Golden Monkey

Black Tea

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.

Just as Fabulous as I remembered!

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!

Wonderfully smooth

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.

My Favorite Tea

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.

Golden Delicious!

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!

Rich, grassy, smooth

The organic Golden Monkey is really nice. While East Frisian Blend is my every morning go to brew, the Golden Monkey is a close second. The nose is sweet and grassy, like a freshly mowed field of alfalfa hay, and on the palate, a creamy, frothy mouthfeel redolent of chocolate. It lacks a certain maltiness that I like in black tea, but is nevertheless a delicious tea.
