drank Golden Monkey by Teaism
3 tasting notes

Wiry, lightly oxidized black tea with lots of golden tips. Golden is great word to describe this tea: a honeyed aroma is prominent, with undertones of hay and quince. Reddish brown color in the cup. With careful brewing, can be brewed twice, but initial brew should be less than boiling. This review is for the 2012 harvest.

Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

I’ve been an inveterate tea drinker since I was 8. As a perfume aficionado, I focus heavily on aroma, and mainly stick to unflavored blacks and oolongs. I do drink tisanes as a late night alternative to caffeine.
