<a target="_blank" href="https://www.adagio.com/black/golden_monkey.html" title="Golden Monkey">Golden Monkey</a> or Jin Hou is a famous Chinese black tea whose leaves are said to resemble monkey paws. <a target="_blank" href="https://www.adagio.com/black/golden_monkey.html" title="Golden Monkey">Golden Monkey</a> originates from the Fujian province of China and is hand-processed each spring with careful plucking of only one leaf and one bud. This <a target="_blank" href="https://www.adagio.com/black/golden_monkey.html" title="Golden Monkey">Golden Monkey</a> is sweet and very "nosy": savory roasted apples, palm sugar, walnut, cocoa, rye and spice notes that linger as you sip. Rich, coating texture and very smooth, soft mouthfeel are both signs of a quality Jin Hou. This is a very complex black tea and can be enjoyed in multiple infusions, a real treat for black tea lovers. Steep at 212°F for 3-5 minutes
