From Golden Moon Tea

Fluffy, golden tea tips are what give this tea its special flavor. Using the same processing techniques as delicate white teas, Golden Monkey has mellow notes of semi-sweet chocolate and apricots and has a light, smooth finish with hints of pecans. A black tea for those with sophisticated palates.

1) Bring fresh, filtered water to a boil
2) Pour over your tea leaves in a teapot
(1 spoonful of tea per serving)
3) Steep 3 minutes
4) Stir, strain, and enjoy!

Here’s Hoping TTB

Ooo, this is yummy! Rich and chocolatey with a hint of sweetness and a touch of astringency that keeps you going back for one more sip. Definitely wouldn’t mind having this one in my cupboard!

This tea is quite alluring. As I sit at my desk here at work I find myself inexplicably drawn to my mug by it’s light, sweet, & comforting scent. As I sip it, I find myself unable to set it down and devote myself to something else. It won’t let me. It has me in it’s clutches and I cannot break free, nor do I want to.
It’s flavour is such a nice spot of honey with a twinge of fresh sun warmed hay. Golden is absolutely the best way anyone could ever describe it . It tastes golden.
I am thankful to be enjoying it this morning. :)

Drank the last of this at work today. This is a solid Yunnan style black tea. It’s rich, with a hint of chocolate, some nutty goodness, a little sweet, and maybe just a hint of stone fruit hanging around in the background. I really like it, but considering how hard it is to get Golden Moon teas into Canada, I don’t think I will be re ordering it. There are other black teas out there that are just as good, but don’t have a 30.00 (something) shipping charge attached to it.


Oh my, $30?? Did not know that…this is way too much!


I didn’t pay that – I had it “muled” to me, but yes their shipping is insane….


Aaah, yes, ai remember that…lol, now I know why the mule was a necessity :-O


Lol! A tea mule! This gives me a happy!

I’m still sipping my way through Dexter3657 black tea pack. Thanks again for your infinite generosity :-)

I’m surprised to be the first to review this excellent tea.

Yunnan black. So good. Beautiful golden colour, its aroma makes me drool even though I just ate a full plate of penne primavera with lots of extra parmesan cheese. (Burp!)

This tea feels like a sunday dessert. Peach and chocolate syrup, honey drizzle with nutty crumbles on top! Where is the cherry, you ask? In the bowl I’m about to have right after, fresh Bing cherries, yum! (Yep, this Fairy was a hungry one tonight!)

Another hit this tea, thanks again Dexter!

Flavors: Chocolate, Honey, Nuts, Peach


Dinner sounds great, happy that you liked this tea. This is one that I should be drinking. :))


I’m obsessed with Golden Monkey. My supply came from Tazo, and it is very, very good.
