Best tea....EVER

Been a favourite for some years now, terrific flavour, I make it in an infuser cup and it's perfect, I drink it golden with no milk

Not Golden Monkey what I expected

I gave this tea a good try for about a month now and I must say I'm still dissapointed as I was the first time I tried it.
I don't know if I got some mixed batch, but the tea I received does not look like golden monkey tea from the picture above. The tea I got looks like a blend of about 95% low grade normal black tea and a few strands of golden monkey thrown into it. I had golden monkey tea before and this doesn't taste like I expected.
I'd love to give a good feedback, but this is the true experience I got.

Golden monkey and more

The golden monkey tea is a new favourite of mine, free sample with my order was a lovely touch. I ordered 6 different teas and none have disappointed. Thank you Tugboat. I will be ordering again!

Golden Monkey

This is a delicious tea, very smooth with soft flavour but not at all weak.
The price is very fair and the delivery very good. I will order from Tugboat again. Love the name!
