So much cardamom, yum! I don’t get as much bready, bakey flavors in this as I usually do with 52teas pastry and breakfast based teas. But this is still cardamom coconuty goodness and I like it, especially in the morning

There’s something about this one that smells kind of weird, but I don’t taste it at all. I’m really not sure what it is.
This one tastes just like banana oatmeal to me. It’s warm and comforting, and I wish this had caffeine because it would be a great morning tea! Even without, I still like it quiet a lot .

Thanks to a deal from a year or so ago, I have a ton of 2oz bags of this. Luckily it works out since this tends to be a tea I can reach for when I’m not sure what I want.
I finally brought a bag in to work today and enjoyed a cup this morning

One of my favs to drink at work too. I got it from you actually! Thanks for introducing me!

This is my second purchase of this tea. I really love it, and I’m going to be really sad when I run out again. I’ve cold brewed this one and really like it this way and hot

drank Bananas Foster by 52teas

Looks like this one is a reblend of a loved classic. Sadly, I never tried that one, and I’ve never had bananas foster, AND I have a cold currently, so this probably isn’t the most helpful of reviews. Oops!

This tea definitely has banana flavor, which makes me really happy! I am always saying banana teas don’t have enough banana, so this is a nice change. I actually kind of want this banana flavor in an oolong.
The banana is at the front of the sip, and right after that is some tartness. Should that be there? I’m not sure. It could also be a product of less than optimal brewing conditions on my part, or my cold interfering with flavor.
There’s also a creaminess, that makes me want to say whipped cream? vanilla ice cream? something along those lines.

I like this tea, but honestly it just makes me want a banana cream pie oolong. Does that exist? I wouldn’t be surprised if 52teas has already tackled that one

Edit: I didn’t realize I had already reviewed this and lamented the lack of banana flavor. It’s amazing what time/ different brewing parameters/ etc can do!

I did a Banana Oolong. Frank did a Coconut Banana Cream Pie Houjicha. But a Banana Cream Pie Oolong sounds pretty wonderful. I may have to take that into consideration.

tea-sipper

YES that was one of my favorites of Frank’s blends. Butiki had a nice banana oolong too.

This one makes me super nostalgic of my early tea days. It reminds me of Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish, which was one of my first 52Teas ever.

I definitely get the cookie taste very well in this one. The raspberry adds some tartness without being too intense (ie. it’s not like hibiscus). I don’t get a ton of almond, but I’m still very happy with how this one is. I like the honeybush, as opposed to rooibos

Bio

I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, Texas, and California, and I’m currently in Oklahoma while the boyfriend gets his grad schooling on.

I’ve been into tea for about five years now and my favorite thing is that there is still so much to learn! I personally prefer black and oolong teas, though I love trying new teas whatever they may be.

I also knit quite a bit and sell things on my etsy when I’m not busy with school.
