I used 1 tablespoon for 375 ml of water.

The banana flavour tastes only very mildly artificial. The genmaicha flavour is very well balanced with the banana. Genmaicha has a sweet roasted flavour. I don’t feel that the two flavours compliment each other the best.

As the tea cools, I’m feeling like the flavours are melding together. I’m getting a banana-rice crispies taste. The banana is fading a bit into the background.

I’m not getting a very strong cheesecake flavour but there is a tang and heaviness in the flavour.

As the tea cools further I’m detecting a distinct creaminess.

Thank you to Indigobloom for sharing this with me!

I kept smelling this one all day. I moved it to my coat pocket to avoid cross contamination with all the other teas I got today. Thanks again Indigobloom!!!

I think that the banana should win the award for most comical fruit. From the early days of slipping on a banana peel gags to these… plus it is so much fun to say! One of my favourite banana references: the Arrested Development Bluth Frozen Banana – there’s always money in the banana stand ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TlTM7Mbk_SU
