Everyone MUST try it. There’s no hype around this tea. Bold, sweet, milky. By far one of the best black teas I have ever had. Put down whatever you’re drinking right now. Order this and sit at your front door. You won’t be disappointed.

4g tea
12oz water
Dark amber color. Aromas of malt and sweet potato. Very sweet aroma. The taste was a bit less than than the aroma was leading on. Not as strong of the flavor malty sweet potatoe flavor that was lead on. Not bad though.

This tea is interesting – good interesting. Tastes like very smooth Yunnan, but the end has a bit of….cream. And a bit of astringency…but the flavors are separate so it is not a spoiled cream taste.

Finished off my supply this weekend. Will be buying more soon.

I really should probably post more tasting notes so that I remember these teas.

Golden Monkey isn’t quite as robust as my typical morning teas, but it makes up for it with its caramel character and mildly sweet finish. It also extends into well into the afternoon, meaning that I often end up drinking it until it’s time for dinner. I can usually get three steeps out of the leaves, though I use a little more than recommended on the package. Delicious.
