All I can really say about this tea is “eh”.
I wanted more chocolate and less gritty nutty taste. :( It didn’t really taste like much of anything but grainy almonds, which I don’t mind, but it’s not what I was expecting. Almost grassy. I don’t want to be drinking grass. I detected no chocolate or even coffee for that matter.

Disappointing.

The name of this one always makes me think there should be bananas. Banana, coffee, chocolate, and almonds sounds like a great idea to me…

I totally see what you mean! It would be 10x better with some bananas or some sort of fruit…it needs a natural sweetness of some sort to it.

Yah, I totally expected banana in this one because I kept thinking of chunky monkey from Ben and Jerry’s (ice cream, not tea). Anyway… It was a no go for me

Ha ha ha… I immediately thought of chunky monkey too! When you call something monkey it better got bananas in it… lol

My name is Yvonne. I’m 20 and live in a snowy Canadian wasteland known as Manitoba.

I’m relatively new to the loose tea world, although I used to drink generic Red Rose tea constantly. A friend introduced me to a Teavana tea one chilly winter and I got myself slightly intrigued. Went to purchase it myself, used shoddy equipment to prepare it, and was discouraged.

Christmas 2013 rolled around, and despite having an awful holiday for other reasons, I received some of Teavana’s Cha Yen Thai as a gift after asking for chai tea. I went out and bought a proper infuser cup and was instantly hooked. Now my tea collection is steadily growing! I’m obsessed!

I like:
Dessert teas, black teas, oolong, rooibos, pu’erh, mate, chai, chamomile, chocolate, coconut, cinnamon, pineapple, tropical mixes, nutty, sweet, complex flavours, indulgent flavours

I do NOT like:
Green teas, herbal teas, white teas, teas too overbearing with fruit, pure tisane, cloyingly sweet teas, hibiscus, peanuts, burning my mouth

I am lactose intolerant (pretty severely, actually – I do not consume any dairy product) but I find that the miniscule amounts of dairy found in some teas don’t bother me for the most part.

100 – My absolute favourite teas. Without them, I will cry salty tears of despair.

99 – 95 – Cream of the crop, although missing SOMETHING to make them a perfect favourite. Not something I couldn’t possibly live without, but pretty darn close. Lots of teas in this category tend to reach 100 eventually.

95 – 75 – Yummy, but if it disappeared tomorrow I’d quietly mourn it for about 15 minutes and move on to a favourite. Leaves something to be desired.

75 – 50 – Passable, but not by much. Something I’d really have to be in the mood for to drink.

50 and lower – Nope nope nope. Not for me. Probably couldn’t or had a hard time finishing the cuppa. Doooown the sink.
