drank Golden Monkey by Teas Etc
33 tasting notes

As a long time fan of Adagio’s golden monkey, I thought I’d try this version. It was decent, but didn’t quite pack the punch that I was anticipating. Next time, I will try to make it a bit stronger.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 15 sec

I tried both and Teas, Etc. was “blah” compared to Adagio’s…

Will

Yeah, that’s what I was afraid of. I was hoping I had just brewed this one incorrectly the first time… oh well…

Lori

Actually the leaves are different – the Teas etc is more gold and the Adagio’s is a combo of black and gold. Maybe that made a difference in the tea taste?

This one def. has more gold
