From Red Blossom Tea Company

Gathered April 2010 from the Wuyi Mountains of Northern Fujian. Fully enzymatically oxidized gold-tipped leaves and buds, crafted by hand into the shape of a monkey’s paw.

Red amber color, light for a black tea, exceptionally smooth and tannin free, and best of all Ecocert-certified organic.

Water Temperature: 205°, or near boiling

Brewing Instructions: Use 2 teaspoons (3 for a medium sized pot). Rinse tea for 1 second. Discard rinse water. Steep for 2 minutes. May be infused multiple times.

Good morning Steepster. I am doing okay aside from having a fractured finger which is really annoying and somewhat painful!

Anyway this is a good tea for consolation purposes. ;-) Today it’s a sipdown. I will certainly get more someday, it’s a great Golden Monkey. Today I am really getting such nice malty notes.

This is a bit too light bodied to be the tea for a work morning, but in the afternoon or on a weekend, it is excellent. It tastes like toast, in the best possible way. No bitterness or astringency, just smooth, golden toasty goodness. It makes me happy to just think of this tea. And at the price, I can afford to stock up. I get two steeps also, which is good for a light tea, making it an even more excellent value.

This is a very light, mellow black tea with no noticeable astringency. Flavors of toasted grain and a hint of earthiness make it a nice “warm” cup. Steeps well twice, a third steeping unfortunately results in very little flavor. I don’t recommend sweetener as it could easily overpower the tea rather than enhance, and there isn’t anything to mask with sweetness. Every now and again I will add a splash (about 1 Tbs) of milk not cream just for a different flavor.
