drank Butterscotch Banana by 52teas
450 tasting notes

Roswell strange wasn’t kidding when she said this mason jar is massive. Like it’s huge. and she also suggested it could be use to hasten sip downage, and so I decided to have this tea this afternoon. I already know i’m not going to be reordering it, because the banana pudding black tea is way, way better (in my opinion), and although this isn’t bad, it just pales in comparison. Add to that that I drank like double the amount just so I could use up more tea and you have me disliking it even more. I can’t even pinpoint what it was about this tea that I didn’t like-I reduced the steeping time a bit which actually went a long way in toning down the rather loud base, and I do love me some butterscotch and some banana, but perhaps not mixed together? There was something a bit cloying about this tea that I don’t find to be the case with the banana pudding tea.

So yeah, getting closer to a sip down, although I’m not quite there yet.

Hastening sip-downage is always a good idea.

Roswell Strange

Awe, that’s sad. I really like this one, probably as much as Banana Pudding.

Hey, want the rest of it then?

Roswell Strange

How much do you have left? I still have half a pouch or so – so I definitely don’t need to be adding lots more to my cupboard…

Like almost a whole pouch. But you won’t be “adding it to your cupboard” because it’s just..enhancing what’s already there. It isn’t a new tea ;)

Roswell Strange

Technicalities ;) But sure, if you really don’t want it. I’ll definitely use it – and it’ll make me feel less guilty about being so close to sipping down my other 52Teas banana teas. I’ve been hoarding them for fear I’ll run out of yummy banana teas…

Well, it’s been slightly over six months since I’ve joined steepster, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about this community. Like many of you, I began my foray into the world of loose-leaf tea by discovering David’s Tea, and although I’ve ventured out and have discovered many other companies that I’m extremely fond of, there are still many of David’s teas that I hold close to my heart and I will always appreciate it as a starting point for my journey.

As for my preferences, I tend to prefer bold black tea, flavoured and unflavoured alike, and I almost always take my blacks with cream and sugar. This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy a good, flavoured white though, and I’m slowly making my way through the incredibly confusing world of oolongs and greens. I am also not a fan of rooibos, although I am starting to suspect green rooibos may be ok, but you know how it is: when you’ve decided you detest a certain ingredient, you’ll notice it everywhere—perhaps even where it doesn’t exist!

Things other than tea: I’m engaged to be married to my best friend, and feel like the richest woman on the planet because of it. I am also a veracious reader, and I also happen to have an obsession with fragrances, and have amassed quite a collection, although it pales in comparison to some collections out there! As a result of this obsession, I also follow several fragrance blogs, and am always up for a chat about scent. I’m also almost completely blind, and this does indeed mean that I come complete with a guide dog, who unlike me, hales from the sunny California campus of Guide dogs for the Blind. I think I’ve rambled on long enough, but if there’s anything you’d like to know or if you just feel like chatting to someone, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.
