drank Golden Monkey by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

Oh boy! It took us hours to dig out of the most recent snow storm because the street plow pushed all the snow into our driveway! I needed something lovely and gentle after I got to work (3 hours late!)! Golden Monkey fit the bill beautifully. Sweet honeyed elixir! I love you! Almost done my second steep, and going for a third.

It has been out of stock for a little while but they said they are looking for some! I hope they find it soon because I only have about half a tin remaining. I think I am just going to buy a poind next time. This is a “best ever no-fail” tea for me!

Out of stock, again? Cry! Ration measures in effect!

Yeah, I was going to put this on my last Harney order but they were out of stock. It is okay though because this is the reason I ordered Emperor’s Red which I adore.

How would you compare this tea with Tea Etc.’s Golden Monkey which is one of my favorites? I may have to try this one.

Dan – it’s a little less mellow and a little more honeyed. There’s more THERE there, which I appreciate! Teas etc GM is great, maybe even finer than Harney’s, but I like Harney’s better.

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
