drank Golden Monkey by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

This morning is a happy, happy morning because the Monkey is back in my cupboard! Horray! I think this latest year’s harvest is a tad gutsier than the last one I had, and I am not complaining. It’s still completely sweet and lovely and and has a wonderful syrupy quality. A delight. I’ll tell you this much – I will NOT be using this monkey for iced tea. It’s too, too delicious and perfect and again, in my top five teas (I bet about 10 teas are in my top five teas ;)

I’ve made the acquaintance of many wonderful monkeys, but Harney’s Golden Monkey is my bestie.

I love that you have ten teas in your top five teas! I agree, gutsier, richer, and definitely in my top five as well, along with the other…nine.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
