I love this tea! The banana flavor is quite delicate, and in fact, I think it tastes a bit more like a plantain than banana, because it doesn’t have that distinctive sweetness of a banana.
But the green tea is what really is awesome in this blend – it tastes so good. Vegetative and sweet. EXCELLENT!
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending some of this tea my way!
This is so good! The strawberry flavor strong for a white tea – but it doesn’t overpower the white tea. It is a nice balance. Sweet and fresh. Reminds me of the early days of summer when strawberries are in season and makes me long for strawberry shortcake!
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea to try!
I just wrote a longer review of this that should publish soon on the Tea Review Blog, but here are some quick notes about this tea. It DOES get better with every sip, but, I am not getting much in the way of nutty flavor as described by TeaFrog, except from the rooibos.
The chocolate flavor is faint, but pleasant. I can taste a bit of the rum, but it isn’t strong either. But what is strong is a sense of creaminess in this tea which is very in keeping with the tiramisu idea. It doesn’t really taste much like mascarpone cheese, but it does have a very creamy, custard-y like taste to it. I am also not getting a strong coffee essence of the tiramisu.
Overall, though, it’s pretty tasty…
This is very interesting. I had put off trying it because I was scared it would be too bitter, but it is “bitter in a good way!” It is a savory kind of bitter, kind of like dandelion greens. It has a very pleasant – almost sweet! – taste to it. Crisp, herbal, and I’m really enjoying this so much more than I thought I would.
Definitely use a little less leaf than you normally would, a lighter infusion is better here. A short steep time is also recommended.
