i love this tea. it has a wonderful bright and clean/crisp flavor. i particularly enjoy it iced. currently arguing with my tea-mates about whether or not this tea is picked by monkeys still. teavana says it just refers to a legend, however i read in a book that there are still families in a remote and small region that still train monkeys to pick the leaves.
13 Tasting Notes
i like this tea hot (and okay, sometimes even cold). plain, green from china, a little bit of a nutty undertone. it’s not too strong/vegetal and it’s not too weak – it’s a nice middle ground. great for anyone still breaking into plain green tea
delicious. it took me a while to come around but this tea is sweet and the toasted rice makes it so unique (and delicious). it does kind of remind me of smacks cereal, but i like that.
I love this tea. I read somewhere that it won an award but it didn’t come up in my googling, today. It is sensitive to time and temperature, but when made right, it has a wonderful nutty flavor!

i’m so dissapointed this was discontinued by teavana. such a staple. i have a giant tin. its sweet and a little bit apple-y
Put off by it at first but I gave it another chance. I like this tea way better hot.
No one ever likes this tea – but I love it. I guess I get it all to myself!
honeybush is great way to help get over a cold. it’s an expectorant so it helps break up the gross mucus in lungs when you’re sick. it mixes well with a lot of flavors…not that i couldn’t drink it by itself all day…
Loving the new Thousand Mountain Jasmine!!
I mixed this with South African Rooibos. Iced it. Drank it. Yeah.
With a little peppermint and honey to cure my birthday party hang over!
This tea is pretty cool. I recommend 2 heaping teaspoons/ 8 oz and letting it steep 10 minutes. I like to add sugar or honey but it has a sweetness of it’s own. It does taste a little like what I would imagine mulch tasting like – but it’s different, and enjoyable. It also mixes well with fruity herbals.
