While bananas aren’t my favorite fruit, banana is one of my favorite tea flavorings. I don’t know why I prefer a banana flavored tea over the fruit, but I do. And I really like 52Teas banana offerings. (Yesterday, I had the Napalm Ferret tea … and the tasting note for that one will be posted …eventually! But my point is that … that tea might be my favorite banana tea yet although I want just a touch more banana. I like the combo of banana, cinnamon and cayenne. Yum! But … I’m digressing, aren’t I?)

Anyway! This tea is a little bit of awesome too! The banana flavor here is good and strong, and there’s a nice creaminess to the overall cup, not only from the vanilla, but the hint of coconut flavor that’s in there too. The coconut was a very subtle taste for me, but, as I said in my full-length review of this – http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/05/14/banana-pudding-flavored-black-tea-from-52teas/ – my daughter tasted it (she loves bananas) and she said she tasted more coconut than banana. So, everyone’s taste buds are different. I already knew that, but I guess it just goes to show.

Another great tea from 52Teas.


This tea kinda morphs on me. Sometimes I taste more banana, other times more coconut.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
