Another cup of the afternoon…..
I have some very interesting samples from Upton. This is the first of about three, I think. I love Golden Monkey, so I thought this would be a perfectly fun choice for me.
The leaves are long and there are some golden leaves. The scent of the dry leaves is earthy and of dark cocoa. Brewed up it very much reminds me of the black dragon pearl teas. Dark cocoa notes, definitely toasty. Not as sweet as the Golden version, but still very good. I am not sure I need this and my black dragon pearl tea, but it was definitely worth a taste.
Usual mug method.
