Myself, at the beginning of the winter tea season, sipping some Snow Bunny:

I can see this tea becoming a tradition that will lead to heartache when the winter collection ends. I can see it as my companion whilst wrapping Christmas gifts and after frolicking in the snow.

Well, the honeymoon is over, it has disappointed me time and time again, and now I’m kicking it to the curb. Finished my 25g bag of Snow Bunny today in a “clean out the tea cupboard” swing. By finished, I mean brewed, got disgusted with the smell, sipped, was disgusted by the taste, threw down the drain, rinsed, did not repeat.

I don’t know what happened with this one. Each time I had it, the banana flavour seemed more fake, the walnuts more overpoweringly bitter, the black tea so bland it faded into none-existence. WHY did I ever think this was good? Goodbye, high rating!

Uniquity

I’ve been drinking teas like that at work for a while in an attempt to finish some sub-par teas. Unfortunately, drinking yucky tea isn’t fun and I’ve taken to drinking no tea instead!

What’s that saying… “Life’s is too short for bad tea” ? I think that applies to about a quarter of my cupboard, and it taints my tea experience!

My first of the winter collection!
I ran to David’s at lunch and ninjaed the only box. So.. yeah.. I still feel like they hate me. Oh well! :D

This tea is a little light on flavour, but very comforting. It’s a good black base, which makes me think it will hold up extremely well to being latte-ified, which is what I will try next.

The dry smell is very WALNUT! Punch in the face. Walnuts in your- yeah.. strong. I know banana is in there, but it’s hard to smell.

As it steeps, the scent is quite light, and first sip reminded me a bit of Toasted Walnut, but then it sinks into a banana-nut bread… yum. It’s very comforting, but the flavour is not terribly “deep” or inspiring. That said, if you can’t get your hands on 52teas Buttered Banana Bread, this may tide you over until the next reblend n_-

Latte time!

Oh I’m so glad you got that box so I can read your reviews! I’m actually more tempted by this now that you mention that you find the nut part more prominent. I have some banana flavored teas where the banana is just about the only thing I can taste.

DaisyChubb

The nut definitely is at the forefront with this tea! Just a hint of banana, and it’s not the fake banana taste either, so this tea might be perfect for you :D

Great Canadian Travelling Tea Box

I’m really enjoying this one. I’m pretty excited about all the banana-based teas in the box since I freaking love banana flavored things. This didn’t taste much like anything unsweetened, but when I sweetened it, it almost has a syrupy mouthfeel (in a pleasant way). It’s like they took Davidstea Banana Nut Bread and added a more substantial base (in this case, the black tea). Tempting to retain the rest of this one.

This does taste quite a bit like walnut banana bread.
I don’t mind this tea, but I am still not the biggest fan of banana in tea. I don’t know why because I really like bananas. I guess maybe it always tastes a little fake to me.
Anyway, back to the tea….it has a slight bitter walnut taste.
Don’t oversteep this or it will be very bitter.
An interesting addition to the winter collection, won’t be too sad when it is gone.

Kittenna

I agree, it’s a dry sort of nut flavour with the banana, making it banana-bread-like. I liked the banana though :)

Day 71 of my 101 days of DAVIDsTEA challenge. (I’ve got a backlog of about ten days to put my logs in for, I’ll probably get to those tomorrow.)

I was cosplaying Honey-senpai from Ouran High School Host Club for a lecture today (yes, I was doing a lecture in costume. Yes, the costume was relevant. I feel like such a happy dork right now). I hadn’t tried this one yet, and it seemed appropriate, seeing as Honey and bunnies seem to go hand in hand. (I also had a slice of delicious cake. Tee hee!)

This tea has a nice blend of fruity-sweet to it. I’m on my third steep right now and it’s still coming through. The flavour is a little more subtle than I’d like it to be — I will try steeping it a bit longer the next time I have this flavour to see if that will make a difference. But it is a lovely tea, and I’m sad it’s only part of the seasonal collection. (That and Hot Toboggan. Mmmmmm.)

This was one of the Teas of the Day in the store and when I tried it.. well, let’s just say I wasn’t at all planning on getting this before I walked in the store.

Not sure I made it just like they did in store (not steeped as long probably) so I will try steeping it longer next time to make it more flavourful (I dare say, sweet). Usually not a big flavoured tea guy, but I’m starting to think that’s what David’s does best, or at least it’s definitely what they’re known for, eh?

I definitely picked up the walnuts AND bananas in the aroma. I think the tea gives a great base and overall I get a slightly nutty, caramelly flavour, really pleasant but not sickeningly sweet. Very nice!

Not rating this quite yet, because I think I did something wrong, I must have. I can taste the banana bread, and it’s quite promising, but then it is overwhelmingly bitter. So bitter it erases the taste of everything else. So I’m going to try a shorter steep with a lower temperature. If I get to the end of this 26 g sample without having a good cup, I will cry.

I haven’t had a banana tea yet that I like…

Amariel

Is it bitter from the walnut maybe?

Cattibrie

I had the same experience today when I made this. It tasted fine at the start but the bitterness really took over. Let me know if you can figure out a better steeping time.

I’m so glad I decided to get some of this tea this sunday. It was suggested by an employe of DT because there was no CopaBanana anymore (but there is still some since tonight… so all of you copabanana fan, go order some before it’s sold out for real!!! ).

The flavor is kind of mild but just enough for my taste, I can taste the banana at the end of the sip and a little bit of the walnuts ( not that much … I thought it would taste more nutty.. maybe there was not enough walnut piece in my 1.5 spoon of tea?..)

I had a crazy morning at the clinic this morning and was running all over the place so I forgot my tea and steeped it for more than 30 minutes and it was still really good, the black tea was not that bitter and the banana flavor was more powerful).

I just bought 30g of this so I’ll probably order some more soon.

1 tsp for 250mL water @ 100C. Steeped 4 minutes.

(I got the Winter Collection sampler pack for a Christmas gift and am sampling all of it today at work. I enjoyed a pot of Apres Ski, then a cup of Hot Toboggan, which was great this time as I knew to expect apple cider and not green tea. Am now on the Snow Bunny. Alpine Punch, already sampled, is home, waiting for me to toss it out.)

A good body to the tea, which complements the slight nuttiness. I don’t get much banana flavour, just a slight aroma. I love walnuts, so I enjoy the almost-bitter walnut aftertaste. I’d think this one could get bitter fast if steeped beyond 4 minutes. I like it, but I doubt I’ll buy it on my own.
