Episode 069: Jin Hou


“Delicate” isn’t exactly a word I’d use to describe most black teas, but this jin hou from Teavana is just that. Also known as “golden monkey”, this tea is warm and malty with light notes of caramel apple and chocolate. It’s a very complex tea that goes down smooth.

Jin hao is a bit pricey, but you can totally get multiple infusions from this blend. I’d recommend drinking it straight, but it takes milk and sugar pretty well too.
