Classic impulse buy. I don’t even like banana-flavoured stuff that much, but come on, this has dates!

The dry mixture smells good, mostly like banana chips. Steeped, the tea smells like roasted mate. I’m one of those freaks who gets banana out of roasted mate. To my nose, this is a stronger, more obviously banana aroma.

The taste reminds me of roasted mate too. I should conduct an experiment sometime involving brewing this and Chocolate Rocket side-by-side, and see how similar these banana-like flavours truly are to me. This is also quite sweet. I can’t imagine adding anything to this. There is a hint of nuts but it’s not as strong as I had hoped.

Not bad, but I’d rather just eat some banana chips.

Hmm, you get banana out of mate? I have never noticed that before when I drink mate. Now I will have to go out and get some more Chocolate Rocket to test this out…..lol

Yeah, I’ve only experienced the banana undertones from gourmand-type mates, like Chocolate Rocket and 52teas’ Malted Chocomate, but never from a peppermint mate. It’s really strange.

I’m the same, Incendiare, with the banana-mate thing with those same two teas.

Maybe roasting the mate gives off that banana-like flavour.
