I knew this was still on my desk staring at me for a reason! I had a cup a while back but didn’t have time to give it a proper first review. I remember REALLY liking it – so – I am jumping into this one again! Here we go!
Dry aroma is airy and pleasant. I LOVE the flat spear shaped leaves :)
Once infused it’s a very warm garden type smell…not flowers, per say, but greens! It’s lovely! There is a bit of sweetness and a little nuttiness to it and I think it’s wonderful!
The flavor of this is remarkable. It’s clean and sweet but not too sweet. It’s slightly nutty. I didn’t really pick up on the banana notes until I re-read the description…and as a BANANA HATER I would say it’s more of a Plantain comparison than Banana for me…maybe because it’s just a hint of banana and not an actual flavoring…not sure…but this is a terrific green tea! (AND NO – I know there isn’t actual banana in this tea! I had someone ask me what I meant by that…it’s just a taste on the tongue I could pick up!!) It also has a lovely aftertaste that lingers and almost seems to freshen my breath!
