SPOILER – This is the third tea in this years 12 Teas of Christmas box by 52Teas. It’s funny because the last thing I said to my husband last night is that I’m craving banana, then this morning before I do anything else I scratch off the foil from the sachet and wouldn’t you know it…banana pudding.
Woah… the smell is overwhelming – strong, sticky banana and coconut filled the room with just a quick tear into the sachet. It’s overwhelming in a good way, the sort of way that makes me want to sit in a bathtub of this blend with nothing but a spoon. As fruity as this smells I can also note the black tea too.
The flavour matches the scent very well, the banana and coconut form a pina colada style blend but with added depth from the black tea and some richness. It’s a fruit tea without being comprised of purely fruit pieces, it’s magic. How does it taste so delicious and sweet and juicy? I cannot answer those but this is amazing, and I’m trying it without milk or sugar. Am I missing out by having this tea au-natural? It’s a risk I’m taking because for right here and right now it tastes perfect.
Banana Pudding tea? Heck yes it is!
