My first couple of sips, I thought it tasted more like banana pudding than nut bread. As the cup cooled the nuttiness came out. Me likey. Too bad it’s a small seasonal sample. I used half the sample for one cup. At least it’ll be a quick sipdown.

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.

Decided to work on sipping down this oldish tea.
I don’t knowwwww how I feel about this.
On one hand it’s a pretty good herbal option to drink at night – here it is 11:30 and i’ve just finished it…
but on the other hand it’s gotta have Stevia in it, it’s leaving a super weird taste in my mouth.
I also feel that they would have had better luck creating a “banana bread” tea if they’d used some kind of bready, malty black tea as a base, rather than a bunch of random fruity things.
On top of that, i wish I could photograph my steeper for you because it’s straight up nastayyy…. it looks like someone threw up in it. Mushy chunks of who knows what.
Sorry to be gross, but it was very offputting.
So, to sum up…this isn’t terrible, but i sure wouldn’t buy it today. and I’m questioning how I’m going to polish off the rest of the bag asap. Cold brew?? hmmmmm.
This tea, I should actually try to buy. I got a partial package in a purchase from another Steepster-ite (I probably should try to find her name; I got a few teas from her).
I taste banana…it is very obviously banana. But, it tastes more like the banana bread than just straight banana. I taste roasted nuts, but honest to gosh…it just tastes like liquid banana bread.
I do sweeten all of my teas when I drink them. I don’t like unsweetened tea, though I could have gotten away with less sweetener.
So I finally got around to purchasing some Banana Nut Bread before they took it off the shelves for the winter collection. I am not 100% sure if tea goes bad or how long it sits there or if the stuff at the bottom of the canister is dried out. I only bought 25g to test it out cause my friends have told me how its the best one they have. However when i took it home and brewed my first cup i was kind of disappointing, i don’t taste banana at all just nuts. Which is not a bad thing because i do love Forever Nuts but i really was hoping to taste banana :(
I was a little hesitant about trying this tea, because I have a love-hate relationship with bananas… but I’m so glad that I did!
The suggested steeping time is 4-7 minutes, but I just left the tea in. I think this approach might be best. Some bits (I think it’s banana) floats to the top, but it’s all delicious anyway. This tea reminds me a little bit of the banana flavoured penicillin I had as a child, so depending on whether or not you liked that taste, you might like of hate this tea!
