I love jazz. I love Monk. I did not however love this tea. I felt like the smell was overpowering and the taste was weak and vaguely artificial-tasting.

This tea was wonderful. We enjoyed this one on a cold evening next to the fire, and it really went well with the moment. It has a very “Autumnal” taste to it. It’s the little bit of spice combined with the fruit flavors that really reminds me of fall. It truly is “A Black Celebration” as the label says. There may be a lot of “monk’s blends” available out there from various companies, but there’s only one “The Monk”.

This was my first ever attempt at pairing tea and music. Since that’s more-than-subtly what this tea is asking you to do. I had this berry black blend while listening to Cake. That seemed oddly fitting, and the two paired well. Makes me want to do more tea/music pairings. [ponders]

Loved the full review!

@Uniquity – Apparently, I was WAY off on my guess as to the inspiration of the artist to the brew.

@Wifey_Woman (Little Mew Brew) – Thanks!
