This golden monkey is so good, especially considering the price comparative to other golden monkey teas. The dried tea smells fresh, almost like hot cornbread. the leaves are long and twisted with a lot of gold buds, and golden tea hair left behind in the tin. the brewed tea is dark gold, and smells very musky and a little chocolatey. the taste is like a good quality black tea without any bitterness, only a bold and rich taste. I was surprised by how unique it tastes, making it hard to pick words to describe it. i can say that I will keep my big tin full of this tea as long as presto carries it

great flavored green. the flavor is a little strong, making it hard to taste the green tea but still a great cup. be careful to use cooler (175) water and to steep for no more than 3 minutes, as it can and will get bitter. but when steeped correctly, a great tea for any time
Honestly, I love white peony. My friend had the red fruits white tea from presto and enjoyed it, so I figured why not try the black fruits? Well I steeped it with a little extra tea since whites are so subtle, but honestly, it still disappointed me. I tried different temps and times, but honestly it was just not that good. I’d rather buy some of the expensive white peony from the shop downtown than save a few bucks and drink this kinda flavored warm water.
Very delicious, earthy, pu-erh. Certainly an acquired taste, but I highly recommend it.
