What’s the matter? You never heard of Granana?

Well, okay, me either. But it sounded like fun and so here it is. Premium shou mei white tea blended with freeze-dried grapes and bananas, and organic flavors. A little sweet, a little tart; a little smooth, a little piquant… One thing I can almost guarantee is that you won’t find this blend any where else. It’s up for you to tell me whether that’s a good thing or not. =)

Backlog:

A really odd combination.

The dry leaf aroma is very candy-like … reminiscent of what I might experience if I opened a bag of runts or nerds. Or any other fruity willy wonka candy, which seems appropriate since I know that here on Steepster, we’ve called Frank the Willy Wonka of teas.

And it tastes very candy like. Unfortunately, we’re talking my least favorite two candy flavors: I really dislike grape flavored candy (or sodas, or ice pops, or just about anything grape flavored. I don’t even really care for grape juice. I like the fruit. And only the fruit. And I guess … there are some grape teas that I like.)

And as much as I love banana flavored teas … I’m not crazy about this. I think that the sweet, candy-ish grape-i-ness together with the candy banana just … wasn’t … making me a happy tea drinker.

So, this one just may go down in history as my least favorite 52Teas blend. I guess it was bound to happen, right?

That said … it wasn’t horrible, it just … wasn’t my favorite tea. It wasn’t making me want to do the happy tea dance. But this tea is not horrible, I like the way the earthy notes of the shou mei seem to “ground” the candy-like flavors just a tad, making it a little less candy-ish.

A fair representation of banana and grape, but, just not my favorite cuppa.

Sounds strange.

I was saving this tea to try for when I finally had some time to chill. I’ve been so busy with work and getting my Comic Con costumes ready. But I’m so excited for it :D
This tea is just silly. It has a nice fruity and sweet white tea base with nice notes of (you guessed it) banana and grape. The dominate flavor to me is the grape with banana lingering in the aftertaste. The flavors are more on the candy side but light enough to where you can catch the white tea in action. I like this tea because it is different. Banana and grape are never in the same boat.. Which is disappointing becuase their obviously good friends!

This was wonderful with just a touch of sugar! Lots of fruit flavour, and a super nice base. I loved that I definitely did get a lot of both the banana and the grape. This is a tea that is different, but that I think I could drink pretty frequently.

I was looking forward to trying this new blend as good grape teas are hard to come by. The aroma of the dry tea screams both grape and banana and really speaks to the quality of the blend. Once brewed both these flavors continue to have a strong presence but work very well together and almost make a bubble gum or cotton candy like flavoring. Using the Shou Mei as a base was a great touch as it adds another fruitiness layer to the brew while cutting through some of the sweetness. The overall result is a wonderfully refreshing fruity tea that is great both hot and over ice. (… and I am so glad I snapped up a few extra pouches as this one is not going to last long in my house)
