First and foremost – Thanks MuppetLove

Many of you know I HATE BANANAS! BUT…I really wanted to put myself to the test and I thought this was the perfect way! I’m facing one of my food fears! LOL – The last two (plus) weeks have been overly trying for me and I really AM trying to keep a smile on my face! I figured by making fun of myself during this flavor experience might be a good way to start.

I have to admit – because of my hatred of ‘nanners’ – I found the Banana Aroma foul. Now…don’t get me wrong…it DOES smell like Bananas – and for those who LIKE Bananas – you probably LOVE this aroma. Because one of the MANY things I can’t stand about Bananas is the aroma…that is WHY I found this aroma foul!

I’m trying to put my personal ‘nana’ feelings aside. I see there is coconut in here, too! Perhaps that will be what I will try and focus on as I plug my nose and sip.

First sip.

Really not that bad!

Not overly Banana…YET.

I can taste the coconut, so that is a PLUS.

The black tea base is somewhat muted…but that’s ok.

The more I sip the more I am THANKING the coconut! I really wouldn’t change the flavor of this! The coconut makes the Banana do-able (for me).

I have noticed with Banana Flavored teas – the banana seems to pop out more as it cools so I am (almost) trying to chug this so that doesn’t happen!

At first I wasn’t going to rate this – because I am not the person to ask to judge Banana Flavored things, but, this wasn’t bad! Actually, it was pretty good…just keep in mind if you are a Banana Fan you might find it even more palatable!

I’m kind of back and forth about bananas myself. Sometimes I’ll crave them and eat a whole bunch, othertimes no amount of convincing will get me to eat one, or something that has banana in it. I do have a strong dislike for fake banana flavor though. I find it revolting. though other fake flavors such as strawberry don’t bother me. heh.

Banana in tea is a very difficult one for me as well. Though I believe I have found a couple that I like I have yet to LOVE a banana tea!

I’m with you Lynxie! It’s a love hate relationship (probably depending on the levels of potassium lol)

Tea Sipper

uh oh! I didn’t know you didn’t like banana! I’m the same way with tomatoes and there is no way I’d be eating any of those. I’m glad you didn’t find it too terrible though! :D

Lynxiebrat

I know I should eat more bananas, I beginning to get arthritis in my hands. I am not sure I could stomach Banana in tea even when I’m craving bananas……Banana nut bread however….Yum.

LOL – No worries MuppetLove!! I enjoyed expanding my horizons on this one :)
