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.

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.

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.
