Such a pretty light gold color. This is sweet on it’s own, but also good with added sweetener and a splash of milk.

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.

Sipdown! I’m two days behind on the Hannukah sipdown countdown, but I haven’t given up.
This blend tastes exactly like banana nut bread. It does. But… it’s got that heavy sweetness that certain DT, Teavana, and T2 blends have, where it’s hot and sweet and flavorful but doesn’t taste anything like actual tea or any traditional tisanes. It’s a pleasant brew but my tastes have mostly shifted away from this.
This tea is one of my absolute favourites. I tasted it for the first time in the 2015 Advent Calendar and fell in love. I’ve since bought a tin of 100 g, and then a 250 g tin. The tea has a light flavour and needs to be steeped for a long time (I’ve found the longer the better, even 20+ min). It really does remind me of banana bread though and I think that is why I love it so much.
Flavors: banana, Cinnamon, Dates
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.
