drank Banana Nut Bread by DAVIDsTEA
504 tasting notes

I used about 2 tsp and steeped for 10 minutes – I didn’t experience the flavourlessness (not a word :P ) that other people have experienced!

I did however make the mistake of adding agave which made it waaay too sweet – it’s perfectly sweet on its own from the banana! I loved that the banana bits swelled and plumped up – I think they gave a lot of true banana bread flavour and I liked that.

Mike likes banana bread with chocolate chips, so he suggests blending it with a chocolate tea, or adding chocolate chips right into the mix!

Is it nutty though? I don’t tend to like any teas that have nuts/nut flavours, particularily forever nuts from davids tea. If its not too nutty I’ll defs try some because i’ve liked theyre other banana-y teas.

It is pretty nutty, definitely tastes like a banana bread with walnuts or pecans, so you might not like this one! If you’ve tried Toasted Walnut, it kind of reminds me of that. :( Sorry!
But hey, you could always try just one cup, or stick with delicious banana oolong (I love that stuff)

Banana oolong is really better is all you want is banana flavour ( i love it too) its also take way less leaf and not 10 minute to have some taste ( im just stunned by how much leaf and time needed to get flavour out of this one ) but it is good once you get the recipe good

Yep Banana Oolong is really good for a plain banana flavor. I have the one that David’s Tea makes and it’s awesome :)

Bio

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
