So all morning I have had Bobby Bloom’s Montego Bay stuck in my head, not really sure why seeing as that is a 70s song and just a bit before my time, but hey I guess it could be worse like a jimmy buffet song or something.

Again I purchased this herbal solely based on the dry smell, it seemed like it would brew a tasty cup; however after reading a few of the reviews on here I was scared I might be left with a slightly banana flavored cup of warm water. Thankfully though this was not the case.

Dry this blend has a powerful fruit smell that is heavily encompassed with Banana, there are big chunks of everything, its bright and colorful and there is huge banana chips in it…wait a minute are you sure this is tea and not something you mix with yogurt?

The brewed beverage has a nice banana taste to it, with just a touch of sugar added (less than 1tsp) it gave this blend the perfect little sweet kick that it needed, otherwise I could see where people are getting the watered down banana flavor from. Overall it isn’t a terrible blend, it does lack a bit in the flavor department for all the stuff in the blend but otherwise it is pretty tasty. Not sure if I would rush out to get more of this blend though, need to have a couple more cups before I can decide.

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
