This is another reliable, forgiving “great to drink at work” tea! I’ve been drinking this a lot. I brought a big bag as my “stash” to keep at work and it’s become very popular with my co-workers too. It smells so wonderful, brews up beautifully in the water from our water cooler’s hot water spigot and it can handle oversteeping!
It’s also a good “palate-cleanser” after a heavy lunch. Very refreshing and sweet—like a rainshower in the summer surrounded by hothouse blooms.
I’m really liking these florally teas, lately! I think this is a nice twist on your standard Earl Grey. The rose and jasmine really complement the bergamot. It’s like drinking a lovely soup bouquet. So, If you don’t like flowers in your tea, I’d say steer clear. :)
Also, it’s kind of heavy on the rose and reminds me of Turkish Delight.
I’m getting to the bottom of my tin, which means I will have to get some more of the fantastic tea. It is one of the best teas I have drank. I find little nuances every time I drink it. The smell is like sugar and raisins and it smells sweet. The taste is hard to describe as it depends on the steep time, temp of water, and how much tea you use. It is slightly sweet and tingly on the tip of my tongue. It almost has a caramel taste and a light mouthfeel.( to me coffee is a heavy mouthfeel). I’m getting a nutty like aftertaste (pecan?). Just a great tea.
Drinking this complex tea makes me wonder if monkeys actually picked it. It also makes me wonder what other companies Golden Monkey tastes like and do I really want to try them wondering if I will be let down or not. Its not a brisk or robust tea, its a fantastic tea.
I’m spending lots of time with this tea. It has a sugar raisin type of smell to it. My first taste this morning gave me a sweetness that coated my tongue. I have tried a 5 minute steep, but a 4 minute one brings out more flavors and complexities. I can understand why this tea rated a second place and I’m no expect on tea by any means. I may drink this tea all day and then lament over having drank it all this evening. Such a warm and comforting tea.
Now this is a very nice tea. It has a copper red hue and smells very earthy. It has a sweet finish and is smooth with no bitterness at all. This tea actually has a caramel character which I have never tasted before. This is not a brisk robust breakfast tea. This is a tea to sit and linger over. Overall, one of the best teas I have ever drank. I followed directions on the packet for my first cup, but I intend to experiment a little with regards to temp and steep time in the future.
This is a refreshing change from the black teas I’ve been drinking all week!
I used the last of my 1oz. tin (about 2.5 heaping teaspoons in my 12oz. mug). The scent is super tangy and sweet—very “pink”. The tea itself is a pinkish amber and very “downy” because of the feathery white leaves. I’m tasting mostly rose petals and a little bit of strawberry. The coconut appears only as a hint of sweetness. The aftertaste reminds me a little of Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries® cereal!
I think I may order more of this, eventually—but not for awhile because there are so many other teas out there to try!
This is a nice, light, fruity tea. I really enjoy the combination of strawberries and roses and coconut. I think the story aptly describes how the taste of this tea “feels” – wistful, romantic, light-hearted- like a lace-trimmed valentine’s note. It smells wonderful too—floral and tangy-sweet. But, when I first received this, I overenthusiastically drank several mugs first thing in the morning—on an empty stomach—and it made me really queasy! Too much of a good thing, I guess.
I wasn’t sure if I’d like this tea because ginger and lemon can both be very strong flavors and sometimes I just can’t handle them. This one is mellow with that nice zing that ginger adds to the back of your throat. It has just enough flavor for me to wake me up but doesn’t get to be too much halfway through the cup. I used really hot water on this because I thought it was black tea (woops). Didn’t seem to hurt it much though. Yummy!
