I tried this tea in the shop and was not impressed with it. There was nothing wrong with the tea... it just was quite unremarkable in light of the elevated price.
I only wish I could afford to buy it by the pound. But I think I will get a sample or 2 oz tin from time to time to make this a special treat.
Dry leaf: The aroma was so fresh and bright!
Scent cup: pure holiday sweet potato with brown sugar, honey, and a bare touch of cinnamon.
Liquor: pale for a black tea but don't let that fool you. The tea is full of flavor, sweet and smooth. Paired with sweets, the first sip after tasting my Godiva Strawberry Truffle bar was amazing. Pairing with sweets and tidbits is a big plus here as we have frequent tea gatherings. Essence of sweet potato casserole! If Golden Monkey is a powerful and benevolent matriarch, this tea is the young princess she started out as!
