Man, I love Banana Oolong. I’m not too fussy on bananas, but this tea is so creamy and buttery, it doesn’t even bother me. However, the smell of the dry leaves and the tea itself is enough to make me vomit some days. I rarely drink this one because the smell is such a turn off! I’m always reminding myself that the tea is good, just don’t smell it! So it definitely loses big points for that – whoever heard of a tea that tastes awesome but smells nauseating?
It did, however, give me a chance to try out my new kettle! An early christmas present from the boy (he didn’t want me to wait!): http://www.cuisinart.ca/cuisinart_product.php?item_id=290&product_id=335&cat_id=13 … I’m in so much love.

Oh man… so jealous of that kettle. Definitely going on the sometime-in-the-future wishlist! (Also, I find the smell of dry Cranberry Pear a bit nauseating in its sweetness, but love it steeped. So it does happen!)

Haha thanks!! I love it, and could no longer live without it!! One that’s actually way cooler is the Breville One Touch! http://www.breville.ca/beverages/the-tea-maker.html
And I totally agree with you – I also find Cranberry Pear really nauseating, but it can taste quite good! I wish they had a cranberry tea that tasted like those Christmas cranberry body lotions/soaps that you get from places like Bath and Body Works/Body Shop though…

That kettle is super cool, but I have a ways to go before I can justify spending $300 on a kettle, especially given that I’m currently arguing with my car insurance company over a $25/month rate hike, haha.

Mmm, yes, my mouth is watering just thinking of more cranberry tea options. I really quite like them, and I think they’d be great in a juicy herbal tea :D

Bio

I am a student on a mission to spend all of my hard earned cash on tea, and don’t have time to waste on a bad cup of tea!
I love DavidsTea, mostly because it is easily accessible for me and I like my tea on the sweeter side. I’m looking to expand further into the tea world, especially in terms of oolong and herbal teas.
My favourite teas are anything spicy, especially with cloves and/or cinnamon, anything nutty, minty, earthy, floral or citrus-y.
I am forever on a mission for a life altering grapefruit tea.
