Many cups of delicious black tea doused with cream lie in my immediate future, as I am recovering from two weeks of trudging through ice, snow, and antarctic cold to locate a suitable abode. To celebrate the end of that interesting but all too exhausting process, I decided that I should drink only delicious black comfort teas for the rest of the day. I was debating where to begin, and the winner ended up being Tazo Golden Monkey.
I love this tea. I truly do. It has all of the wonderfulness of caramel—minus the sweetnesss! That may sound strange, since many people think of caramel and sugar as intimately linked. In fact, they are not, as I have tried some cheeses which manage to convey a caramel flavor without being sweet at all.
This stuff is great, and when I get to the bottom of my 4 ounce bag—and I shall!—I’ll definitely be ordering some more. A truly delectable flavor coming all from the tea, no additives whatsoever. I really do appreciate le thé pour le thé! The fewer the bells and whistles the better, in my Teeweltanschauung.
My favorite Yunnan tea, hands down. I do believe that a second cup is in order!
