mood boosting & simply refreshing.
Jasmine White Monkey is a delicately floral traditional green tea that is wholesome and soothing! Green tea has this special amino acid in it called L-theanine which works to improve your mood and reduce stress.
Why is it called "white monkey?" There's a few theories of where the name came from. Some say it was named that because in early tea processing days, tea farmers would train monkeys to pick these tea leaves in the tops of the trees. (Whether this is true or not, monkeys definitely don't pick tea leaves anymore.) Another theory says that after the young tea buds are gathered and processed by hand, it results in white-tipped rolled tea leaf that looks like a white-haired monkey's paws. We know, weird, but kinda cute. 🐵
Made with white monkey green tea and jasmine flowers. Enjoy this blend served hot and unsweetened, or with a touch of honey.
Add 1-2 teaspoons in 8 oz of hot water for 2-3 minutes.
Be sure to steep this tea for precisely 2-3 minutes and try to use hot, but not boiling water. This tea is delicate, but worth the extra care.
