New tea of the day. Ahhh, the house is clean, the cats and dogs are bathed and I am officially ready for Christmas! It’s stopped raining too and the sun is shining. It feels a bit odd to have warm weather on Christmas, but this is the South after all.
I was excited to try this tea because I like banana flavored things, but a bit hesitant because walnuts aren’t my favorite. Luckily the walnut flavor in this is very good. It’s more like a nutty flavor than the taste that you get from eating plain walnuts. The banana flavor is sweet and perfect. It kind of reminds me of the banana flavored runt candies, but a little less artificial than that. I wish the banana was a little stronger, but it does seem to be coming out more as the cup cools. Adding milk and sweetener gave it a creaminess. I’m glad that I added this one to my order!
-Dry blend has very large black tea leaves with large pieces of dried bananas and large pieces of walnuts.
-Dry leaves smell like fresh nuts with a hint of banana candy. Tea liquor aroma is of malty black tea with a touch of fresh banana and walnut.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium reddish brown color.
-Heavy walnut flavor and finish. Fruity banana aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. Nice fresh walnut flavor with a hint of banana. Banana flavor becomes creamy with milk and sweetener.
