Well, I have generally determined that Golden Blacks are one of my favorite types of tea. So, time to step my game up a notch!
Western Style. 3 min with 212F Water. Wet leaf smells like honey and muted cocoa with some maybe baked bread is it? Hard to say, I’m still learning this stuff.
Taste is… OH WOW. This is so much better than my Adagio Golden Monkey. I can see the similarities for sure, but all of the yumminess in this cup is turned up to 11. I’m getting strong cocoa and honey notes, and yes I’m calling it- it tastes like fresh baked bread. There’s something else there, I want to say ever so slight sweet potato, but really only the best parts of sweet potato because I really hate sweet potato and I’m definitely loving on this. Aftersip mouth taste is sweet and pleasing. Almost like a honeyed dinner roll. This is probably the best tea I’ve ever tasted in my life. Actually, “probably” may be misleading. I’m pretty much certain this is the best tea I’ve ever had. If there is better tasting tea out there, I don’t recall. I need this all the time. Bottom line: If you are a fan of the golden blacks, you owe it to yourself to try this. Go for it. This tea is wonderful.
