drank Golden Monkey by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

I’m back at work today (cry!) but I am trying to make it as pleasant as possible :) I brought my Breville back in, my brewer mug is in the place of honor, and I have a brand new tin of Harney and Sons Golden Monkey! Eeee eee eeeeeeeeeeee!

Ooooooh this is so good. Lightly sweet and caramely and good teaish. I’ve missed this!!!! Gentle and multiple steep friendly on a day when I will appreciate the comfort of tea all day. I am sooooo looking forward to the milky mouthfeel of the second steep plus!!!

I completely enjoyed my my milk and sugar tea extravaganza during my break, but I am now ready to get back into my plain tea daily habit!

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 30 sec

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
