Thanks to Soccer Mom for my Golden Monkey taste championship – Adagio vs Teas Etc. The verdict: Adagio… The Adagio’s version is much bolder, malty-er. In fact, I find that I may have a new mission: which vendor supplies the “best” golden monkey?

Sure the award-winning Teas, Etc had more golden leaves and brewed to a darker liquor but where was the taste?

Ooh, I had dismissed Golden Monkey because I’ve only tried tleafT’s version which tasted like nothing. I need to keep an eye out for other suppliers of this!

SoccerMom

I totally agree with you. I like Adagio’s better not that Tea’s Etc is bad it’s just not as flavorful and I like lots of bold flavor. As you can see I am on this Golden Monkey mission (you mentioned) myself so let me know if you find a better one. :)

I loved the Golden Monkey from Teas etc so this means I’m going to have to try adagio’s

SoccerMom

Yes Dan try it!

Ricky

Never been a fan of golden monkey, but good to know =]

SoccerMom- Maybe when TeasEtc. mailed you its Golden Monkey the batch of tea wasn’t as fresh “as usual” as people really rave about the Teas, Etc. version?
Also, even though many vendors sell a tea called “Golden Monkey”, there seems to be a wide range of flavors and quality between vendors….

Bio

Just a few months ago the only tea I drank was hot lipton tea at work, an occasional mint tea, and sweet iced tea.. Then my daughter got me some loose leaf teas for Christmas and then, my tea addiction began…..

And what better way to get lots of dessert flavors w/o the calories?

I prefer my tea with a tinge of sugar. Is that cheating? But to me , the combination of sugar and tea is like salt and cooking- both bring out the natural flavors.

My tea drinking has evolved into a set routine: a breakfast blend in the AM, some flavored blacks during the day, late afternoon or evening flavored green/white, herbal (usually spicy, chai inspired) at night.

Not into unflavored greens/whites yet. Just started appreciating unflavored blacks and am thinking that smoky teas may become my favorite…
When I am not drinking tea, I am working as an engineer, reading, watching some of the better TV shows (like Damages and Breaking Bad), practicing my yoga, cooking, gardening, and spoiling my two miniature poodles (Coco and Timmy)…
