135 tasting notes

It’s the 18th day of Advent already? Time for another tea from Sara’s calendar!

This tastes like “golden” to me! I also notice honey and cinnamon notes. It kind of feels rich and light at the same time. I can taste the black tea also. I’m really impressed with this one.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Honey, Tea

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Ya, Golden Monkey is a great tea. I often get cocoa, apricot/peachy/stonefruity notes, and sometimes sweet potato, though brewed Western usually it’s the cocoa, honey, and spice that stands out me. So sweet and smooth, I don’t think I’ve ever had a hint of astringency from this stuff.

I have enjoyed various teas most of my life, but have recently started exploring higher-end teas. Still, plain houjicha (loose-leaf or bagged) makes me feel like I’m in Japan.
