I’ve actually drunk this a number of times before, just haven’t been posting notes on Steepster as my spring/summer was too busy – but it’s Autumn now so I’m back, and I’m all about the Tea again!

Anyhoo, when I first got out of bed this lovely rainy Saturday morning I knew straight away that this was what I was going to start my day with .. I’ve just finished my 2nd cup now and it really was what I was after: mellow, slightly sweet, relaxing (I’m prepping for a long lazy day at home without the kids) :P

I’d added a little milk to my first cup without really thinking and it tasted a little too weak .. So for the second I added some more fresh leaves/dried banana to the pot (with first brew leaves still in) and brewed for longer, probably a good 10-15min or so .. It still wasn’t as quite as strong as I was wanting, so I then added a tea spoon of sugar, and by slurping I got that Mmm Banana hit I was craving ..

I probably won’t be ordering another pouch of this when I run out as shipping from the states eats up a lot of money, and I’d like to try other companies tea too .. But I’m certainly glad I did at least once ..

Would I recommend it for ‘something different’ – Absolutely!

Preparation

For many years I only drank coffee, and the occasional herbal tisane .. But eventually I got sick of people complaining that I had no ‘real tea’ in the house so I bought a box of cheap tea bags and remembered WHY I didn’t drink the stuff!

And so life went on until the day an English friend invited me to visit her home .. She made us a pot of (loose leaf) Earl Grey to enjoy in the garden – and finally I’d found a Tea that I truly wanted to drink!

Now-a-days my favourite alternates between home-made Masala Chai, Lady Grey with a few extra drops of Sweet Orange Essential Oil, Dessert Flavoured Blacks, and my latest interest is Dragon Peal Jasmine ..

any less = I wouldn’t drink it again
70 – 80 = Nice, but there’s better
80 – 90 = Mmm, Yummy Stuff ..
90 – 100 = Unique, Stand-Outs, & Can Not Be Withouts!
