drank Golden Monkey by Teas Etc
230 tasting notes

This was my morning cup on my way to work. I really enjoyed lingering with this tea during my (hour ugh,) commute. Many of the previous tasters have already gone over this in great detail. The leaves of this tea are fluffy and beautiful! The mouth feel is soft. The flavors are all muted but slightly sweet. A REAL WINNER! I gave this tea 100!!!

On to the tea. I received this generous sample from SoccerMom. The leaves are quite stunning and fuzzy. The liquor is silky and finishes on a sweet note. I distinctly taste the spicy/peppery note but the malty flavor is absent. There is a slight earthy quality to the tea that I am enjoying immensely. My first cup was finished rather quickly, but the second steep cooled to room temperature. Both steeps were unique and pleasurable. I’m sure I could squeeze out a third steep, but it’s almost time to head home from the office. Yay! I might have to pick up where I left off today. This is a great tea to have on constant standby.

I like all kinds of tea and am open to new things. I am learning about all kinds of new tea and am working on pushing my palate with new tastes.

I am a new Mom to a daughter born 6/14/15. When I was pregnant I lost all desire for tea. Now, my desire for tea, and the ritual it represents, has come back twofold.

I live in Framingham, MA with my daughter, husband, a cranky orange cat and an oversized chihuahua.

I am open to tea swaps from around the world and tea meetups if anyone is in the Greater Boston/ New England area.
