High quality tea but quite expensive. Can easily get two infusions of great tasting tea. Recommend adding teaspoon of Tupelo honey. My favorite of all teas.

Golden Monkey from Adagio Teas

Style: Golden Monkey – Region: Fujian, China

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 6th, 2015

I should preface this by saying that I do not particularly enjoy black tea in general. Usually I drink white and green tea. That being said, I do enjoy this once in a while. The aroma is mild and somewhat nutty. The flavor is full and very smooth with almost no astringency. There are also undertones of nuts (perhaps ha...

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
May. 15th, 2015

The aroma of the delicately curling buds is super rich, with notes of malt, and different layers of woodiness. There are hints of sweet pine sap, cedar, and a pinch of sandalwood, it is very aromatic, not as sweet as some Jin Jun Meis I have experienced, but still pretty intense. The finishing note is a whiff of molas...

I have had this sample of Golden Monkey for awhile. A few years back I tried Adagio teas Golden Monkey and remember enjoying it quite a bit.

This tea really does have a comforting, golden glow about it. It just puts me in a good mood to drink it. I add a small smidge of sugar but it already has a nice sweetness that...

Dec. 21st, 2014

Very enjoyable! This is my favorite tea so far from Simply Good Tea (I've only posted two reviews so far but have tried a few more).

The leaf looks a lot like the Bai Lin Gongfu I just tried from Joseph Wesley: well-formed, very wiry, curly leaves with quite a lot of golden-orange tip. Very aromatic, suggesting dr...

Dec. 15th, 2014

Something fascinating and wonderful...a Keemun of top-quality produced outside the traditional area, yet in an area with a tradition of artisanal black tea production. Seems to combine the best qualities of Keemun with qualities of Fujian gong fu / congou black teas. I saved this tea review for last, from the recent ...

Nov. 25th, 2014

Excellent.

This is the traditional Chinese Lapsang Souchong, subtle, not the British-style stuff with the overwhelming smell of campfire smoke. I love it. I've only ever tried one other Lapsang Souchong on par with this, the Lapsang Souchong Superior Grade from Life In Teacup. This tea was equally exquisite, yet ...

Raisin-like, with a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad, but not something I'd buy for myself. Tried a free sample at the store.

Wow. This is on par with the Da Hong Pao I tried from Life in Teacup.

I was hit with a rich blast of cocoa and hazelnut. It just smelled so good it's hard to describe. Made my mouth water in anticipation.

That first sip was heaven. A decadent balance of maltiness and cocoa undertones. It was sweet like honey, and...

Oct. 23rd, 2014

The liquor brewed to rich nut-brown with a tinge of coppery-gold, and gave off a subdued fragrance suggestive of chocolate and toasted marshmallow. The taste was also subdued but pleasing—a soft floral sweetness. I had brewed a previous cup, steeping for 3 minutes, and I remember the flavor being fuller and more deve...

Aug. 8th, 2014

Okay, so here's the thing with this tea: I bet it's a great example of the kind of tea that it is. It has the bitterness of black tea, but in a way that feels more blended/smooth than most and gives it body. The primary other flavor I seem to identify in this robust tea is a raisin-like aroma and taste, and it has a ra...

Jul. 28th, 2014

Oh my that is a pleasant and heavy aroma, it seems the leaves collected the dense and heavy feeling of fog rather than the wispy one. There are notes of oak wood, molasses, cocoa, and a touch of smoke. It is intense, not sweet, but more like a rich molasses cookie and cocoa powder.

decided to do something a little ...

Method: 1.5 tsp @ 208 degrees in 8 oz, 4 minutes, French Press

Dry Leaf Aroma: Cocoa and light malt

Brewing Aroma: Strongly malty

Flavor: I was really hoping to pick up some of the honey flavor from the description, or at least some sweetness, but this was pretty neutral. I enjoyed the malty flavors, and I...

The aroma is very much so a pine smoke heavy black tea, lots of pine smoke goodness and a rich malt. There are also notes of molasses and roasted peanuts which blends really well with the pine resin and smoke.

The first steep is quite smooth and very light. The taste is subtly sweet with notes of pine sap and sweet ...

I originally had the review for this tea under Yezi's Jin Jun Mei, which is obviously incorrect. I am putting it in its proper place, as well as making an update.

Round 1: This tea has a lovely malty flavor. I wish I could pick out some additional aromas or flavors, but alas, I cannot.

I steeped this at 205 deg...

When I opened the bag of tea and took a deep inhale, I was not immediately impressed. It smelled like tea.

But then I boiled the water and started to brew this, and wow, it's gorgeous. The tea is a lovely amber color and the brewed tea smells exactly like the malted grains used in brewing beer. I mean *exactly*...

The aroma of the dry leaves is sharply sweet and a bit fruity, specifically a bit muscatel, there are strong notes of cocoa, caramelized sugar, orchids, and oak wood. It is a rich and bright aroma that wafts from the leaves, and certainly quite sweet. I would say that the aroma is one of the more sweeter Chinese black ...

The aroma is very fruity, strong notes of juicy plums with a side of roasted peanuts and a faint malt at the finish. I really want to make sure everyone knows this tea is very fruity, almost surprisingly so! It does not smell at all like a flavored tea, but like someone placed a plate of sliced plums right next to the ...

I find this tea a bit thin for my taste, though a decent Chinese black. For reference, I lean more toward the Yunnan blacks. It has a lovely aroma and a fair overall mouth feel.

This tea was a complete surprise. It seems to be out-of-stock and I know it's been in my friend's cupboard for at least a couple years, so who knows how old it was--it was definitely not terribly fresh, yet it was still among one of the best teas I've sampled in a long time. If it's old, then it has certainly aged we...

I like this tea. It has a weird kind of aroma, but it's good overall. The flavor is strong, crisp, and not too bitter. I added cream and sugar. It's interesting that on the package it recommends adding cream and not milk, because I always add cream to my tea.

A wonderful, nuanced black tea with a mild flavor, and complex aroma, also creating nice sensations on the palate.

Dry leaf has a mild but very pleasing aroma suggestive of sweet dried fruit, but fresher and lighter smelling.

Upon brewing, this produces a very dark brown cup with a mellow aroma, yet exquisite fla...

I thought this tea was exquisite and would drink it again! The flavor was smooth and rich with no bitter aftertaste -- excellent quality in my book. It had a peculiar taste for an oolong, to me it seemed to have a more complex flavor than others that I've tried. I have my own personal hangup with the price, as it do...

Sorry - I just don't care for Lapsang Souchang (smoked) teas in general - and Ito En's is no exception - but that said - if you like smokey back teas with a strong aroma and a full-body when brewed (best served hot - it's just not an "icing" tea) - give Ito En's a try.
