This is so yummy. I don’t think I’ve ever had monkey bread before, but I just looked it up and it looks delicious and totally something I want in my mouth.
This tea was very caramel flavored, but it did not taste overpowering or artificial. There was no need for sweetener. I liked that chai was infused in the yogurt bits – that caused the chai to be a nice extra flavor instead of overwhelming the tea. The yogurt made it creamy.
Very yummy. Perfect fall tea.
I have a pouch of this from when it was called Monkey Bread, and a pouch of Cinnamon Bun. Today I’m drinking the older of the two — the Monkey Bread. I added 1 tsp of leaf to boiling water, and gave it approximately 3.5 minutes. It brews up a fairly light golden brown, and so I went without additions. I’m glad of that, because I think milk and sugar might have obscured the wonderful yoghurty notes I’m getting from this. That alone puts me in mind of a cinnamon bun drizzled with yoghurt/cream cheese icing. The fact that there’s a big smack of cinnamon helps too, obviously! Cinnamon is the main flavour, as would be expected, but there’s a good dose of chai-style spicing, too. It’s not too heavy, though — it reminds me of the spice you might find in a banana loaf cake, or something like that. Not the main flavour, nor intended to be, but a firm background note. With the chai, icing, and cinnamon notes taken together, this is like cake and tea complete! A seriously good dessert replacement! I’m glad I have two sample pouches now — I can save one for autumn/winter, when this will definitely come into its own!
Thanks Ost for the sample!
Wow oh wow this smells so good, sweet and cinnamony and gooey. Steeped up the smell is strong enought that I can smell it while it was on my bedside table and I was sitting in bed. It really does smell like ooey gooey cinnamon buns. The kind with extra filling.
Sipping it, it really tastes like liquified cinnamon rolls. Sweet, common goodness. I must admit I was skeptical. “What’s the difference between cinnamon tea and cinnamon roll tea?” But somehow there’s something else to this tea that makes it more than just a cinnamon tea. It really tastes like biting in to the best part of a common roll: the dead center. Lots of cinnamon and brown sugar, a little glaze, and the bread that’s just a touch above doughy.
A perfect cup to end the night, this is going on my to buy list.
I have never been a huge cinnamon fan. But, like everyone else, I do enjoy cinnamon buns from time to time. This is the perfect cinnamon tea for me-not too overpowering, it’s just right. (: Tastes exactly like a cinnamon bun, even with a hint of icing flavor.
After years and years of not being able to eat desserts in peace, I’m soo excited to have found teas that taste exactly like the desserts I have been missing out on through the years! _
Thank you Kat_Maria for a sample of this tea! After lunch today, I was craving something sweet, so I made this tea. It’s definitely cinnamon-packed right from the beginning of the sip. It then leaves with a maple flavor that kind of sits in my mouth afterward. And it smells so wonderfully cinnamon-y that I kind of wish it were a candle. I usually don’t like dessert teas as much because I find prefer more subtle sweetness, but I had a major sweet tooth moment today and this tea helped quench that!
