Lemon Vibration/Wise Ape Tea -Skysamurai-

Are you familiar with the song Good Vibrations by Marky Mark feat The Funky Bunch?

If not or if you need a refresher go take a listen then come back. This tisane definitely has lemon vibrations.

To be honest I don’t drink herbals unless I’m sick but seeing as this was in the review pile I didn’t want to wait till I was sick to drink it. Plus when your sick your sense of taste is messed up. Everything about this cuppa shouts spa. It smells like you walked into a high-class spa. The flavor isn’t overly lemony.

So it’s perfect for relaxing and winding down. Everything blends well, with a unique sweet after taste.

Also want to give a shoutout to the company for sending 10% profits to charity.

Orange Dreamsicle from Wise Ape Tea Co. . . . .

Wise Ape Company might be best known for its Chocolate Hustle tea blend, a high-caffeine yerba mate blend, but recently, the Wise Ape has branched out to feature an assam black tea blend and an herbal blend as well.  Orange Dreamsicle is the new herbal tea offering from Wise Ape.

I love the names and designs from Wise Ape, not to mention their videos featuring a big ape hand brewing tea.  Orange Dreamsicle is a great name for a bedtime tea, evoking the flavors of a favorite ice cream bar.

The blend itself is very chamomile-driven, with the gentle lemony tones from that herb taking the lead.  Behind the chamomile, I taste vanilla and orange as well, contributing to the creamy ice-cream-inspired flavors in the blend’s name.  The vanilla and orange add sweetness without being too artificial or sugary; they are gentle yet flavorful and let you add more sweetness to suit your own tastes.  For my personal preferences, I will say that I wish there was a bit more citrus and a bit less chamomile, but it makes sense that there is lots of chamomile for a sleepytime brew.

Smooth and easy-drinking, a great cup of tea to ease you into sweet dreams.

Chocolate Hustle from Wise Ape Tea Company. . . . . .

Chocolate Hustle from Wise Ape wants to be your replacement for coffee or that afternoon energy drink, or any high caffeine beverage that you reach for when the going gets tough.  The yerba mate in this blend certainly gives you some much-needed energy to fuel your day-to-day hustle.

Beyond the yerba mate, this tea has chocolate flavors to indulge your sweet tooth.  The cacao notes also help edge the tea into a more coffee-inspired robustness. There is also mint included for some crispness, a perfectly brisk accent to help make this brew feel more uplifting.  The mint offers cooling and calming sensations to help you with mental clarity and focus.

The dry grass or earthy-hay flavors of the yerba mate are still very much present in the brew, so it may not taste exactly like a coffee replacement.  This is probably a great caffeine-replacer for someone who already likes mate teas.

This tea is flavorful on its own or the perfect partner for a latte or even a butter-filled bulletproof brew. Don’t let low-energy get you down, listen to the Wise Ape and brew up a cup of Chocolate Hustle to keep you going.

Orange Dreamsicle from Wise Ape Tea Co. . .

I have searched and for the most part in vain- for a tea that tasted like an orange dreamsicle.  Growing up, that was my favorite summer treat so to have a tea to remember those summer childhood memories without the calories, well that would be just dandy!

Upon first sniff, this tea smells all sorts of citrus and vanilla.  I couldn’t wait to see if the sweet alluring aromas matched how this tea would taste.

Brewed with fresh prepped water and allowed to brew for about 5 minutes, I eagerly took my first sip and WOW! This tea pops of fresh orange and vanilla creamy like notes with this gorgeous herbaceous undertone.  First you get a true orange flavor, nothing artificial or chemical tasting, with this swirling lush vanilla twist with this chamomile herbal finish.  Sip after beautiful sip, this tea is perfection in a cup!

This tea tastes exactly like it should with a name like Orange Dreamsicle with a chamomile finish that I’m adoring.  If you haven’t experienced teas from Wise Ape Tea, I highly encourage you to.  Their teas are fresh, full of flavor, and are good for you.   Each blend has special herbs and inclusions that help make these teas more like what I consider wellness teas.  A lot of these teas in this category really do not have the best flavor, but these blends just hit the spot. Plus, these teas all benefit different charities with how Wise Ape Tea Co pays it forward.

I’ve always been a big fan of their Chocolate Hustle and now with the new teas added to the line up, I adore them even  more!  I can’t wait to cold brew this delight for those hot summer days right around the corner.

Chocolate Hustle from Wise Ape. . . . .

My introduction to Wise Ape’s Chocolate Hustle tea was a sister suggesting we brew it cold, in coconut milk… all of which I had no idea was even possible but wow, such a great idea for lazy mornings!!! This has since overturned my ugh totally “basic” hot water regimen. I was tempted this morning to liven up my bland, healthy cereal by putting it in here, but the scientist in me needed to have a control group first before I went too far down the rabbit hole testing the bounds of FLAVOR! (Cue that stoned cook from Blake Lively’s movie, Acceptance.)

Overnight the creamy liquid turned cocoa colored,  though I saw no obvious powders in the sachet, a la the matcha plus tea leaves trend. It also definitely smells like chocolate but tastes more earthy with a hint of true mint. Oh, it’s a maté blend, that explains it. I bet hot brewed in milk would perk up more flavor. The sweet coconut taste seems to overpower some of the other flavors, let’s see what else is in here. Oh chicory goodness! Hmmm ashwagandha… but I didn’t dislike it like other mind boosting teas. Stevia?! That normally tastes “off” with chocolate recipes but I don’t notice that in this concoction.

I can’t say I necessarily felt Planet of the Apes wiser, but it did boost my alertness during my carb-coma 3 hour block of post-lunch Biology slide shows! I’m learning our bodies can be unpredictable, but fortunately advances in science can help us live full, worthwhile lives. Another great note: A portion of their profits is donated to the brain tumor society. I HIGHLY recommend trying this tea, and that’s not the cook from Acceptance talking again.
