From Tealux

Release your inner monkey! Chocolate Monkey is a succulent and deliciously flavorful sweet and juicy rooibos blend that offers the perfect after dinner alternative to sweets and sugary desserts.

Equally delicious served hot or over ice, Chocolate Monkey is exclusive to Tealux, and certified organic by the USDA. Packed with naturally flavonoid-rich chocolate to give a real boost to your mood, as well as succulent, summery banana, the initial sweetness and rich, warm taste of Chocolate Monkey is underlain with the subtle kick of pink peppercorns and mellow, herbal red rooibos. Juicy apple pieces provide the nourishing base notes of this blend, along with organic cacao nibs. A perfectly balanced creation that is naturally sweet without ever being sickly.

Ingredients: Organic Fair Trade Rooibos, Organic Cacao Nibs, Organic Apple Bits, Organic Banana Chips, Pink Peppercorn, Chocolate, Natural Flavors

This is the best thing ever! Well, as far as banana teas go? (Have I had banana teas before? Maybe a bluebird one? I wish it were easier to search).

It’s similar to a banana chocolate smoothie, minus the artificial flavours. Obviously it’s not as thick as a smoothie but it does have a bit of thickness to it, which is probably partly because of the rooibos. I didn’t add any sweetener to it as it had enough to begin with. This is a pretty relaxing tea before bed.

ETA: I put the remaining 6oz in the fridge to cool and am enjoying it now. It’s not AS good as it was hot, but I am still liking it. Maybe if I’d cold-steeped it I’d like the cold version more.

You’ve had banana dream pie!


I have! Actually I think I have a 25g pack in my cupboard that I’m holding onto for swap or when I’m in the mood for it. Was it one you really liked? I could add it to your Harney&Sons samples and matcha. I rated it at 74.

Turns out I had Monkey Chops and really liked that too because of the natural banana flavour, but it’s a black tea. I think this wins because it’s herbal and cheaper to ship than the Bluebird tea would be. And tealux has sales occasionally so I just need to wait! (Speaking of sales, I am saving my tea budget mostly for Black Friday sales… then… bwahahaha)


oh, I would like this!


I dooo like banana dream if you wanna spare some o__o! It was one of those tempting sales the other day!


Will do Ozli! I’m just spooning out some Harney&Sons samples for you atm. :P Hope to get it out next week.

Hhmmmmmmm I’m not really sure why I ordered this. I’m not really a big banana fan. It’s ok, not my favorite. It tastes like chocolate banana to me, it’s not really that strong of a banana flavor, which is probably better for me. I might have sweetened this a bit too much. Need to remember that Tealux’s dessert blends are sweet and I shouldn’t be adding as much, if any to them.

I’ve managed to drink most of this without ever having added a tasting note. I’ve always meant to, but it’s just not seemed to happen. This tea is obviously my busy tea! I use 1 tsp of leaf for this one, and give it about 4 minutes in boiling water. No additions.

The thing I like most about this one is the banana flavouring. I find with a lot of banana teas that the flavour just isn’t really very strong, or it gets lots among other (stronger) flavours. It’s clearly the key player here, and it’s a nice over-ripe, squashy banana. There’s a hint of chocolate to this one, although its by no means strong. It adds a nice creamy cocoa note to the background, and the combination reminds me a little of banana hot chocolate. The rooibos is a little prominent, but not terrible. I have a feeling a splash of milk would take that down, but unfortunately I don’t have any with me at the moment. Something to try before the last cup of this one is gone! The pink peppercorn adds a spicy note to the aftertaste (it tingles on my tongue), which I think is pretty unnecessary. Still, it’s a pretty good choice as far as banana teas go – not the best (that would be 52 Teas Banana Pudding!), but definitely up there. A yummy mid-morning treat.

Thanks to cavocorax for sending this to my wife along with lots of other goodies today, it was such a nice surprise for a Monday! This is the second chocolate monkey I’ve come across so I was excited to compare the two! This version definitely has a better chocolate taste than the other I’ve tried, perhaps because the peppercorns are less pronounced. It’s a very smooth tea, great for a nice quiet evening at home after a long day. Very tasty tea, I could definitely see myself ordering some from tealux in the future!
