drank Copabanana by DAVIDsTEA
712 tasting notes

this is a tea i would never buy because i don’t eat banana-flavored anything. i only eat bananas.
but great that Davids sent me one of their little sample pouches cuz now i can try it despite my banana feelings! and i always wanna try a new tea. no matter what i suspect i MIGHT think of it i still ALWAYS wanna try it once.

but alas, yes, i mean, it DOES taste like banana. and not really fake tasting either. almost like they squeezed a banana’s juice out. and that is a big compliment coming from me :) so if you like bananas that aren’t bananas, you should totally buy this!

Know what you mean, in reverse. I don’t like to eat bananas, but I like banana flavoring.

Haha, I like trying everything once as well. I’ve actually found a few unexpected things I like that way! For example, Laoshan Black (I disliked black teas, especially straight!), and DavidsTea’s Dulce & Banana (hated chamomile… or so I thought.)

Shmiracles

hah interesting! cuz Dulce & Banana was the one where i realized i hate chamomile. i was like ‘this tea should be yummy, so why can’t i even like it’s scent?’ it wasn’t the banana that was turning me off, but something else, and that’s when i finally understood.
i would DEFINITELY drink Copabanana before Dulce&Banana. i might even say i like this banana tea! maybe i should try Banana Nut Bread. people seem to be comparing them a little.
i did go through the trouble to take my soggy used Copabanana tea bag the whole way home so i could start a cold brew. :)

I didn’t drink Copabanana and Banana Nut Bread close enough together to really remember how they differed. Other than Banana Nut Bread being great at clogging up filters… I don’t really mind either, but herbals just don’t seem to be my thing anymore (and they’re so expensive by weight! And don’t re-steep well.)
