this is a not a very good bagged tea. In contrast to the EB from H&S, this one leaves everything to be desired. it’s got a taste to it that’s neither smooth nor well blended. Not sure if it’s the teabag either but i’m getting a taste here that’s similar to paper but not quite. I’d be interested in trying this in a loose form, but given the choice, Harney is where it’s at!
I’m working on my cupboard this weekend. By that, I mean that i’m trying to get through a few of my samples and re-try some of my older teas that i need to figure out if i want to keep them to finish up, or gift them to a better home. I just happened to have a tea bag of this one and english breakfast from taylor’s , so i thought it would be fun this morning to compare the two.
soooo my problem with this tea is still that IF you don’t get enough banana chunks in it, it’s more cherry tisane than anything. However, when you get enough banana in here, it’s a great meld of the two. If i had banana chips on hand, i’d probably add a few to this to make it truly banana cherry. I have enough for another cup of this but since sharing is caring, this is off to a friend that i think will at least enjoy trying the cup. even if it ends up being more cherry than banana!
