100 monkeys is a premium grade, loose leaf white tea from China. This rare and exotic white tea will leave even the most discriminating connoisseur with a smile. You will enjoy watching as the tea leaves unfurl and return to their original state. White tea is really a subclass of green tea, however, due to its recent acclaim, it has been given a class of its own. The major distinction is that white tea is not mechanically processed.
Buds and select leaves are harvested and merely air dried. This minimal amount of processing can make white tea have up to three times more beneficial antioxidants than green or black tea. 100 Monkeys is our best selling white tea.
