Tasted really medicinal to me. I tried it several times, different steeping times, and really tried to give this one a chance. Even steeped several times it still wasn’t my taste. The flavor was much stronger then I like even with lesser amount. Some part of the ingredients gave it a medicinal smell and flavor. I ended up giving this to another tea lover, hopefully it’s something they like. Hate to waste it as it’s quite expensive tea.

Very smooth and drinkable, but doesn’t have much in the flavor department. Typical leafiness and a bit of butter on the tongue. Having some right now, notice that the astringency is fairly low, but has a nice bite at the end. Was surprised the reviews were so overwhelmingly for it, however, as I have had much nicer teas.

Flavors: Butter, Grass

Looking for a tasty puer blend? This one is up there. Not as good as Lupicia’s puer blend, but this Marmalade Puerh blend is better than Adagios and many others I’ve tried.

It is zesty, tangy citrus, just like a rindy marmalade, candied orange notes, hint of sweet licorice, with an earthy background of puer. The puer isn’t funky and the licorice is really subtle.

However, this is provided you steeped it well – this tea is fussy to brew. It weighs a lot, and if you overleaf you will get something too licorice and sludgy. Best is 6 grams, 10oz water, 3 minutes. No rinse.

A friend at work turned me on to Monkey Paw and I miss it every time I try something else. This is my tea!
I love that it’s organic too

Did you order from them offline?? I placed an order with them but they never sent me a shipping conformation nor did they respond to my e-mail, so i’m a little worried. How long did it take for your tea to arrive?? Thanks — Jim

Another super specimen from California Tea House. I’ve been waiting for this Silver Needle to be in stock and finally got a 4oz bag. I’ll be back for more.

I guess I like monkeys because I’m wild for this tea! This is the first time I’ve heard of it too. Probably the best green tea I’ve ever had and I’ve had a few.

This reminds me of a Silver Needle that I paid 10x this price for from American Tea Room. I wonder…

Yummy! I just recently heard of this company and this is the first tea of theirs I’ve tried. For someone who usually doesn’t go for green tea, this one is so smooth and easy on my stomach compared to others I’ve had. My new favorite green.

This sample i got from ifjuly loong time ago. I dunno why i didnt try it.

Today I decided to run side by side with Golden Monkey by H&S

This tea is lovely. Sweet, flavorful and simply nice. Rich with sweet potatoes and malt but not heavy.
H&S version is heartier, maltier and earthier. its very rich cup but today I think it was too rich for me. And earth flavor distracted me for some reason. some peppery notes emerged as it cooled at the end of the sip.
i resteeped both teas [email protected] Meh. Didnt care for either. Kinda flat and boring.

Im glad i finally tasted both, long overdue.
Thank you ifjuly for the awesome samples you sent me. Still havent finished your endless box ;-)

The best way I can put it is full flavored while being the smoothest, gentlest white I believe I’ve had. I really like the fact that it’s organic as well.

Wow. Probably the best Matcha I’ve had and I’ve had a few. My only complaint is it wasn’t easy to find. I’m happy I know where you are now!

Another one of my favorite teas. I keep exploring other greens then coming back to White Monkey Paw (Bai Mao Hou). I like to see if there’s any greens that I could possibly like more, but White Monkey Paw has a smoothness that seems to be innate and just not duplicated by other green prep methods. I’ve had the White Monkey at Adagio which was excellent as well, but I’m not sure if it’s the original source or what, but the White Monkey Paw from California Tea House is by far my favorite.
