drank Golden Luo by Harney & Sons
1798 tasting notes

These leaves are neat-o! I’m showing my age when I say that, aren’t I? But they really are nice to look at. The big shocker came when I poured the tea. Wow, that is DARK! Well, darker than I expected this to be when it had so many golden pieces in it. And it smells like……coffee? Just a bare hint of coffee, but probably what I am detecting is the unsweetened cocoa present in lots of Chinese black teas. Still, that is a surprise for me. This was sweet enough to drink with no additions, and while not as good as Golden Monkey to me, it might be nice if you have a day where Golden Monkey is just a little too sweet and honeyed for you. A very good tea.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.
