When I ordered a bunch of holiday teas from Bluebird earlier this year, I included a note that I would love to try any of the banana teas that the company offered. Thanks, Bluebird! I received a sample of two banana teas with my order. First up is Monkey Chops.

Monkey Chops has a ceylon black tea base with added vanilla flavoring and banana pieces. I’m a fan of banana in all its forms, the actual fruit, flavored candy, spiced banana bread, creamy banana desserts, etc. and I have to say, this tea actually does taste like bananas-and-cream black tea! Even without milk, the brew has plenty of creamy notes and smooth banana flavor. I’d love to upgrade my sample to a full bag next time and try out all kinds of lattes and desserts with this tea. Banana isn’t a flavor you see in teas everyday, and with a name like Monkey Chops, how can you resist?

Flavors: banana, Cream, Vanilla

I have fun designing themed blends and trying the blends made by others on Adagio. I’ve made themed teas for: X-Files, Mega64, Fallout, the Knick, Hell on Wheels and many more.

I don’t tend to take any sugar or milk in my tea and have a habit of over-steeping. I love trying out themed tea blends, but I would also like to get more adventurous in trying more high quality or unflavored teas.
