Story Time: Not a whole lot to say. Got my parts in for my record player today. I will be able to pick it up and use it by Tuesday. Still need to figure out what record to play on it first…

Tea Time:
I was surprised I got this so quick. I ordered this early this week and got it today; Which is nice, since i was wanting to try a different tea.

First of all, the smell of this is awesome. It really smells like banana fosters. Tried to sip it really warm, but it just tasted like lightly spiced black tea. But as it cooled the flavors started to appear. It had a nice flavor of cinnamon and brown sugar with an after taste of banana and rum. Didn’t taste as good at room temperature though. I kinda wish I had some banana chips to mix in so the banana flavor is stronger. I have heard that Monkey Fart tastes better cold, so I will have to try this iced down.

Later that evening…
OMG, this is awesome. I put this is the freezer for a little bit, and now it taste like I am drinking a banana fosters. The banana is more apparent and the rummy, cinnamony, caramel is in full flavor. I hope this becomes permanent!!!

P.S. I was listening to this the whole time I was writing this and feel like sharing… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qslAuezumIA&feature=g-vrec

P.S.2: I am going to see if I can get another steep out of this…

Edit: Yes you can get two steepings from it….. WIN!

I have been drinking and makeing tea for me and my mom for most of my life and have been starting to get into loose teas.

I like fruity, spicy, strong teas, Chai’s, Black, and Rooibos. I have recently been trying and getting into Oolongs…

Really liked it, and makes a above average cup

It’s ok, but not great. Might need added ingredients or tweaking, and is below average.

Would only if nothing else was available. Would not recommend to someone.
