drank Golden Monkey by Vital Tea Leaf
2307 tasting notes

I’m having this tea again at the BF’s house. Makes me want to go to the Vital Tea Leaf again but I must resist as my tea budget has already been spent for this month!

Anyway we brewed this western style in a teapot, the color is a dark yellow and the flavor is very smooth, sweet like caramel and baked yams. See previous notes for more info. :)

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

I love tea that tastes like that in the morning! Right now theres a big forest fire again so you open your mouth and get LS! Can hardly see the hills down the street!

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
