I hope I don’t offend anybody right here with this submit. According to my assets deep within the Wuyi Mountains there are many wild tea bushes however no Monkeys that choose tea or for that matter have ever picked tea right here.
Oddly sufficient nonetheless there look like a number of species of non human primates on this area that are identified to open/pop the highest off a bottle of beer. Granted there are footage and outdated work of the tea partnership between Monks and Monkeys buying and selling meals for wild tea leaves that might not be reached by people, nonetheless these primates have no real interest in the leaf. They favor one other brew.
So why have the title Monkey in a tea equivalent to our white monkey picked or golden monkey? Monkey Picked Tea refers to a high tier tea. Typically wild thicker leaves are used for this or rarer extra treasured leaves and buds.
