Strong apricot, a little citrus

The apricot flavor comes through pretty strong for me. There's also a note of citrus--maybe tangerine?

This was my second white tea from The Tea Spot, the first being the silver needle. Compared to silver needle, this is a bit livelier, less floral, and not quite as sweet. It's impossible to say which I like better. Both are amazing.

Favorite Morning tea!

Monkey Picked White is my favorite tea. It's light and fragrant with a flowery taste!

Monkey-picked no flavor

Disappointed - like drinking hot water. I now mix it with sencha, or gyruko or peach mango.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Monkey Picked White tea. We're sorry that you did not enjoy this tea. The flavor is mild with subtle apricot notes to add depth. Using a bit more tea per serving with a longer steeping time may bring out more flavor. With white tea, use water that has cooled for 3 mins after boiling. Thank you for trying this tea!


Very quick delivery
Good tea

Quality Issue

I've purchased quite a bit of this tea as a less expensive alternative to the white tea that is flower tips only. It was always a good mixture of tips and leaves. This last batch was almost 100% leaves.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your most recent batch of Monkey Picked White tea. Customer service will be in contact to offer assistance.
