From DAVIDsTEA

Like all amazing recipes, this one took years to perfect – and it was totally worth the wait. This tea miraculously captures the flavour of freshly-baked banana bread. The taste of real banana slices blends perfectly with almonds and the sweetness of dates and currants. It’s fragrant, with all the warmth of a loaf hot from the oven. As deliciously comforting as mama’s special recipe, but without the calories.

Ingredients: dates, currants, almonds, banana.

Unlike many other fans, I’m a new sipper to this one and was excited since I know it was a front runner in the back from the dead contest last year (speaking of, anyone know if they’re doing that again this year? It was great!)

Anyways, I used half of my 10g sample of this in a perfect mug. Since it was an herbal with no hibiscus in it, I treated it similar to forever nuts and just let the stuff sit while I puttered around for a while. I guess it was about 10-15 minutes of a steep but have no clue for sure.

The flavour was lovely, and I can definitely see how it deserves its name. It is definitely a sweet tea, however, so if you aren’t a fan of naturally sweet flavours you may want to steer away from this one. Since I love sweets, and am trying to cut them out of my diet, this tea is definitely one I’ll be getting more of. I just wish it didn’t take so much to make a good cup since it is heavy.

Kristin sent me a sample of this and I tried it two nights ago, but I forgot to log it. The scent of this tea is just like warm, fresh out of the oven banana nut bread. Heavier on the nuts in the aroma than I could pick out in the taste, but the banana was definitely there. There was a bit of raisiny flavor and light spices mixed in. I added a bit of honey after the first few sips to sweeten it up and see if the banana came out more. This was enjoyable, thank you for the sample, Kristin!

Thanks jessiwrites for sending me this to cross off my list :)

My first sips are quite enjoyable. Mostly nutty with a hint of banana. There is a bit of a strange aftertaste. Not aversive, but strange.

I could see this being quite delicious with some sweetening, but I’ll pass on that since it’s good as it too.

I’ll be at my halfway point for exams today! Once the afternoon rolls around I’ll have 3 down, 3 to go. Yes!

Update April 18/13: I just wrote my 4th exam, just two to go now.

I cold brewed this overnight last night to see what would happen. I’d say I like it about equal to the hot version. It doesn’t necessarily taste the same, I’d just drink it either way happily. It has a much more banana scent and taste here, and that bizarre sweet-like aftertaste is slightly stronger in the cold version. It’s as though the cold just made the tastes pop out.

I was craving something sweet tonight and as soon as I saw my little sample packet of David’s Banana Nut Bread I knew that this was exactly what I wanted. The smell from the open packet made me think instantly of something salty and sweet (almost like a chocolate covered pretzel), and I got really excited. After steeping, the tea liquor was really, really pale in the cup (almost clear) and I got a little nervous. The initial flavor was more like that heavy bread taste than bananas or nuts, but as it cooled it became sweeter and more nutty. Once I added in sweetener and the banana flavor came out I became completely satisfied. This is a pretty good tea, maybe not one I would have every day but I may buy some just to keep in my stash for nights like this where I’m craving something sweet without all of the calories (or caffeine!)

-Dry blend is made up of pieces of dried fruits and nuts. Fruits plump up in water.
-Dry blend smells salty-sweet and nutty. Tea liquor smells like warm nuts.
-Tea liquor is almost clear, with a pale yellow tint.
-Bready flavor with a nutty finish. Sweetener brings out more of the banana flavor.
-Best with sweetener.
-Very good tea. Lightly flavored. Initial taste is more of bread than bananas, but sweetener brings out a nice banana finish.

FIRST WEEK OF SCHOOL DONE- CHECK
PERFECT WARMING FALL TEA TO END THE NIGHT- CHECK

This tea really does taste like freshly baked BANANA NUT BREAD. I extremely enjoy this tea and I am pleasantly surprised at how good it tastes.

Taste: Almonds and banana mostly. With subtle flavors of other ingredients.
This one i actually steeped for 10 minutes because it was still weak even after 7min.

Dry leaf smell: Like bananas.

Looks like; trail mix

Color: light yellow/brown
So glad I picked this one up and just tried it. I can tell it will be great for after dinner(dessert) in the fall time.
Thank you DAVIDs TEA
P.S> Next I will review Indian Summer next on my jouney through the DAVIDs TEA fall collection of teas.
Goodnigight everyone!

While this smells delightful, it’s a bit on the heavy side, thus really pricy.
It does taste like banana nut bread*, but I suggest steeping it for atleast twice the amount of time suggested. Also, sweeteners make this undrinkable.

  • I don’t really have anything to add, but this ought to be shared. Shortest review ever.

So I finally stopped eating this blend like a sickeningly sweet trail mix and steeped it. When I was ever so elegantly chomping away on the blend it was the dates that really dominated everything. That is why my first sip gave me quite the surprise! No longer did it taste like fruity, syrupy chaos but a light oily banana thing which, if I pushed my imagination to the limit, I could envision being sort of “bready”..

It’s fascinating how the dates and nuts blend with the banana to make a powerful banana chips tea. It’s a different kind of banana from the Dulce Banana or Banana oolong teas. It leaves my mouth feeling like I have just eaten moist bread but without the crumbs and physical thickness. Not bad lukewarm. The dates make it very sweet. It does remind me vaguely of last year’s carrot cake, however, which I’m not the biggest fan of. Maybe not a keeper but a different and fun experience, for sure.

Another sample I got in my Davidstea order: holy sweet tea, batman!
Seriously though, this was a very sweet tea just on its own. I did think it tasted a bit like banana nut bread, but got more walnut flavor out of it than banana, possibly due to the sample size. And since I can’t eat gluten, I went mmm banana nut bread, how I miss it…

Well I got this as one of my free samples with my order. This was my first time trying Davids Tea and I have to say, so far I like it. It tastes just like Banana Nut Bread. I feel like I could drink this all fall and never regret it for one moment. I might actually order some, at least once I have cleared out some of the tea I already have.
