Tonight was magical. A warm sunny spring day with no wind. A mid-western cyclist dream. A “hilly” ride, with the smell of freshly cut grass and lots of flowering trees. Wind and sunshine on my face! Yep, I was already in heaven and then I had some of this tea. Now, I am sitting here with everyone in bed enjoying a quite house and a warm cup of tea. Can I hit repeat on this day?

This tea is smooth and hearty. I get sweet potato with a bit of what I like to say is a “meaty” finish. There is no astringency. The last part of the sip also has a hint of sweet. This is delicious. I received this tea from ashleyelizabeth in a swap. I was intrigued to try this because I started my loose leaf tea habit with the Teavana’s version of Golden Monkey. I will have to try them side by side. I am curious to see how my perception of that tea has changed. Thank you ashleyelizabeth for passing this along!

Although I haven’t gotten any teas from Teavana in a while, I remember at one time buying their Golden Monkey, and it was very good! From what you described, this Teavivre Golden Monkey sounds like it tastes just as good or better. Yes, you should definitely try them side-by-side and see how they compare! (I will look forward to your review!:-)

I started drinking tea while on a 4 month long cycling trip through South America. It seemed to always be a great way to warm up when I was cold and it was always available everywhere. Mate was the big tea of choice down there and it was also a great way to get to know people. When I returned home, my sister introduced me to Teavana and this launched me into the realm of loose leaf tea. I am still new to this wonderful world, but so far I am loving it.

I am open to swapping. If you see something in my cupboard just message me and we can try to work something out!

90-100 – love, love, love must have around always or as much as possible
80 – 90 – Like, could restock
70 – 80 – If some happened into my cupboard I would drink it but will probably never seek it out.
60 – 70 – Meh, will finish the sample but don’t need to drink this again.
Below 60 – Nope not for me.
