Thanks so much for the teas, Nicole! I got an awesome package just for shipping and I super appreciate it. If it wasn’t for such nice Steepsterers, I wouldn’t have been able to try nearly as many teas that I have. It says something when I mostly organize my teas by who has sent them to me… and I can usually actually remember WHO sent them to me! :D
The leaves here lead to a lovely dark amber brew. It’s light for a golden monkey – probably the lightest one I’ve ever sipped! The flavor is more like one of those teas that are all golden leaves – like Yunnan Sourcing’s delicious Imperial Mojiang. The flavor isn’t chocolate at all but a light molasses/honey/maple syrup maybe hints of stone fruits. So delicious. Two excellent steeps.
Steep #1 // two teaspoons // 10 minutes after boiling // 2-3 minute
Steep #2 // just boiled // 3-4 minute
