Strong, but not too strong, and with a lovely sweet finish. Can’t ask for a better Golden Monkey!

Almost a Darjeeling, but usually less expensive. Hurray for Nepal! I think I got the infusion time a bit high this go round, but was only a bit short of inspiring.

2:30 seems to be the magic time for me but I always put in the water just before boiling. That seems to bring the magic.

Of course, it’s brilliant. Helps that I’ve visited. :-) I think the infusion time should be a little less next time. I don’t remember what Lucky and I figured out for the magical time.

It was 2 – 2:30 and very heaping teaspoons if I recall correctly. I’ve got 3lbs of this coming tomorrow… I’ll figure it out again!

Quite nice. Maybe a little shorter infusion time next time. Is going quite well with some Marilyn Keiser pipe organ music. :-)

As usual, it kept getting better the longer I left it in (think >15 min.). When it gets as black as engine oil, it’s about ready. :-) The only downside is that it’s not as warm by that point. I wonder if they’d let me bring a tea warming stand and candle to work…

Preparation

Always tasty and relaxing, never particularly inspiring. Could have gone for a slightly longer infusion this time.

My dad decided to add mint to the infusion. I would have preferred it without, but it was still pretty good.
