Every time I drink this I try to appreciate it, but I don’t know what I’m missing. This blend tastes kind of bland, the almond stands out a little bit amidst the straw taste. I’ve been working through 100g of this stuff and I’m still not in love.

This brew uses ingredients from the Rain Forest Alliance to give you a tasty boost. It combines freshly roasted peaberry coffee beans with Argentine maté, and laces them with almonds, white chocolate and other roasted barks and roots. The result is deliciously satisfying. And by buying this rainforest product, you’ll be fighting global warming and helping the monkeys. No wonder they say maté makes you efficient.

This tea smells good, and always leaves me with lots more energy than before. But Jumpy Monkey is so bitter! I can see why it’s suggested for people who love coffee; as I’m not a coffee lover though, I’m not a huge fan. I want to love it as much as my other teas, so I’m hoping that Jumpy Monkey is an acquired tea sort of taste. So maybe after I drink many cups…
I love love love this tea. I generally add sugar to my tea and coffee, and this is the first I don’t have to. It’s smooth, with a light coffee flavor. It’s perfect for those mornings where I need to be awake fast, and have it last. I also like crunching on the coffee beans after it’s done steeping, for an extra kick ;) Definitely nothing compares!!
This is another of my favorite’s from David’s Tea. I love the hint coffee flavor – nothing strong. It also tastes, to me, of one of my favorite chocolate caramel candies that I love. As well, I love looking in the bag and seeing the bits of “coffee bean”, bark, almonds and the smell is divine! I do not get a “buzz” from the mate tea, but hey…I do love the fact that I’m helping to save the monkeys in the rain forest. This must be a popular tea, as the last time I was in the store, they were out! :(
It was alright. Didn’t really taste like much of anything actually; it wasn’t gross but nor was it wonderful.
It did deliver on it promise to give you a mental boost. The boost isn’t the same as what you’d get on an energy drink, but it did wake me up in a much more subtle and natural way.
I will drink the rest of the baggie I purchased, but I am unsure whether I will purchase more.
