Tieguanyin 'Monkey Picked' Dark Roast
Production: 20 Hour Charcoal Roast
Farming: Traditional Farming, No Chemical Pesticides or Fertilizers
Attributes: Fiery & Enlightening
While it is actually picked by humans, those who harvest this tea from Treasure Mountain’s precarious, 70-degree slopes at exceedingly high elevations possess considerable monkey-like prowess. 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. This dark roast’s rich, honey-like body carries pervasive, warm-chocolate notes and an accompanying, intoxicating aroma achieved by custom roasting over charcoal for more than 20 hours.
Much deeper than our floral green Tieguanyin Light-Medium roast.
