climb the highest tea trees in China and to brake off the best tea branches to use. The second tells a slightly different story of sending monkeys, attached to chains, up trees and then throwing sticks at them to encourage them to brake off other branches and throw them back down. In either case, current manufacture would only involve humans and wild tea trees to produce what is still one of the finest Oolong teas from China. A very Rare Tea.
