983 tasting notes

Today’s Christmas tea from 52 Teas. This was one that I also wanted to try from this years releases.

This tea smells very dry and spicy but with a strange yet fitting sweet banana tone in the background. It was spicy enough to make me sneeze when I took in a deep sniff of it.

The pepper is strong and fiery as the name suggests but it gets softened quickly by the sweet banana. The banana tastes delicious, Frank does excellent banana flavours in his blends. It tastes like I imagined a spicy banana bomb pudding would (banana napalm bomb pudding). The cinnamon is very strong in the after taste..or after burn as my husband put it.

A nice and unusual tea, glad I got to try this.
Happy Holidays everyone!

Profile

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
