drank Golden Monkey by Teavana
2264 tasting notes

I am going to have to decupboard this one now! I am awaiting a large Harney and Sons order and decided to finish off some teas that were nearly gone.

I had just enough leaves for one pot of this, and it was timely as I was sorely in need of a good cuppa. After crunching numbers on computer all morning, I looked out and saw rain falling on a bit of laundry out on the line, and had to run out and rescue them. It was a bit chilly for shorts and a t-shirt, especially in the rain. What makes everything all better? TEA!

This is an excellent tea, though it is simply not Harney and Sons Golden Monkey. It is very good, and I always drink this one with milk and sugar, while I ALWAYS take H&S with no additions. The aroma is just like H&S, but alas, the flavor is not. It also costs far more than H&S.

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…
