drank Jumpy Monkey by DAVIDsTEA
39 tasting notes

The scent of this tea is woodsy, in a smokey campfire kind of way. I expected the coffee and maybe the almonds to be stronger, but the whole roots and bark thing comes off very strong instead. The mate and coffee perked me up a bit, but not enough to get me to jumping monkey status – just a little more energy. It’s not a substitute for your morning cup of joe if that’s what you need to get started. Taste-wise, the woodsy base complements the almonds and mate quite well. It’s a pretty good balance of flavors, but not necessarily something I’ll crave or reach for. I can’t taste the coffee at all, but I can smell it in the tea leaves, so I assume it’s in there. Definitely steep this one the full 4-5 minutes, otherwise you’ll end up with weak, watery tea. Works for a second steep, but you’ll need 5-7 minutes.

Bio

I grew up drinking masala chai and fell into the tea world a couple years ago. Black teas are probably my favorite, with Darjeeling and Earl Grey on the top of the list. Recently green teas and oolongs have been growing on me, and anything with mint or a citrus flavor is good in my book.
