253 Tasting Notes
My mom is a big maté fan, so if she loves teas like this I should too, right?
Wrong… something about matés just comes off as musty-tasting to me. I wanted to like this, since I can no longer drink coffee I need something in the mornings to get me going. Jumpy Monkey just doesn’t appear to be that tea, guess I will have to stick with Jungle Ju Ju for the energy boost in the mornings.
As others have noted the smell is very medicinal, lets take a sip…
Hmmm… not unlike Raspberry Nectar, except I find the lemongrass much more tolerable in this. Not the greatest of flavours, but something about this tea just feels detoxifying! I like this so much better than some of the other wellness teas I have tried (Skinny and The Cardio, I’m lookin’ at you!) and it’s exactly what I need after a meat-and-junk-food filled weekend with the in-laws.
The initial smell is that of oranges, not getting a lot of caramel. So, how will it taste?
I tried to like this tea. I really did, but it just didn’t jive with my taste buds: too much orange, no hint of the caramel in the name, and an odd taste which I assume comes from the mulberries. Nope, could not like it. This tea and I are destined for separate lives, which is fine by me.
