Holy wow! This is so, so good. I was so excited when I ordered this tea and I tried to lower my expectations before I sipped it because I LOVE bananas and I know it’s hard to find good banana flavored things. Seriously though, this is a great banana tea.
So, so smooth. Almost no astringency. The banana is creamy and slightly sweet.. SO creamy. I didn’t need any sugar/milk/sweetener with this cup. What I love about this tea is the intensity of flavor. It’s not like I’m getting occasional whiffs of banana, which is something that is frustrating when trying out flavored blacks.. you know, teas that are more “scented” than actually “flavored”. This tea stood well on it’s own even as sipped it through dinner.
This is a great intro to 52Teas and I can’t wait to try the others from my recent order.
