Thank you! This year we planted 4,743 trees with WeForest and our packaging is 97% plastic free (working to 100%).

  • Grown on Wuyi Mountain in Fujian, China, this unusually light one bud and two leaves green tea derives its name from the way its leaves look like monkey paws. Plucked and processed entirely by hand, it is fresh, mellow, sweet and fragrant. The name White Monkey (also known as Snow Jade rabbit) draws on the fuzzy streaks of down on the leaves, akin to monkey paws and legends of monks who used to train animals to picked the most top leaves from the massive tea trees that used to grow wild in the region.
  • Green Tea, from Fujian’s Wuyi Mountain, China

    Quiet, sweet aroma, playful balanced starch notes with a velvet texture. Infuse for 2-3 minutes in water well below boiling (70-85°C) be careful to not over infuse on the water too hot!

  • One of the landmarks on Fujian’s Wuyi Mountain where the term comes from, Jade Maiden Peak, resembles a slender girl. Legend says the Jade Maiden left heaven to live on Wuyi Mountain, falling in love with Dawang, an earthly king. The Iron Slab Demon told the furious Jade Emperor of her whereabouts, and the Jade Maiden, Dawang and the demon were all turned into mountains.

    From experiencing the floral aroma to watching the silvery-green, tippy buds unfurl in hot water, to sipping the uplifting, pale gold liquor, a cup of White Monkey is a rare pleasure.
