Nut-tastic green tea! Blessed to end the holiday with a trip to TehKu in Dublin. If you’re ever near Columbus, OH, you MUST stop at TehKu. It will not disappoint.
The tea smells like a sugar cookie. The strongest flavor was the coconut, but both the walnut and pineapple were present. I’d like to try this again when I have more time to savor. I almost bought some, but decided the teas I ordered on Della Terra for Black Friday were enough for right now. I need to have some self control!
After enjoying the sample of Moon Festival, I ordered this delicious wintery tea. It reminded me of Della Terra’s Candy Cane tea from last winter and I was transported to a winter wonderland. They did not have this one available to take home, but had another that was so similar I can’t taste the difference :) So of course I bought it!
After lunch, we headed to Dublin. Stopped at a great used/overstock bookstore on the way. In Dublin, we had to check out the TehKu tea shop there. We enjoyed this experience much more than Zen-Cha. They had this delicious tea as a sample for the day. After tasting it, I knew I needed to take some home. The man working told me that he had just sold the last bag. I was devastated. But this story must have a happy ending…
And it did. I found a few bags hiding by the register :) My day was made. This tea reminds me of the little cakes made for the Moon Festival. Yum! Can’t wait for my lunch break to make a cup!
The dry Sencha, toasted rice and corn are powdered with Matcha and have a vegetal/grainy aroma. The lime-green infusion has the toasty aroma and flavor of grains, a bit sweeter in taste, less vegetal than some greens. More brothy in subsequent infusions; the Matcha diminishes, of course, but the remaining Sencha remains smooth and tasty. A keeper!
This is a delightfully rich and satisfying tea. It’s smoky, a bit malty, full-bodied, and complete within itself. Near the end of my cup I added a bit of honey and milk, which did not detract from the tea, but really didn’t add anything. I would drink this again, hot and golden. Golden Monkey seems to be the tea-drinker’s equivalent to a single-malt scotch.
TehKu is a local company with a wonderful tea-house, and I know that they do mail-order for those who live outside the area. No affiliation.
