Ew. I was crazy about this when it was re-released last year – but I quickly grew to hate it. Maybe its the nuts, I don’t know, but I just had to dump the rest down the drain.

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.

This was part of a Christmas pack I got that I’m just getting to now. I found this tea generally underwhelming. Brewed up there’s a really nice buttery and nutty aroma that really does evoke baked goods. I wish it tasted like it smells though. I didn’t get a lot of flavours besides the banana. There’s a very artificial tasting sweetness to it and although I like a lot of dessert teas, the sweetness in this one didn’t particularly agree with me both initially and with the lingering aftertaste. I’m glad I only have a small tin of it.
Flavors: Baked Bread, banana, Butter, Nuts
I met up with a friend in the vicinity of a DavidsTea yesterday, so I took the opportunity to grab a couple of teas that I’ve heard really good things about. Grabbed this one along with Forever Nuts. I drank Forever Nuts yesterday while catching up on The Good Wife Season 6 before I start the last season, and I enjoyed it, though I don’t have any notes this time.
Banana Nut Bread is another very heavy tea. I got 30g, but it is literally only enough tea for about 2 16oz cups. I left it to steep for about 10 mins, since I want all the flavour I can get, if I’m only going to have 2 cups of it. It smells pretty good, almost like an actual banana loaf with a hint of nuts and dates.
Taste is just OK. I don’t get a whole lot of the banana flavour, probably because the sales assistant only manages to get two tiny pieces into my purchase, one of which I made sure to include in my steep this time, and one for next time. I do get a lot of nut flavours, mixed with a kind of heavy sweetness that sits kind of weirdly on the tongue. I don’t really taste the dates either, but maybe I just can’t identify them in the rather confusing mix of flavours. I’m glad I got to try this one, but I don’t think I would get this again. I enjoyed Forever Nuts a lot more!
Edit: As I’m trying to finish this cup, I’ve decided that I actually don’t like it at all. It leaves a weird aftertaste, kind of sour, which doesn’t make sense to the sweetness of the tea. Maybe I’ll try the rest iced.
It steeps a tan colour and the aroma is mostly banana, but there is so much more once you take a sip.This tea tastes like a banana bread muffin. The loose leaf has pieces of dried banana of candied fruits and nuts in it, so I guess that shouldn’t be surprising. You can really taste the fruity banana and lots of different spices. The tea is sweet, but I think that is a given for a blend called “Banana Nut Blend”.

I love bananas but I’m usually always disappointed in banana teas. This one is no exception. I did not like it the first time I had it. I had some more left and decided to try again. I brewed it double strength and it was way better but still not a favorite. This time it was drinkable instead of just tossing it in the sink.
I know this is going to sound Banana’s, but the first time I smelled this tea it reminded me of eggnog.
Don’t ask me why, but all I could smell was eggnog. I actually sat there for a while soaking up the smell to see if it would change, and all I could still smell was eggnog.
Out of curiosity I asked my mom and bf to tell me what it smelled like, and they both said like bananas. Go figure lol.
Anyways, I was really curious to try this tea because I’ve never had a banana flavoured tea before. Looking at the pieces individually, I could see dried banana pieces, almonds, dates and currants. So far it was looking good.
While I was steeping I noticed my water wasn’t really changing colour. I decided to give it an extra few minutes, and so my actual steep time was just under 10 minutes.
When it was finally done, the smell was divine! It smelled like warm banana bread straight from the oven!
The taste was almost on par with the smell. It was very sweet, buttery, nutty, and banana-y. I have to say it was pretty good for my first banana flavoured tea. Since it’s caffeine free it makes for a nice evening tea.
I noticed after steeping it left quite a mess in my infuser. Everything was really soft and mushy. I wouldn’t recommend using small infusers for this tea because cleaning it would be a pain. My guess is this is one-time-steep-only tea, but nevertheless I still enjoyed it.
