Golden Monkey is sometimes referred to by the grower as King of Panyong Congou. After a painstakingly labor intensive production process, this tea is hand sorted to ensure a beautiful leaf appearance. The leaves are curly, wiry and well twisted with a high percentage of tips evident. “Tip” is the tip of the new shoots and during the manufacturing process these tips turn a gold brown. “Tippy tea” is a leading indicator of exceptional quality, highly selective grading and usually only available in the first few weeks of the new season (New season teas have the most flavor, rarest, and most eagerly sought by tea connoisseurs).
