My teas arrived today from Butiki and I wanted to try at least one of them even though it’s been freakishly hot weather for San Francisco.

I steeped this for 4 minutes and I’m sure I added at least two teaspoons of tea. I love banana flavored things but was a bit disappointed in this. I wonder if I got a cup that had fewer banana chips because I feel like the flavor is just incredibly light. It smells very much like a dessert and I get the walnut flavor. It’s okay but given the description I just wanted something with more banana flavor. I will retry another time and let the Steepster world know if my impressions change… adding a tiny bit of sugar did make a difference with this.

On an unrelated note I am SO looking forward to the weekend and some fun time with this really cute guy I know! ;-)

I read a note on another banana tea where the reviewer said the banana flavor came out a lot more when the tea had cooled. Maybe try it that way?

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
