Description
 
This rare and exceptional white tea from China's Hunan Province will appeal to even the most discriminating connoisseur. It takes its name from an ancient legend about an old teamaker and his wife, who tended to a small plot of land high in the hills. The couple was terrorized by a renegade band of monkeys and, try as they might, the couple could not rid themselves of this curse. In desperation, the husband traveled to a distant mountain to consult a Shaman. The Shaman gave the man a piece of parchment with a recipe for a new type of tea. As instructed, the man returned home and left 100 pounds of tea in a wooden chest. The next morning, the chest was empty and the monkeys never returned.
