For a person who says that this tea is good but not wonderment and cartwheels – I sure have been drinking it often enough!!! It’s so perfect for mornings at work. It’s gentle with me, but gives me that extra little nudge to get going, and it tastes great (at 200 – I’m getting more caramel and chewy. Then milky. Mmmmm).
LauraR helped me realize that Golden Monkey is from the Yunnan region, but is not a Yunnan tea per se. It is a smooth light(er) tea, whereas a classic Yunnan is the one with the pepper and more assertive character. I was expecting the Monkey to be a Horse!!
Now that I am enjoying the monkey as the Golden Monkey that he is, I am very satisfied. The monkey is getting a little nudge upwards in rating :)
