I really wanted a banana tea recently, so time to try this one! I also REALLY love any nutty teas — they are some of my favorites: walnut, pistachio, hazelnut, (though I haven’t actually seen any peanut teas yet!) I’ve had the plain keemun base from Butiki before… I liked it but it was tough to discern any flavor profiles. The base here seems a bit subdued even by the bit of banana and walnut flavor. The keemun is very mild flavored as it is. It’s nice to have a naturally flavored tea… no fake banana flavor! In my experience, keemuns are usually smoky, though not as much as a lapsang. This one is not smoky at all, so the sweetness pairs well with the banana and the walnut. I really like this one!

For some reason, peanut tea just doesn’t appeal to me the way that hazelnut, pistachio, or walnut do!

I’m with you, kittenna.

I agree, I just thought it was interesting there weren’t any peanut teas.

Actually, I just searched for ‘peanut’ and there are plenty of them. haha.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
