It tastes like sadness: enough like coffee to make me crave a cup, but not enough to satisfy that craving.

This brew gives you a tasty boost with a unique combination of exotic ingredients. It combines four types of coffee beans with Argentinian maté, and laces them with carob, white chocolate and chicory. The result is sweet, rich and deliciously satisfying. Plus it’s a sweet treat you can enjoy guilt-free, since this blend has virtually no calories. No wonder they say maté makes you efficient.

On opening the package, I could smell the grassy elements in the tea for sure. I was a little wary about the grassiness, as rooibos, in my experience, tends to smell similar to this. I took my infuser out at about the five minute mark. I could taste the coffee, which was predominant, with undertones of chocolate. The finish was a little grassy though. Not sure if I’ll buy it though.
I love the spices in this tea. I accidentally left it and steeped it for about 40 minutes, but when I came back it was ready to be guzzled down. It tasted a bit like a watery mocha (but a good one!). And of course, I’m full of energy. For some reason it reminded me of toothpaste (it didn’t taste like it, it just made me think of toothpaste when I was drinking it). Weird.
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!!
