drank Golden Monkey by Premium Steap
1112 tasting notes

Graduation fair today! I had one quick steep before I had to run downstairs and help students all day. It was a good, roasty steep but all too rushed. Ah – next time I will take my time and have a nice bagel with it to make up for it!

Heyes

After a crazy thing like a graduation fair, you’re going to need a nice brew to recover!

You should. After all, this is “Golden Monkey that tastes like a Panyang Congou and goes well with an everything bagel” tea. I think you need a peaceful, reflective moment with a cuppa, a bagel, and schmeer!

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
