I’ve been so wary of trying this tea since it supposedly tastes like coffee. I love coffee, but teas that taste like coffee have disappointed me in the past… I desperately wanted something to wake me up, so when I went to DAVIDsTEA over the weekend, I picked up Jumpy Monkey at last.
It doesn’t really have much of a scent, but I do smell earthy, and I do smell a bit of coffee. The taste is not very strong at all, even having steeped it for about 5 minutes. It has a light coffee-earthy-nutty taste. No acidity whatsoever. I kind of wish it had a bit more flavour to it, though. It’s really bland.
As for its “jumpy” properties…. I was nodding off at work, and it seems to have done the job :) I’ll give the taste some time. Hopefully it will grow on me!
