Teavivre's Golden Monkey Black Tea

I don't enjoy Black Friday but I do enjoy black tea, and this week I sampled a new one I received from Teavivre, their Golden Monkey Black Tea. I like being able to see the mix of brown and gold in the tea leaves. While the dried tea had a fresh, woodsy scent …

… I found the steeped tea had a grapelike scent.

After sipping so many flavored teas these past few weeks, it was nice to sort of "cleanse the palate" with a straight-up black tea like this one. The taste was rich and full and with very little astringency. (This tea will also go great with the plate of desserts I happily brought home from my sister's wonderful Thanksgiving spread yesterday!) Oh, and if you're more inclined to shop online than in-store today, I noticed that Teavivre teas are on sale right now. If you are out shopping today, be careful out there!


  1. You have the right idea - black TEA not black FRIDAY - I mean seriously, bleck, who wants that?

    Wish we were together. This tea sounds yummy. A truly simple black tea is a favorite, too.

    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Hugs.

  2. Sounds delicious! And the only shopping I would consider today is online...and not much of it!

  3. This is my sort of tea, yummm!
    And it would be perfect with just
    about anything.

  4. I agree, I'll take black tea over black Friday any day. :-)


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
