A sweet cocoa fragrance emerges from the bag and the leaves exhibit a color spectrum of dark brown to auburn. The liquor has the soft, rich sweetness of a bittersweet cocoa and imparts a savory lingering aftertaste. A very likable, self-standing tea with plenty of golden tips and wiry leaves sought after by tea aficionados.

I absolutely love this tea! I was extremely upset when a mall tea shop got brought out and I no longer knew where to get Golden Monkey from. This Golden Monkey is delicious, although not strong enough to get a third cup out of the leaves like I used to.
I used to work for a mall chain tea store that sold Golden Monkey and it was one of the only plain black teas that I absolutely adored. I had been craving it and was trying to track some down since they aren't open anymore, and found it here. I'm so happy! If you want a smooth, flavorful black tea with personality, please please give Golden Monkey a try. And the price was good compared to what I was used to. Thank you for carrying it and please please PLEASE don't get rid of it!
I love this tea and it is a new favorite. It has a smooth taste while still maintaining a deep flavor profile of black tea. Highly recommended.
For me, Golden Monkey is the only black tea to drink. I got started on it from the 'mall tea' brand that went out of business. After trying a few brands, I found The Whistling Kettle and enjoy this Golden Monkey even more! A great black tea flavor with that cocoa finish. A must-have every morning.
I have been purchasing Golden Monkey black tea for some time, and it's one of my favorites. The taste is full, bright, with lots of body. I prefer black teas, and I create my own blends. Golden Monkey blends well with Darjeeling. Thank you for selling fine teas!
