From 52teas

Here’s our premium black teas blended with real freeze-dried bananas, chopped walnuts and natural flavors. The banana is a bit strong on the nose, but the bread, walnuts and touch of butter are all there in the cup. This is an awesome tea, probably even better with a touch of cream and sugar. I’m looking forward to all of your reviews on Steepster.

I thought I would do something different today and have this tea with milk and just a touch of sugar. It was very sweet, it could probably have done without the sugar, but the milk made it very creamy and it brought out the banana flavour. I might have it with milk more often!

OMG! One sip of this is utter bliss! I’m not normally a banana fan (there was an Incident in CA with a spider that terrifies me to this day), but I do like banana bread and the flavor of banana, artificial and natural.

This is a natural flavor, pleasing and delicious! I taste buttery banana bread, just like Mom makes. It doesn’t beat Pancake Breakfast as my favorite 52teas black tea, but it’s definitely an any-time-of-day cuppa. Lip-smackin’ delish!

Cofftea

Did you try his banana matcha? Tasted exactly like eating banana runtz w/ matcha.

KeenTeaThyme

Cofftea – OK, I must get! Sounds awesome!

QuiltGuppy

Spiders. ((shudder)) I’m terrified of them, too.

Ottawa Tea

My favorite (flavoured) tea of all time I think…

KeenTeaThyme

@QG: it was under the nape of the banana bunch. I still have nightmares about it.

Bumping up, I had this today in my insulted L.L. Bean Canteen and it stayed perfect for over 9 hrs and yes, I made a lot. Nevertheless, I got the steep time perfect this time and it is amazing. Mind you I am not a huge fan of banana tea but this one looked awesome and I am so happy I got this.

Definitely getting the banana on this pot, which is appropriate, since there was a lot of banana in the dry mix that I spooned into the basket this morning. I did a four minute steep, and all is well. I’m finally tasting the banana and walnut like I should, though I still don’t get buttery from it. Ah well, two out of three isn’t bad, amiright?

It is a quiet morning, off from work today, and just trying to steel myself against the pain that will be grocery shopping today. You’d think there was a big food-based holiday tomorrow or something, from the craziness. Unfortunately I can’t put off the trip, since the grocery store will be closed tomorrow. C’mon, people, not everybody has family or friends to hang with or even be off from work tomorrow! I’m a bit bitter, can you tell? Just like the base of this tea (see? still tea related)!

Life is good again. My three pouches of the reblend came yesterday. Heaven and joy!

I had this hot while making pancakes and cold while making lunch. It was blissful both ways. Banana with a hint of nuts, and a great nilgiri base. This tea is officially my all time favorite.

This one is good, but I’m not really getting anything more than a nice banana flavor, no real butter so to speak. Though, I will note that I added sweetener so maybe that has overwhelmed the butter? This isn’t especially unique from other banana flavored teas in my opinion.

I totally agree! It sounded so good and had such good reviews, but it let me down. It must just be the new re-blend because it sounds like older versions were quite tasty.

jeweledthumb

@ashleyelizabeth: Oh that’s a shame (of the older version really being like hot buttered banana bread). The idea of that seems so nice.

Okay, I’m trying to be a better little steepster reviewer, so here goes my THIRD review in THREE days! (Thank you, thank you, hold your applause!)

After trying Bananas Foster which I was less than satisfied with (sorry Frank!) I was digging through my sample box and found a sample of Hot Buttered Banana Bread. Since I was still looking for that banana satisfaction, I gave it a go.

This is WAY better than the Bananas Foster, but still only a tiny bit of banana… I think you can definitely pick up the other flavors in this one, though, which makes it a satisfying cup. A little bit of walnut, a smooth butter, and then the banana underneath it all.

As usual, I made this with soymilk, which I’m sure changes the taste just slightly. I have a feeling that as this cup cools off, the flavors are just going to get stronger and more delicious. Yep, just took another sip and the banana is coming out more and more.

Glad this one doesn’t have cinnamon in it because that’s what killed the hot cup of bananas foster. Yum yum!

Soymilk. scrapes tongue and makes wincing face

Oh well, to each their own, I guess. I’m glad you enjoyed the tea. :) And congrats on your new initiative to record your tasting notes. I always look forward to reading these.

Sorry for tainting my tea! I like the flavor, but it’s also to cool it down because I’m too impatient in the mornings to wait to get my caffeine fix haha ;)

[Backlogging] – I thought that I wrote a tasting note for this tea, but I guess not! This tea was really a bit of a miss for me. It sounded incredible! Banana bread is one of my most favorite things to bake and eat! When I made this cup, I was disappointed to be tasting mostly a dry walnut, a bit of fake banana and some astringent black tea. I really wish that I could bring out more of that buttery bread flavor, but I just can’t do it. I dislike missing out on the buttery flavors that others are tasting… not sure how I can get that flavor to develop in my cup. So sad that this blend was a miss for me. So sad!

I only have a min to post…. but this is amazing!!!! it smells like heaven, and tastes just like buttered banana bread in the most realistic fashion I could never fathom… not chemically at all!-which I had feared.
I know I shouldn’t but I’m very tempted to see how this is with milk.
Anyhow, will write more later. A high rating here, partially for the sheer novelty :)

Indigobloom

Fantastic! At first sip there’s a very natural tasting rich banana flavor. That moves to a smooth black tea with a touch of walnut, and then a lovely buttery finish. So very, very, very delicious. I’m going for a second steep.

Jenn

You’re getting some of this one in your sample package for sure!
