Thank you so much for the sale, Ali! I’m always willing to try any of the Monkeys. I expect chocolate but this one seems to be pure maltiness. I used one heaping teaspoon as suggested but I’ll have to try two next time. Maybe an eight minute wait was too long as well. I love malty teas but this isn’t really what I expect from a Golden Monkey. It’s sweet, honey. Not much else to say. This is still a very good black tea but maybe I’ve just had some really good monkeys. This note is for learning for next time, I guess.
Steep # 1// 1 tsp // 8 min after boiling // 3 min
