If you really like the nutty, cocoa notes of Golden Monkey; but not so much the flowery notes of it; you will really enjoy Golden Blend! I would definitely buy this again.
The Assam definitely asserts itself up front, with the honey/apricot subtly balancing it in the background. A good bodied tea without being overpowering. The briskness rating of 2 might be a bit low in my honest opinion, I might call it a 3...but don't let that stop you from trying this very fine tea! Great with a splash of milk for your morning wake up.
Just not what I look for in a tea blend. Very earthy almost smoked flavor, too strong for me.
