Delicious with my bagel :) Very robust and raisiny and sweet. Nothing like Golden Monkey, but I love it for what it is (his rough and tumble cousin). Three steeps of goodness.

Which Golden Monkey do you think is the best? I’m trying to figure out which company I should order that particular tea from.

I looooooooove Teas Etc’s Golden Monkey, but I’m a curious one, and my next order is going to be trying Silk Road Tea’s Golden Monkey. I tasted Adagio’s Golden Monkey many moons ago and liked it too.

Thanks! I think I may start with Adagio since it is not a big financial commitment and work my way up.

I remember enjoying it a lot, and also making INCREDIBLE iced tea with it. My husband still talks about it as the perfect iced tea :)

Awesome! My husband is an iced tea addict.

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
