金毛猴 Golden Monkey Oolong Tea (rock tea)
Feature: rich flavour, rich minerals, and very popular for gentlemen.
Oolong Tea: generally speaking, there are 4 areas in the world which are famous for Oolong teas. These four places include Tai Wan, south of Fu Jian, north of Fu Jian (Wu Yi Shan area 武夷山), Guangdong. However, only the Oolong tea from Wu Yi Shan area can be called Rock Tea.
Rock Tea: this is a special type of Oolong tea and only grows in Wu Yi Shan area. The tea is called ‘Rock Tea’. However, this does not mean the tea really grows on rocks. Instead, we mainly talk about the soil. The soil is withering rocks. Therefore, the tea does not have soil taste as tea normally has. The tea absorbs a lot of minerals from rocks. This is very rare and has very good taste.
There are 3 types of Rock Oolong Teas available at our Inkston Studio:
- Golden Monkey
- Rare Orchid
- Short Legs
They are made with the same method. The difference is that each type uses different types of tea leaves. All are top quality Rock Oolong Teas while each one is very unique.
Colour of brewed Tea: reddish warm colour.
Taste: contains rich flower fragrance and has different impressions: top notes are mainly floral, middle notes are creamy, base notes are fruity. This tea is very much similar to perfume. And also, when temperature changes, the tea taste/ smell also change. It is a very sophisticated tea type.
