The Monkey Picked Oolong Tea Experience:
legendary, classic, unforgettable

No monkeys were harmed or exploited in the making of this tea! Despite legends to the contrary, the name “Monkey Picked” refers to the highest grade of oolong tea a tea artisan has to offer. Our Monkey Picked Oolong is the best of its maker, and a truly noteworthy tea.

Tasting Notes:
buttery, velvety smooth, slightly sweet

The unfurling leaf of this exquisite oolong produces a clear, golden cup and brings forward an earthy aroma. The flavors are complex, with accents of roasted nuts and caramel. Apricot, orchid and honey undertones shine through with a subtle sweetness in the cup. There is a soothing character to this tea. The smooth-bodied infusion offers a clean, refreshing finish and a lingering calm.

Ingredients: Exquisite Chinese Oolong Tea.

Caffeine Breakdown

Savoring Monkey Picked Oolong Tea:

Relax and enjoy this lovely tea with a slice of warm quiche or a vegetable barley soup and some rustic bread. For something sweet, pair with fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies.

As with other oolongs, prepare and steep in a clear glass brewing vessel to see the rolled leaves unfurl. Brew with a generous amount of leaf. Carve out time to savory this experience over multiple steepings.

More on Monkey Picked Oolong Tea:

According to legends and lore, monks trained monkeys to gather the youngest, most delicate leaves from the tops of wild tea trees for this special tea. The legend lives on in the name and gives a nod to the uniqueness of this tea.

Monkey Picked Oolong - Verified Buyer 
an exceptionally flavorful tea - it has the classic aroma and taste that makes this variety so loved. This is a tea that works equally well as a breakfast tea as it does for something to set the proper tone as an afternoon tea.Fusion Tea's price is very competitive and I will be buying from them again.

Great Quality! - Verified Buyer 
I've been drinking Monkey-Picked Oolong for several years now, as it's one of my favorites. Nice and mild, with a bit more caffeine than the greens I normally drink. The most important thing here, is that the tea Fusion sells is fantastic quality. I ordered from them for the first time a few weeks ago, expecting the worst, because of the pricing... I was VERY pleasantly surprised! The Monkey-Picked Oolong here costs about a third of the place at the mall (as well as another source I use on the internet), with WAY better quality. Steeping reveals very full leaves, there's virtually no dust in the bag at all, and if you order smaller quantities, they include a cannister, like one of the other tea places on the internet used to. I can't wait to order a few of my other teas!

Very Good Value - Verified Buyer 
For the price this tea is very good. Have had this oolong from other distributors that have been a lot more expensive, and found the flavor to be a little more pronounced. Certainly worth a try if you haven't tried it already.

Nice and Smooth - Verified Buyer 
I love tea and have been purchasing it at a local tea shop but it's EXPENSIVE there. This tea is just as good - better in fact. Nice, smooth fruity and full bodied. Used 2 tsp 3 times, great value!
