So, this is one that I had to had to try, because I love chocolate teas, and I do like bananas. I liked Banana Nut Bread, but not Dulce and Banana so much, and I think that the Banana Oolong had stevia, so I shied away from that one. But anyways, this one is <3 dreamy <3 in all its chocolatey banana goodness.

Dry leaf, it smells warm and rich and chocolatey with a bit of the banana cream pie after note. Actually, the smell kinda reminds me of Nilla wafers with pudding and bananas. Brewed, it is pretty true to taste, though I did add milk and sugar. Milk made it creamy like the pie, and the sugar just tweaked the sweetness up a little. I ought to try this alone to judge the taste better, but I pretty much always add milk and sugar to my teas. It is not as heavy and rich as Chocolate Orange Pu Erh, and is a little reminiscent of Checkmate, but a little heavier than that…I’d say that it is somewhere between Checkmate and Love Tea #7.

I have to say that I think the 10g bag I got is gonna go pretty fast, and I will need to get a bigger bag soon.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are…

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty (except rose), and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

Yes, I do trades…usually on request though. See something you want to try in my cupboard? Just shoot me a message and I’ll see what I can do!

Uh, guess that’s it.
