Golden Monkey

Organic Black Tea

Organic

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. Note - the organic variant is hard to get and can be out of stock quite frequently. We recommend stocking up if you, like us - love this tea.

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.

My favorite tea with a kick

I love the flavor of this tea. It has a bit of a chocolaty note to it and it packs a nice caffeine punch. This one really gets me going in the morning!

Nice smooth black tea

I am glad I ordered a sample of this to try before I plunged into a full price purchase. I love Earl Grey, and I don't think this will replace it. But, this is an excellent, clean tasting, true black tea. I did taste the rich chocolate tones as a pleasant aftertaste. Very sweet naturally - did not need much honey and I skipped the cream. This a is nice change in my tea rotation.
