Supreme Ti Kwan Yin oolong from Fujian, China is a favorite and must taste for anyone! This tea is a quintessential oolong because of its partial oxidation, making it not too green and not too cooked. Enjoy this oolong for many infusions of the same tea leaves, tasting different characteristics of flavor in each infusion.
The legend has it that monks would train the monkeys in ancient China to pick the best tea leaves that were inaccessible to the human reach on cliffs and crags of waterfalls. Over time, this term, "monkey-picked" refers to a Chinese tea shop owners "best" or "top shelf" tea. Loose leaf tea comes packaged in a foil-lined, opaque pouch that has a resealable zip-lock to maintain freshness.

I have tried most of the oolong teas offered at Tea Embassy, and this is the one I continually come back to. I recently got a Yixing pot which I dedicated to only Monkey Picked Oolong. It's the oolong that I can always go back to and be fully satisfied. Since I have my Yixing pot at work, I offer the tea to all my coworkers who are ignorant of oolong, and all of them think it's a fantastic tea. If you're an oolong fan, I recommend this tea with flying colors.
