From Pleasures of Tea

Golden Monkey is a black tea from the Fujian Province of China.

Golden Monkey is a type of Panyang Congou, a family of black teas first produced in the mid-1800’s primarily for export to Europe and which are well-known for their appealing aromas, smooth body, and sweet flavor.

This tea has a curly leaf style with golden tips that yields a sublime medium-bodied, sweet, smooth copper infusion with wonderfully aromatic notes of chocolate and fruit.

I open the pouch and the leaves are curly and it smells somewhere between honey and caramel, both of which are typical of Golden Monkey teas I’ve had before.

The color after brewing is this wonderful coppery color. It’s a slightly malty and sweet tea. Honey seemed prominent with a slight almost raisin flavor in the background. The caramel I smell is nowhere to be found after brewing.

It’s considerably better than the Teavana version, which always seems to sweet for me. Golden Money style teas are typically not my favorite, but so far this is the best of the bunch I’ve had. I’m still not sure if I want any more of it, though.

If Golden Monkeys are your thing, this is one to try out.
