drank Golden Monkey by Teavana
2270 tasting notes

I own it, so I need to drink it. This is not even close to the honeyed, golden, caramel goodness of Harney and Sons Golden Monkey which is divine with no additions at all. Today I decided to start whittling my supply of Teavana GM by using it as a breakfast tea. I took it with a little sugar and it made a nice enough breakfast tea – not strong by any means but a decent cup to have along with my toast and jelly, which was extra extra good toast because it was my daughter’s fresh whole wheat Buttermilk Bread toasted in my new Breville Smart Grill and Griddle, so it was just like the toast from the Greek diner where EVERYONE around here goes for breakfast!

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about eight years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
