I enjoy banana teas, but haven’t really managed to find one that I adore. The best one I’ve had is the banana oolong from Davids, but it’s still not perfect! I saw this and knew that I had to try… The scent of this tea is very subtle. I don’t get much of a banana scent, but mostly a woodsy tea base.
Sipping… I’m really surprised by the banana! It truly pops on your tongue. It’s not at all like banana runts, but more like dried banana chips. The banana and walnut go so well with the tea base. There is a little bit of a drying sensation, but I think it’s from the walnut and the tea base. It reminds me a bit of a banana nut muffin without the pastry/muffin flavors. It’s smooth and rich and doesn’t taste artificial. I’d like to see this have a more buttery/banana bread-like flavor, but I’m very happy with this blend.
