Although the vulgar appellation given to this tea shocked me to the deepest core of my refined sensibilities, I was obligated to but try some, as it was a gift from my granddaughter who is alas too young to appreciate that which is finer in life than “monkey farts.” The mere act of typing out those two heinous words causes me to go cold inside.

But yea, I am deeply moved by this tea! So moved in fact, that only the Immortal Bard himself could adequately describe what I feel for this tea! What deep and full flavour! How truthful it is to that of succulent, creamy banana!

Of this ambrosial brew shall I never tire!

Couldn’t agree more w/ your 1st paragraph… although it cracks me up that your granddaughter got you this. Can I ask how old she is? Vulgarity is one thing (I’ll never try A&D D@** Fine Teas either)… but I base the numerical rating of teas solely on accuracy so since this does not taste anything like the name implies, I chose to pass knowing I’d give it a 1 no matter how much I personally loved it (even though I do actually hate banana flavored teas) and if I could ignore the name. Now if it actually tasted like a monkey fart… no matter how vile I know that would be, curiosity would get the best of me and I’d definitely try it.

Frank, you have to admit, this was the best review of any of your teas ever written, with the exception of the Tuna Melt, of course. I’m surprised the number on it isn’t ‘100.’

Leaves more Damn Fine Tea for the rest of us. :)

Gladly LiberTEAS… and it’s not like I don’t have MORE than enough teas out there to keep me busy :)
