Yay my 52Teas order arrived!

This tea was the one I was the most excited about and it did not disappoint. The banana flavour is clear, but not overly fake. The coconut adds a creaminess, but I think I may prefer it without coconut. I’m not completely decided on that. The black base is not overwhelming the other flavours and everything is balanced really well together.

The second steep is still tasty. All the flavours are slightly diminished and I think I’m getting more coconut than banana overall.

Haha I know! I’m always nervous ordering 52Teas. The fear of possibly never tasting them gets to me and I end up ordering anyway haha.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), travel, science, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not always in the mood for them. Greens and pu’erhs I’m working on, but they’re coming along at a snail’s pace. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino). Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss, to be continued…
