drank Golden Monkey by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

Golden, golden, golden! I am having golden cravings: first Golden Mudan from Harney, then Yunnan Golden Buds from Samovar, and now Harney’s Golden Monkey! The “Golden” profile is my equal favorite along with the roasty chocolatey sometimes smoky Keemun-esqe profile. Even more delightful is when they converge like in Golden Snail, but we won’t go there!!

Anyway! I think this Golden Monkey is my favorite one. It’s light and honeyed, and has a strength that doesn’t compete with the golden wonderment. It’s like magic!

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
