drank Banana Daiquiri by DAVIDsTEA
658 tasting notes

I like bananas, but cannot stand them in any form other than freshly peeled and by themselves. In juices or smoothies they make me gag so, needless to say, this didn’t appeal to me. But I got in on the $1 iced tea refill mug deal a few days ago and my two options for free tea were this or Read My Lips. I’m not into Read My Lips either, and thought since this is from a temporary collection I should give it a try.

It was refreshing, and the rooibos in this was actually nice. The banana wasn’t too bad, but I think this was largely because of the way the tea gets really diluted after they steep it and then pour it over ice. That was okay by me, this time. Anyway, not a total failure but not one I would buy or probably choose to drink again. I think if you were someone who loved everything banana (are there people like that?), this would be delicious because everything else tasted good.

Mmmm I must try this now! I do love banana :)

Jessie

Yes, you should! I actually had a bit more today and it’s not bad. I think the honeybush in it makes the difference. Very refreshing.

Indigobloom

I did, this afternoon! hot though. It was yummy, I quite enjoyed it! you were right about the banana

aisling of tea

Yeah, I was tempted by the iced tea deal, until I was told it was only on the Iced Tea of the Day. shrugs

I got the iced tea deal mug and I’m not even near a store. The mug is a great travel mug for only $9.50. And I am near a store every Tuesday now. If only hubby would let me leave ball and go for an iced tea every week. He’s just afraid of what I will spend.

I’m paranoid about drinking out of plastic. Otherwise I’d so be there every day!

Jessie

Yeah, mine is designated for cold teas only. I may have resisted, but my office has a new branch that happens to be on the same block as the Bloor West DT, and I’m slated to help out there fairly often, so it was going to happen. So far they’ve given me the choice of either tea of the day on ice, and for the price that’s enough selection for me.
