Extra Info:

There is a connection between the term "Monkey King" and tea in general. The name "Monkey King" is often used in reference to a high-quality variety of Chinese green tea known as Taiping Houkui. This tea is produced in the Huangshan Mountains of Anhui Province in China.

The name "Monkey King" is derived from the Chinese name "Houkui," which translates to "Monkey King." It is said that the tea earned its name from a local legend involving a monkey. According to the story, a compassionate scholar buried a dead monkey he found in the mountains. The next day, the monkey appeared in his dream, revealing the location of a tea plant as a gesture of gratitude. The scholar then discovered the tea plant, which later became known as Taiping Houkui or Monkey King tea.

This tea has essentially become my daily drinker. As someone who can't normally drink straight Earl Grey beyond an occasional pot, this variation on the classic goes down smooth, and has a great balance of the bergamot and floral notes that make it a nice tea that's not to heavy, and no flavor too potent. Everything just blends so well together.

This tastes pleasant enough, but the aroma of the leaves and brewed tea is so perfumy that I was reminded of liquid hand soap. I love classic Earl Greys, but this is too smelly to drink.

So, while I have over 70 loose leaf teas from a very fine tea source (hehe) I only have a couple of green teas and have not found them to be complimentary to my palate. That was until I tried the flavored and blended green teas from NM Tea Co. They are absolutely spectacular. This one in particular, has jumped to the top five of my favorite teas. Incredible silky mouth feel, full body, delicious citrus and the easy caress of jasmine. I tame the bergamot with a tiny bit of sugar; be warned, too much sugar (or any additive) and you'll cover up they coy jasmine. Probably the best flavored tea I've ever had.

This was the first tea I ever tasted from NM Tea Co; and it was served to me by a friend in NM who frequents your shop. I had never tasted any tea so intriguing and I HAD to order more. This particular batch is just as palatable as the last: floral, multi-layered and, frankly, addictive! By far, my all-time favorite tea of yours.

this is a great tea. floral with a hint of citrus, and not too perfumey, i didn't find either the bergamot or the jasmine to be too overpowering of the green teas taste. a good pick me up type of tea.
