drank Golden Monkey by Teavana
42 tasting notes

I just entered Tea-Ecstasy!!! Made a little blend of 2tsp of Golden Monkey and 1tsp of Citron Sonata. The Sonta takes a little of the edge off the Monkey and boy is it GOOOO-OOOD. I should note that I steeped in 16oz of water.

Preparation
3 min, 30 sec

Started the day with some Gunpowder today. Even though I have much more experience with Hodgdon H380 gunpowder in my 22-250 handloads…this gunpowder is almost as warm and smokey as squeezing off a round at 300 yards.

drank Jasmine Oolong by Teavana

I have a Jasmine Oolong, Moroccan Mint combo job going here. Not too shabby, but a little weird. I am giving it a low rating, it might be growing on me, not sure yet.

This one came as a sample. I like it, don’t love it. The flavor isn’t very strong even when I steeped it longer than normal.

My first tea and maybe my favorite. This has turned into my afternoon blend about an hour after lunch. Nice and relaxing. Tip Top Tea.

drank Golden Monkey by Teavana

I just returned from Teavana with this little number. Steeps to a deep copper color and even straight up is the B-O-M-B my fellow tea players.

My sales person said I could make a “Naughty Monkey” if I added some milk and sugar. I can imagine that being killer, but I am drinking for health benefits AND taste, so I don’t want to go that route. Ill-behaved primates aside, this is one good tea.

drank Gunpowder by Adagio Teas

Quickly becoming my favorite. Only got it as a sample but have pretty much cashed that already. It has a smokey type flavor I totally didn’t expect from a green tea. Great straight up but even nicer with just a tiny bit of sugar.
