Full-bodied infusion with rich cocoa undertones
Steeped in ancient lore and imperial exclusivity, this legendary top Chinese tea is the finest black tea from the Fujian province. In 2011, it was served at the White House to the President of the United States and the President of China. A smooth tippy tea, rich with complex cocoa undertones, it manages to be extremely low in tannins yet rich in flavor. Originating during the Song Dynasty, this Imperial tribute tea features golden tipped black leaves consisting of one leaf and one bud.

Hit or miss, depending on the store/batch...

By Alex

from Maryland

Comments about Teavana Golden Monkey Black Tea:

This is basically my favorite black tea, that I've probably ever had, but it definitely depends on the store you get it from. If it doesn't have that cocoa undertone, then try another store because that either means it's not fresh or that particular batch just isn't the premium quality that it should be. This is 5 stars when it's got that full flavor, fresh, with the cocoa undertone, but can be very bland for the price in other batches. Very hit or miss the last few months, for whatever reason. My recommendation for Teavana is to make sure the batch is what it should be, otherwise, you're not going to gain customers seeking this tea at the current price.

Depends WHEN you buy it

By jill

from Denver, CO

Comments about Teavana Golden Monkey Black Tea:

It is one of my favorite teas. However, you need to buy it when the first shipment arrives (~June) fresh from the April harvest. When I bought some in November, it tasted musty and old. It had been sitting around in storage too long. great flavor and I can get multiple brews out of it. This is very nice as I need to decaffeinate it on the first brew.

This black tea is different from the many I have tried. Taking you on such a soothing journey. As if you feel re-energized and relaxed at the same time.

Pretty flat black

Comments about Teavana Golden Monkey Black Tea:

Meh, it tastes like any black tea from the grocery store, it doesn't have any natural pizzazz to it.

Poor Quality Golden Monkey

By Teamania

from NYC

Comments about Teavana Golden Monkey Black Tea:

I went to a Teavana store to try this tea but was very disappointed. It is a poor example of a golden monkey. Little to no aroma and an uncharacteristic taste. Golden Monkey should have a more pronounced flavor and aroma of cocoa, dried fruit, and a nutty deliciousness. In the tea's defense, they were storing it in a giant tin which did not look airtight and probably didn't help keep the tea fresh. Another example of a large tea company providing sub-par loose leaf tea.

My favorite tea

By Tracy

from Royal Oak, MI

Comments about Teavana Golden Monkey Black Tea:

I'll admit I'm a tea snob and This is my favorite tea. I drink it plain, somtimes with a bit of milk. I serve this at the tea parties I host with my Nichiren Buddhist friends and they always want more. I buy it only from my local Teavana and brew it exactly as recommended. It makes great iced tea too.

Comments about Teavana Golden Monkey Black Tea:

This is high quality tea without any added flavorings. Worth every penny! I got this from the rise and shine sampler box on sale and with 30% off. So for the price of this tea alone I got 3 other flavors! A real deal! This is the first loose leaf black tea I've tried that is real tea with no added artificial flavors and the taste shows! A natural almost sweetness that has NONE of the bitterness you get from cheap bagged teas. I'm betting I can brew this up with rock sugar to make some out of this world sweet iced tea! Will difinately buy again. Love it!!
