If ever I found that it was impossible to get Harney and Sons Golden Monkey again, this would be a really close second that I would be happy to buy. Golden Mudan has the sweetness and honey notes of Golden Monkey, but lighter and not as full-bodied. I don’t really get roasty or toasty from it, but it has delightful charms of its own. It is still absolutely delicious! It was particularly good today with the fudgy brownies we baked and served with sugared strawberries from a local farm. Yummy!

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…
