Striking gold tips on wavy ink black leaves. Enticing nectar-like brew. A cut above.

This is a tea that I bought because when I saw it I went, “Ooh, I’ve never had that before! Impulse buy!” (Now that I think of it, that’s the reason why I buy most of my teas…)

The dry leaves are a pretty mix of black and gold curls, which according to my research is what most Golden Monkey tea looks like. I honestly didn’t care much for the taste at first, but it has really grown on me. I’m still not sure how to describe it. Very rich, a little bitter, and a little… meaty? If such a thing can be? I can’t think of a more solid thing to compare it to because I don’t think I’ve ever tasted something like this before. But it’s good! There’s a bitterness to the aftertaste that reminds me of coffee, but a little more mineral.

Also, it resteeps like a billion times. Well, it resteeps at least 4 times, and by then I usually want to move on to something else.
