11th tea from 52 Teas 12 Days of Christmas.

I knew I would not like this one because of the ingredients, but I am still going to try it.

On initial sip, there is a burning in the back of my throat from the cayenne pepper, but it disappears really quick. That’s the napalm I’m assuming :)

After the cayenne wears off, there is a very ripe banana taste. I am not a huge banana or banana flavoured type of girl, so that is why I assumed I wouldn’t/don’t like the tea. The banana taste disappears really quick as well, then the cayenne comes back in the aftertaste. Double napalm!

The banana and cayenne work really well with the gunpowder green tea. The cayenne does mellow a bit as the tea cools.

Not my taste, but this is a really neat idea and really well blended tea.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
