While on vacation, I happened across a small store selling locally-made goods, including a few small bags of Always Summer Herbs’ teas. The others were things I expected to dislike, but I did pick up this one due to the cheap price.

The dry leaf smells very much like a Laffy Taffy: sweet, fake banana. Not a bad scent, but definitely not something that I particularly want to have as a tea. Oddly, however, the liquor has no such smell, instead just reminding me of a generic, dull black tea.

As I sip it, I wish that it had captured that Laffy Taffy smell in the taste, because what it turned out to be is much more disappointing. For the most part, it just tastes metallic, although there’s a very light touch of raspberry and banana, in both the sipping and the aftertaste. Very disappointing, I’m glad this was only an ounce.

I’m on my last of this…I was dreading the day…sigh…I really LOVE this tea. I am going to see how many steeps I can get out of it. There is a tad more loose leaf steeping and for longer. I however, didn’t get the water hot enough this time around…still a great cup tho!

I was looking for something to sip on during and after my lunch (I had a vegan Dr. McDougall’s Soup Bowl – The Curry Lentil kind) and this worked well!!!

I drank this yesterday too and it’s been teasing me again ever since. I really like this tea. Now I must REALLY order more…I am very low…only a few more table spoons left. I did want to add that this one is good for multiple infusions. I am on my 3rd at the moment…

This is the last of my tea from Always Summer Herbs in Slippery Rock, PA, and I must order more!!! Pronto! It says a floral scent with hint of watermelon. After steeping a little longer than suggested I DO smell it. It’s slight but nice. This is a very pure tea. Most people could handle this blend because it’s not bitter or too much of a deep tea taste. Great spring/summer sip.
