Review of Golden Monkey Black Tea

Very GoodFairOverpriced

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.

Hello, and welcome to RateTea, and thank you for your first review!

I haven't tried this particular tea but I do notice that teas that are marketed, as this one is, as "low tannin", can often seem a bit thin-bodied. I think there's a delicate balance, with a certain amount of astringency making teas taste richer, and I've definitely had other golden-tipped teas (including some Yunnan ones) that also tasted a bit thin for me.
