From Happy Lucky's Tea House

The tea term ‘monkey’ in China refers to the fuzzy, golden down on the leaves. The beautifully twisted golden leaves are almost as wonderful to look at as to taste. The golden down provides texture and smoothness to the brew. The flavor is uplifting; it is a full bodied brew with honey sweetness and a very pleasant aftertaste. Golden Monkey is also known as ‘Panyong Wang’ the king of high grade black teas.

I do like a nice chocolatey golden monkey tea, and this is an excellent example. I probably used more leaf than I needed, but I tend to brew strong cups of tea in the morning, and I was very happy with the flavor it produced. Is this a cup of tea or a chocolate malt milkshake? Well, the temperature would be different, but the taste is about the same. As this cup starts out as a malty piece of chocolate, it blends into slight bitter dark chocolate as an aftertaste. I’m not sure I have ever had an example of Golden Monkey that I liked so much. This is one to savor until it’s gone and purchase again when I’m passing through Fort Collins.
