This was tasty. I’m almost tempted to buy a tin. but not quite enough. I have so many juice teas already… I do not need another. but the cinnamon. Oh how I love cinnamon!! when it’s in a dessert. Not so much as a spicy candy. bleh.
It’s very rich, this one. And like I said, the cinnamon… mmmm. it just adds something special here. and maybe the banana as well. I like banana in my teas, apparently. Though I’ve never considered that option til today. It seems I like it enough to forgive the evil doings of hibby! ha!
You know what… maybe I’ll add a dash of cinnamon to some of my other fruity teas. Maybe then I won’t have to add yet another tea to my cupboard!! Not sure what to do about adding banana. Plantain chips probably would not do the trick!

heeey good idea! a dash of cinnamon.. mm! Let us know how it turns out – I would try it but… this is pretty much my only juice tea right now, which is probably why I’m so obsessed with it at the moment haha!

Indigobloom

Oh I plan on trying it out soon! I can’t wait. It’d be amazing if it worked to hide the hibby! eeeeevil sour hibby

Daniel Scott

How big are the banana pieces? Is it possible to pick them out?

Indigobloom

Hmm, they aren’t that big. I’m sure I could pick them out, but being so small it’s hard to differentiate what’s what. Dried banana is pretty dense so I could go by that

Daniel Scott – if you’re allergic, I probably wouldn’t go with this tea. The banana chunks aren’t like in Banana Oolong (i.e., blatantly obvious), if I recall correctly.

Daniel Scott

Okay, thanks Krystaleyn!

Really, it’s a shame; it’s a good cause. But I’ve gotten some people into tea-drinking recently, so perhaps it could be a gift for someone at some point.

Indigobloom

yeah I think it’d make a great gift, esp if they aren’t big on caffeine!

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
