Golden Monkey Tea


This hand processed tea is produced at the start of the season, when the first leaves and buds are picked, these are characterized by the pale gold threading. Considered by many to be one of the finest loose leaf black teas available, certainly it is quite beautiful to look at and has a lovely, full-bodied flavour with subtle hints of peach and honey.

Christine Spencer
Golden Monkey

This is a delicious tea, very smooth with soft flavour but not at all weak.
The price is very fair and the delivery very good. I will order from Tugboat again. Love the name!

Best deal I found

Delicious tea at just about affordable prices. The local supplier of my fave Golden Monkey brew didn't survive the pandemic. So happy to have found this online.

Great quality tea

This tea is of very high standard and has a rich taste. Not my cup of tea (pun unintended) but it is a very good tea nevertheless.

Timothy Rowley
Best tea

One of the best tea’s in the tradition of real tea, the flavour is rich and intense, but not overpowering. Been buying now for couple of years now, usually in the shop but bought online this time as I could not get to the shop. Good efficient service will use again.

Stuart Davis

Simplest of brews; all that is required is boiling water, 3 to 5 minutes to brew. Result is sheer bliss.
