I brewed some of this for today’s iced tea sipping. Delicious as always … still one of my faves from 52Teas … this one is perfectly peach and banana. Love it.
Another Christmas tea sample from 52teas. There is such a strong banana aroma to this tea that I had to increase the rating from the last tasting. The flavor that comes through is a smooth sweet sencha with banana and light peach flavors. I really am getting banana candy taste in this tea. I used the whole sample (about 4 tsp) in a 3 cup teapot and steeped for 2 minutes. There were several floaty bits in this tea, but I blame my strainer as it wasn’t as fine a strainer as the IngenuTea strainer I usually use. This tea was very warming and exactly what I didn’t know I needed tonight. Very delicious!
Another sample from LiberTEAS! Yum!
This one smells oddly familiar to me; I wonder if it’s another 52teas blend that I’m thinking of? I can’t place it though. It’s a good sort of familiar though! It does smell banana-y/peachy.
I steeped this one for a conservative 2 minutes, and it perhaps could have used a bit more to add a bit of strength, but the plus side is that I’m rewarded with zero astringency! And the flavours are still there. I can taste a bit of seaweedy green tea, and then a delicious peachy flavour comes out, with creamy banana lurking in the background. I feel like the peach flavour isn’t quite as tasty as I would have liked – it tastes almost like a slightly underripe peach where the flavour isn’t fully developed, instead of a juicy, ripe, dripping peach. Still tasty though. A bit of sugar would perhaps make the flavours come out more, but I am still determined to avoid that!
I had written off most flavoured green teas because I wasn’t enjoying them, but this one is good. I think it’s partially because for whatever reason, I’m not always a big fan of citrus mixed with green tea, and DavidsTea put out what seemed like quite a number of those recently, none of which I particularly cared for.
I’m looking forward to additional infusions of this one… there’s a big chunk of presumably peach in my infuser, and I’m hoping that a bit of sitting wet will help the flavour to come out in the second cup. I’m contemplating cold-brewing the rest of my sample of this one, as I think it would do well…
I’ve actually backlogged this on the same day!
Oh, Frank!! I’m so excited that this tea is included in the sampler!! I love bananas and peaches, and have been eyeing this one really hard!
I’m loving this one!! It’s full-on banana madness, with a side party of peach, and there’s still green tea, and it’s delicious. I bet it’d be awesome iced in the summer; I’m really enjoying it hot!
Second steep: 5 min, much more peach, and the same banana rungs taste. Yum!!!
Bananas and peaches?
I don’t think I’ve ever encountered this particular flavor combination in a tea, although I’m sure Jamba Juice has a smoothie or two with both fruits in it. Thanks to the sample that Liberteas sent, I’ll be trying this tea out, iced.
It smells wonderful, nice and fruity.
Yum! The banana really pops in this tea. The peach isn’t as strong, but I know it’s there because of the sweetness that lingers on the tongue. It’s another great summer blend from 52teas.
This deceptively simple blend is surprisingly yummy!
Mildy fruity and faintly candy-esque. And the chinese green sencha really does taste buttery! Very smooth and almost creamy in the aftertaste.
I sense banana taffy and peach jolly ranchers—but it’s not cloying at all—just a sweetness that serves to enhance the “softness” of the green tea.
Pretty enjoyable. I like it. :)
