It took me a loooooong time to like this tea. I was naive. I didn’t understand why it wasn’t bold and bitter and kick-your-teeth-in strong, no matter how long I steeped it. Needless to say, now that I’m firmly ensconced in the world of loose leaf tea, I can sit back and appreciate it, and it’s very pleasing indeed.

The main thing that turned me off of it initially was an overpowering muskiness. It reminded me of years of half-remembered colognes. Quite odd and disarming.

Now I like it as I realize that aspect is mostly in the aroma. The flavor is predominantly plum or fig with a strong taste of peaches lingering on the tip of the tongue. And it’s very, very malty.

I don’t think this one holds up too well to multiple infusions. Strange, because I’d assume it would, given the (apparent) quality of the leaves and the fact that they’re almost all gold in color. There are other factors. I’m sure. I’m still naive. But I like this Golden Monkey.

One of my favorite teas. Love it! Try it with a bit of honey.
