drank Golden Monkey by Adagio Teas
321 tasting notes

“Oh, what a pretty one you are,” I whispered as I opened the bag and peered inside.

This is one of the few teas that just look beautiful dry – tiny little thin curls of black and gold, like tiger stripes.

Steeped, it’s great. It’s a medium-bodied black with a smooth mouthfeel and just a little bit of astringency – just enough, but not too much. On a second steep, the earthiness comes out. I definitely think I’m getting more of this.
