It's a Chinese thing. They reportedly really did (at one time, at least) train monkeys to pick tea from trees that were hard to climb, but today it just means high quality.

When we get tired of tricking the rookies and fill-ins into believing I'm a hand model in the off season... "Monkey picked tea" monkey trainer is the other one that's fair game. You'd be surprised what an elaborate pre thought up story can do :-)
