drank Banana Nut Bread by DAVIDsTEA
902 tasting notes

From my Fall Collection sampler.

I was rather surprised by how little “tea” the 25g pouch contained…I scooped out 2 heaping tsp, then decided just to dump the whole thing into Chloe and make a 3 cup pot. So, little disappointed that I won’t get a second chance at brewing it if I messed this up, but one more sample of tea down, right?

Okay, so it does taste like banana nut bread. It does. Very banana-y, not too terribly much on the bread part, but definitely the nuts. Not the sweetness, no, but I’m sure that would be fixed with a little brown sugar…

Oh, sweet baby jeebus.

ETA: Whatever you do, put it in a tsac or other disposable steeping device!! You will have to wash, really, truly wash whatever you steep it in otherwise.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Jaw dropping in awe of this tea….thinking I really truly need to cave before this tea is gone…Seriously need to clear out more teas from the cabinet though. Yum!

May I ask why the tsac is so highly recommended? Is it sticky, or does it just get all over? Trying to picture disastrous breville brewing of banana nut bread.

Imagine wet, crumbled-up bread. That was what was in the brew basket afterwards. I do wish I had tried this before I put in my David’s order this past Sunday (yes, I’ve got a problem, but I was afraid I’d miss the winter collection, and I did end up missing out on getting more Swampwater).

It is rather sad how little tea 25g made, though. It could get pricey.

Meghann I have enough for a cup maybe two if you want it I can send it to you… let me know if you want it.

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
