The Meaning of Tea Golden Monkey

This is an organic black tea that was sourced from Yunnan Province in China. The dry leaves were really beautiful to look at. They were various shades of golden brown with a curly and slightly fuzzy appearance. I made this tea in my Breville One-Touch Tea Maker with 212 degree water for four minutes. The liquor was a deep reddish mahogany.

This tea was smooth and malty with pronounced notes of citrus. I’ve never experienced such a strong fruit flavor in an unflavored black tea. There was a dry finish to each sip but very little astringency. It wasn’t as robust as some Yunnans that I have tried but it was crisp and refreshing. I would definitely recommend this tea.
