Thanks to Amanda for the sample!
Although I love bananas (they’re the most efficient fruit), I’m not the biggest fan of banana flavorings. So why did I request a sample of this? Because my boyfriend LOVES banana flavored things, and because who doesn’t want to take every opportunity they can to get their boyfriend to drink tea?
When I brewed this hot, it was actually quite nice, but that was because I couldn’t really taste the bananas in it. I was reading reviews that it’s better iced, so I waited for it to cool down and sure enough, those banana flavors come through the cooler it is. Even cooled-down it’s drinkable, and this coming from someone who doesn’t really like banana flavored things. Never got a chance to toss some sugar in it, unfortunately. My boyfriend liked it so much hot that he didn’t even wait for it to cool down. Good thing I set a little bit aside to do some post-hot testing ;)
I told my boyfriend not to like this too much, since as we all know 52teas come and go. Perhaps they will reblend it, though, and if so I may pick it up knowing it’s something a banana lover and a banana-flavor unlover can both enjoy.
