I bought 250 grams of this a while ago. And now it is not calling me anymore. I had it a lot at first and then i haven’t had it for a few months. Tried it today and it’s sort of … Meh. Didn’t sweeten it so maybe that’s the reason it’s not making me swoon. It’s still a trusty tea, tastes like banana oolong should. Not too fake, banana does not overpower, but all I can think of is how my della terra teas are coming soon and I will have more choices in my cupboard.

Does it still taste like fake banana though? You know like the 5cent banana marshmellows?

I so wanted to try this before it was discontinued, but I couldn’t justify buying such a huge quantity of it. Could I interest you in a trans-Atlantic swap, or just buy some from you?

Umm… To me it doesn’t taste too fake. I know what you mean, I think monkey fart from 52teas tastes like those banana runt candies. The good thing is I love those, I always picked out the banana candies out of the bunch in the box. I also like banana flavoured Popsicles, despite the artificial flavouring.

@Adagio breeze, you don’t have to buy the oolong from me, I am not against swapping. I don’t do them just for sport, like other people, but if someone is interested in a tea I have, I can always swap if I have more than 1-2 cups which in this case I do. I will be in Romania in a week or so, can totally mail from there, but I don’t mind doing it from here. Let me know if there’s other things you want. Even if I don’t have them, I can go and buy. There are a few DAVIDs teas I ran out of and need to replenish so a trip there is imminent.

Bio

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician, I’m a chef and a wine lover with a trained palate but find that I lack the linguistic prowess for tea tasting notes. Now there’s something to learn!

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.
