A great tea for a jumpy morning after a night filled with monkey business. I had a late night. Translation: rough day at work, rough commute (subway broken, torrential rain, a very nasty lady who opened up her drenched umbrella in my face and left me standing in a puddle], followed by too much reading in an effort to forget) and had to literally drag my feet to the tea cupboard this morning for a cup of Jumpy Monkey. It doesn’t disappoint. Very jumpy!
I like mate. No, I love mate. It was my first tea obsession. Plain green mate. I love its grassy aroma, its complete lack of astringency, and its energizing effect. Having said that, I love Jumpy Monkey all the more because it combines the delicious flavor of coffee with the delicious flavor of green mate. 1+1=∞ in this case. It is sooooo yummy.
Those unfamiliar with the characteristic aroma of green mate may find this blend somewhat off-putting. I find that people who’ve never experienced mate like the roasted version. But I like both. And I LOVE Jumpy Monkey!!!!
Note: Makes a great latte!
