This was another one of the samples that I added to check out GTC’s basic black collection. Eh, it is what it is. I’m trying to remember this from earlier this morning — it was a hectic day. It was a bit on the bolder side, but nothing stands out in my memory. What keeps popping into my head is that it’s a wannabe Golden Monkey. I have more that I’ll sample again in a more zen-like state of mind and hopefully will be able to write a decent review. 2 decent steeps occurred. NE

It’s English Breakfast Xtra Fancy, same grade as the Irish Breakfast. Nothing special, just one of those staple tea’s you gotta carry. Our Golden Monkey is awesome though.

Ahahha, I guess it does sound like I want to be a golden monkey from that context. You’ve got me! I want to jump from one tree to another picking out tea leaves and peaches. I mean err bananas.

And now I’m kicking myself for not adding a sample of Golden Monkey. Ah, there shall be a next time :)

Proud all-around nerd, designer, fibromyalgia manager, and Assistant Library Director/Creative Director.

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

I’m quite loose when it comes to tea prep. I also ended up using Steepster to find my “daily” teas which I have – and so don’t rate as many as I used to. And am not active here any more (because y’all would get tired of me drinking the same teas every single day – day in and day out).

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.
