drank Golden Monkey by Adagio Teas
504 tasting notes

Alright folks, I’m back! For a small amount of time. But enough time to enjoy my swap package from Joe Cook!! Thank you so much Joe for all the generous samples!

I chose Golden Monkey to try first because it’s 1:33 pm and this tea is speaking to me yo.

Piping hot, it’s very malty and has a “sundried” taste to it, that’s how I would describe it! A little bit of honey goodness, plus bold, full flavour. As it cools down, I get this kind of tomato-y taste that I’m not really digging, but it passes right away and slips into malty goodness.
So I’m not quite sure what the “tomato” part is – I had the same experience with Utopia Tea’s Cocoa Mate, so maybe it’s a cocoa sort of flavour that my tastebuds are misinterpreting!

Either way, this is a great morning/mid afternoon/any time tea when I need a kick in the butt with some sweet flavour notes too! Thank you Joe!

(Man it was hard to write this review; my boyfriend’s band is in the adjacent room rehearsing for their very last show tonight ; 3; )

I haven’t heard from you in awhile. I’m glad your back!

I hope you future days get a little quieter!

Profile

Bio

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
