Yunnan Golden Monkey Supreme

This outstanding selection has a profusion of downy golden buds decorating the large, well-twisted leaves. The dark amber liquor has a very fragrant aroma, with hints of cocoa and a light suggestion of rose. The cup is syrupy sweet and smooth, with toasty/earthy notes, complemented by a refreshing brightness in the finish.

Amazing finish
David – VA – June 23, 2019

This is a remarkable tea. The subtle flavor is nice enough, but the long delicious finish is remarkable, with no hint of bitterness.

One of the best Upton teas that I have tasted
Dave – CO – June 20, 2019

I drink a lot of tea and this one sent me. It starts as a sweet syrup, builds to a flowery citrus and finishes dry and smooth. Pure gold.

Stacey – UT – February 23, 2019

I have been ordering this tea since 2015 and I keep going back. It is not a strong tea. It is mild. I drink it black. It is smooth and yummy.

Notably Sweet
SFSteve – CA – December 10, 2018

Can't say I perceive the cocoa and rose notes mentioned in the description but "sweet and smooth" is spot on. Another taster called it "laid back" and that strikes me as a pretty accurate way to sum it up. A very subtle, unassertive tea but not bland.

Easy to drink
Davida – MA – September 30, 2018

This is a light, pleasant tea with a low level of tannins. I drink it without milk or sugar, and it is perfect.

Smooth, rich cup
Diana – NJ – July 05, 2018

I just got a sample of this with my last order and found it to be smooth, rich and delicious. I liked the fact that it had a lower level of tannins, as they often cause me an upset stomach if I drink black tea before breakfast. This didn't bother my stomach at all. I will definitely order a larger amount in my next tea order.

A very smooth tea
Martin – CO – November 30, 2017

Produces a deeply colored cup, but the flavor is fairly light. This is a bit too smooth and "laid back" for my taste, but is a good representative of a golden needle tea This extremely smooth tea will need a bit less sugar than others.
