I recently got this as a sample. I like assams in general but have never tried the golden monkey, so I was curious as to how I would like it. I brewed it up with a little bit of milk and sugar, as my usual way to drink black tea. I definitely noticed a bit more sweetness than I normally get from assams, which I think must have been from the golden monkey. All in all, it was a pleasant cup of tea, but not a particularly stand-out one.
