White monkey tea is a green tea sometimes mistaken for white tea. It is cultivated in the Taimu Mountains of the Northern Fujian province of China. The leaves of the white monkey tea are long with many white-colored tips covered with fine and fuzzy layer of hair. White monkey tea is typically plucked during early spring season. Only the tip buds and one leaf are plucked. These young leaves of the white monkey tea are then meticulously gathered and manually shaped into an appearance that is bent, stout and brimming with white tips all over. White monkey tea produces a clear and bright liquor and an intricately sweet and delicate taste. Nicely balanced, it doesn't get bitter. Steep it in low temperature (65 to 75 degrees C).
