This was one of the free samples from my David’s tea order.

Steep notes: 2 tsp. leaf, 1 cup water, no additives, below parameters.

I definitely get chocolate- maybe banana if I look really hard, but it is not as strong as the chocolate in the scent. The taste is the same – all I get is a chocolate tea, maybe some creaminess from the banana.

Eh – not enough complexity, or enough banana, for me.

That is really interesting! I got no chocolate! Only banana!!!

So weird – I’m wondering if maybe it just depends on how much chocolate is in the sample? And if there were any banana pieces – I’m not really remembering seeing a whole lot of those, now that I think about it…

*Virtually any black tea (but lapsang/keemun!)
*Dancong oolong
*Sencha
*Dragonwell

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
