Thoughts on Tea and Monkeys

I visited a major tea retailer a few years ago and the millennial behind the counter asked me if I’d like to try the Monkey Picked Oolong. I responded with, “I don’t know. Did the monkey wash its hands?” The millennial did not find this nearly as amusing as I did and looked at me as if I were one of those poo-flinging monkeys on YouTube. Having no desire to drink anything harvested by a primate, I declined and settled for my usual Earl Grey. No I do not want to buy a pound of tea. Yes I’m aware of your discount. No I do not need a tin. No I am not interested in anything else! Just give me my earl grey!

Imagine my disappointment when I did a little research and found out that monkeys don’t actually pick the tea. They just call it monkey picked so they can charge you more for it. Monkeys aside, oolong has become one of my staple teas, specifically Wuyi Oolong. The tea takes its name from the Wuyi Mountains in northern Fujian province in China. This medium strength tea has a smooth, smokey flavor perfect for any time of day or evening. If you’re a fan of oolongs, Wuyi is a must have.
