I noticed that my sample didn’t contain any of the banana chips depicted in the online image, so perhaps that might be why mine lacked the banana taste that I was anticipating? Or is this normal? In any case, my sample is very nut intensive, which isn’t the best fit for my taste. Other not-so-great points about this tisane: I had to use my entire sample in one go and there is a slight oil film on this tea, which I find a little unappetizing. Overall not a bad tea, just not one that best suits my taste.

Mine doesn’t have that many banana chips in it either. Mostly dried dates and currants.

Mine had no banana chips :( @Incendiare – did yours taste at all like bananas?

Fjellrev

Oddly enough, it still does. Just a bit like banana chips. But it smells more like it than tastes. You don’t seem to be missing out even though I have a couple in there.

Good to know that I’m not missing out. I was considering trying it again with my next order, and making sure I had some banana in there somewhere. But if it doesn’t make too much difference, I’ll just stick to trying new and potentially more exciting options.

I think the small off-white chunks in the tea are still banana so even if you don’t get a chip you still have banana in it. Also I found mine nutty too. And I mean it is called banana nut bread but I like banana taste more than nut taste. I found that if you add a little bit of agave to the tea it bring out the banana flavour :)

@Daniella T I will have to give your agave suggestion a try

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
