From Simpson & Vail

A superior Yunnan! These beautifully formed, long, twisted, golden tippy leaves brew to brown leaves with a floral aroma and a golden amber cup. The tea is very smooth with a brisk flavor.

Not my favorite example of Golden Monkey, but still very drinkable. The first steep got more chocolatey with each sip as it cooled. The second steep is a bit disappointing , its still smooth, malty, and chocolatey, but its just a muted version of the first steep. I’ll try using more leaf and see if the second steep holds up, this doesn’t seem like overleafing will become a detriment to taste. While this tea is quite good, I might try a taste test beside the SV Tippy Yunnan to see which I prefer more.
