I love this banana tea. The green tea/Genmaicha aspect gives it an interesting, almost banana pudding taste although I don’t get the cheesecake at all.

Tastes like DT’s Cookie but with a black tea base. Caramel and chocolately. Fun plus the darn cute art design on Lupicia’s tins get me every time.

Other reviews for this honey bush seem spot on but my palate is unable to identify which is rum flavoring and which is lime which sounds odd. The lime, as I can tell smells more lime peel than juice. I can taste occasional flashes of sweetness which I’m guessing comes from freeze-dried strawberries. I am definitely returning to leaving another note when I try this again. Not sure if honeybush coldsteeps well. I chose this tea because all of a sudden had a craving for a strawberry white so I am considering buying the Strawberry Mint Julep White.

drank Peach Cardamom by 52teas

Peach balances equally with green tea so it’s worth trying hot. Lower quality teas that are heavily fragranced I would use for iced tea but this is not so. However I imagine this would be refreshing cold and mixed with soda water. I want to do this cold steeped to see if I pick up more characteristics from the tea itself.

drank Cache-Cache by Lupicia

This is what I imagine H&S’ Paris would be if Paris removed the vanilla and lemony bergamot. The tea base is unassuming at best and uninspiring at worst which to me means iced tea. Note that I bought this tea for its pretty Christmas tin, the one with the constellation-themed fish. (In my mind I know I bought a $2 sticker for the premium of a tin but Christmas is when I get stupid splurgy.)
