216 Tasting Notes
Another tea I love. See previous notes.
I drank this last night to relax. This is the second teabag I have had of this. I LOVE IT. I LOVE all cucumber teas I have tried For some reason – even though I drank it hot – this tea is very soothing. I liked it so much I went to order it online at the tea forte website. However, shipping is only free at $50.00 and I only wanted this one item. ALAS, I had a brainstorm! I looked on Amazon and they also had the loose leaf. With Amazon Prime I got it shipped to my house for free! YAY!
Has anyone else ordered tea from Amazon? I have purchased other tea forte items (kati cup) from amazon in order to utilize the prime shipping. Looking quickly I noticed some Art of Tea items as well as Teavana and Adagio on Amazon.
Back to this tea – To me this is calm in a cup.
Tea of the morning. Yum. I feel like I am a broken record with this one! It is so good!
This sample came from my liberteas tasting box. It tastes good slightly vanilla and sweet but nothing super memorable.
This is my tea of the afternoon. My tea travel cup is so wonderous at holding a temperature that I made this tea at 6:00 Am this morning and it is still warm, even after sitting in my COLD car for hours and hours.
This tea really is fantastic. The flavors are so light, fruity and comforting. This really is a quality tea and I am thrilled it is in my collection.
I had a small amount of this that has been in the cupboard for some time. This tea is a drinkable, jasmine pearl tea. Nothing remarkable.
After I realized how much I loved this tea yesterday I had to have it again this morning. OH, YUM. This time I got more of a light cinnamon note along with the winter flavors…
WHY OH WHY did I wait so long to try this tea? OHMYGOSH it is so wonderful. THis makes me sad that I am no longer a Handmade Tea subscriber. I had so much tea coming out my ears that it did not make sense for me to keep subscribing. BUT this blend! IT Epitomizes winter! I can almost taste the pine trees.
Caleb hit it out of the park again. This tea is a true delight.
I finished the Golden Monkey I had in my stash this morning and drank it on the way to work. I do love this tea. It has such a nice sweetness.
What other golden monkey teas have you tried and liked?
I REALLY wanted to like this. The other taster’s who tried it LOVE it. My husband LOVED it. However, to me I got a cough syrup like flavor at the end of the sip that I just could not get around. I am not rating this one because I am sure it is me! I am going to wait and give this tea another chance….
