Monkey Picked Tea

Monkey Tea, Monkey Do


This tea is called Monkey Picked Tea, and it's not just a name it's a fact. According to legend, monkeys used to pick tea from high branches and brought them to their masters. The masters — mostly monks — thought it was delicious and so a cycle was born. These days, the monkey picking tea practice has all but died out, but apparently one remote village continues the tradition. Each bag of tea ($24.99) contains about two ounces of loose leaf tea, or approximately 28 cups. Oh and I should tell you that no monkeys were harmed in the tea-picking.

The flavor is supposed to be amazing, but to be honest, I haven't tried it yet. What do you think, is this something you'd want to try?
