Tieguanyin 'Monkey Picked' Dark Roast
LIMITED QUANTITY AVAILABLE
Production: 20 Hour Charcoal Roast
Farming: Traditional Farming, No Chemical Pesticides or Fertilizers
Attributes: Fiery & Enlightening
While this tea is not actually picked by monkeys, those who harvest this tea from Treasure Mountain’s precarious 70-degree slopes at exceedingly high elevations must possess incredible skill and care. Here, the altitude, fog, and light spring rains are met with perfect four-directional winds that together create ideal conditions for pest resistance and optimal growth. The custom 20-hour roast imbues a deep caramel body that carries pervasive notes of warming spices and an intoxicating aroma.
Much deeper than our floral green Tieguanyin Light Roast.
