Wow this tea really smells banana-y. My sample packet of this had about half a banana coin and 2 large walnut pieces.
Preparation: covered and steeped for 5 minutes in an 10 oz mug. Used the whole sample.
Drank it plain without added milk or sweetener
Tasting Note: This is the second banana tea I’ve ever had and both are from A Quarter to Tea. This tea is similar to her Banana Split tea but only in terms of the banana flavor. The banana flavor is the prominent note in this tea with some nutty undertones. The aftertaste of the tea tastes like a banana walnut muffin. I can see why a lot of people don’t like banana teas because the flavor is sort of strange. This tea is pretty spot on in terms of the name for me although I don’t get pancakes from it. I think anyone who likes banana teas will be able to appreciate this blend. The banana flavor is essentially a yellow banana, not a ripe one. I only eat bananas when they are SUPER ripe and sweet. So I’m not the targeted audience for this tea but enjoyed trying it.
I would love to see a caramelized banana tea or something along those lines. A Banana Nutella tea might also be interesting.
