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

I’m so glad this has a good home. It wasn’t for me so I’m super happy you like it!

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
