I’m the biggest sucker for banana and genmaicha so I simply had to order this, and I’m glad I did! I was one of one weird kids who loved that banana flavoured penicillin and my mother never had to fight me to make me take it. The smell of this tea reminded me of those days. For those who worry about the tea tasting like penicillin, it’s more of a banana flavoured candy kind of taste and the genmaicha softens it out perfectly. I’m not a cheesecake lover (again, I’m weird) but the creaminess in this tea is great.
Steep time: 2 mins. Added agave to bring out the creaminess.
Rating: 90 (banana and genmaicha? Yeah this is the tea of my dreams. Definitely rationing this one!)
