After returning home from my errands today, I couldn’t decide which tea to have – the possibilities were endless since I now have milk!!! I perused the tasting notes for a bit and became inspired by JacquelineM so I’m now having Golden Monkey.
This tea smells so malty and delicious once milk is added that I am in love before even tasting it. There is a slight caramel edge to the end of the sip that is so unexpected and lovely. I think Golden Monkey is a perfect breakfast tea for me (even though it is 3pm). Where has Golden Monkey been all of my tea drinking life?
This rating will be boosted because it really needs milk to reach its full potential and I did not have any last time.
Finishing up the last of this tea today….it is alright. After reading reviews about Golden Monkey, I really expected this one to be maltier, fuller, just more of everything. If nothing else this tea makes me want to find that PERFECT Golden Monkey, but sadly this one just isn’t it. I’m slightly adjusting the rating downwards due to this revelation.
