Not rating this quite yet, because I think I did something wrong, I must have. I can taste the banana bread, and it’s quite promising, but then it is overwhelmingly bitter. So bitter it erases the taste of everything else. So I’m going to try a shorter steep with a lower temperature. If I get to the end of this 26 g sample without having a good cup, I will cry.

I haven’t had a banana tea yet that I like…

Is it bitter from the walnut maybe?

I had the same experience today when I made this. It tasted fine at the start but the bitterness really took over. Let me know if you can figure out a better steeping time.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
