From DAVIDsTEA

Pie in the sky

When it comes to dreaming up new teas, sometimes inspiration just randomly strikes. It usually happens in the middle of a really great dessert. So you can probably imagine how this decadent flavour came to be. We’ll give you a hint: it involved a chocolate banana cream pie. We tried out dozens of blends before we found the perfect one – a rich, chocolatey black tea blend with pieces of ripe banana and creamy white chocolate. It tastes like a dream come true.

Ingredients: Black tea, cocoa nibs, banana pieces, white chocolate, cocoa powder.

Skysamurai

Stephanie

It is discontinued, but I could send you a sample if you like :)

Skysamurai

I may just have to take you up on that. Let me know what you see in my cupboard that you like

This one smells unmistakeably like chocolate banana. Yum! And the flavour is pretty much what I’d expect an unsweetened chocolate banana tea to taste like. It makes me wonder what this would be like sweetened… or as a latte! I’m willing to bet it would be fabulous! The black tea base is pretty good here, only a touch of astringency at the recommended 5 minutes, and it really grounds the flavourings.

Again, another tea that’s unlikely to be a staple in my collection, but it’s enjoyable nonetheless. I really need to use the rest of my sample as a sweetened latte….

ETA: Second infusion reminds me of chocolate banana rooibos’ I’ve tried… and not in a great way. It’s not bad, but it’s certainly nothing like the first infusion.

After curiously looking up myfitnesspal (mentioned on Shmiracles’ post) and logging all of my meals, I quickly jumped to the conclusion that I don’t get enough protein in a day. what, how is that possible?!

While doing some late night emergency shopping with my roommate (her toothbrush died) I impulsively picked up some expensive soy protein powder. Maybe that wasn’t the smartest thing to buy on the fly; there were many brands and types of protein powder and surely there are better ways to incorporate protein into one’s diet.. Oh, well. I thought I could make some cool smoothies..

Or throw it into some tea. This tea. Why did I chose this tea? It tastes beyond funky. I think the powder might go better with the cup of sparrows tongue I have beside me or, perhaps, a fruit tea. I don’t know. A great experimental journey awaits me. Tomorrow.

Aaargh! I’m still waiting for my sparrows tongue order from Butiki! I swear the mailman rang the doorbell this morning, but I couldn’t get to it, and there was NO package OR pick-up card. :| It better be here sooooon.

I am sooo happy I splurged on a bunch of David’s Tea while in New York!!! I feel like the last time I placed an order I missed the ones that I would really love and got some that didn’t quite work for me. So this time, after making the vendor kindly make me sniff at every single tea and spending over $100 later… I have a collection of deliciousness to enjoy!!! Thanks David’s Tea!!! I am thrilled! Now if only I could get them to ship to Ecuador, I would be the happiest girl ever!

This tea was available to taste the day I went to purchase my teas. Of course, one taste was enough to get me hooked on it! The dry leaf looked delicious with the banana pieces and strong black tea scent… Oh dear… Must have 4 ounces (and a free tin…). And so 4 ounces were added to my long list of teas that I would be purchasing that day.

Now, at home, I brewed 2 teaspoons to 500ml of water in my fabulous new Breville. This is one of those teas that will make an entire room smell delicious. Everyone in the kitchen asked if banana bread was in the oven. Smiling, I said, “Nope! It is my delicous banana pie tea that I bought from David’s Tea!”. So of course, everyone, including my tea clinical brother, tried it. For the first time ever, everyone liked it! They all agreed that it tasted exactly like banana bread!!!

I love it. You can clearly taste the black tea base, which is pleasantly astringent without being bitter. The banana flavor is incredibly natural tasting. It tasted, in all honesty, like fresh baked home made banana bread! The texture was creamy and rich, almost as if milk had been added. I didn’t taste chocolate, but really, it was perfect without out it.

This is really, a tea worth travelling to another continent to get. Trust me, if you like tea and banana bread or muffins, you will love this tea!!!

Why can’t they ship to Ecuador? Have you talked to Customer Service? I’ve gathered that they’re willing to ship places that their website doesn’t allow, you just have to go through CS.

Ninavampi

Ooooh… I just found that new bit of text they added on their web page. I will email them and see how much it will cost. Thanks!

Nik

This sounds soooo good! I haven’t yet bought anything from DT. I almost bought their winter sampler the other day, which I think includes this tea, but then I didn’t. I don’t have a tea budget right now, but I see that some of these are limited-time flavours and I know I’m going to regret it if I don’t get some. Eep!

Just had a cup of this while waiting for dinner to cook. Yes, dessert before dinner. I needed something yummy because I’m having a busy day and I have to stay up and write tonight. So. It’s just as delicious as usual, I was seriously debating adding 50g of this to the order I am hoping to make this week, but took it off because I’m planning to swap for some other black teas and don’t want too much.

Haha, too much tea!

Wish it wasn’t black tea based. Still trying to find a banana tea with a green or white base. Difficult!

jessiwrites

Ooooh, I bet a banana green would be lovely! I don’t drink a LOT of black tea, but when I’m in the mood for it, this is such a nice selection. I mostly drink green.

jessiwrites

Also, I noticed DavidsTea has a banana oolong. It is being discontinued, but it is currently in stock. It might be good!

Ahhhh get some! (then share with me!) :D

I felt so groggy this morning. I don’t think I really woke up until the middle of my workout; Which likely means I was doing completely ineffective zombie movements during the first half of my exercises like I belonged in Michael Jackson’s Thriller music video. Greaaat! It’s better than nothing I suppose, but it’s certainly not the butt-kicking cardio I intended.

As for this tea, the smell and taste of bananas are plainly recognizable. I’m not sure about the dream or cream part of the description though, but I’m drinking it plain. Perhaps the creaminess might ring a little more true with the addition of milk and/or sugar? I enjoy bananas occasionally, but I have to be in the mood for it, and I’m thinking the same might go for this tea. It’s quite good especially in the way that it captures the taste of bananas, but it’s not a “gotta have it now” kind of tea for me.

Additional notes: Having this one again so soon! I really love it. Crow Kettle sent me enough for a few more cups!! I love the cocoa powder in it. It really is a nice deep black tea, deep chocolate flavor, without actually getting astringent. I really love the variety of my tea collection. If I’m craving chocolate, I’ve got chocolate teas, craving banana, I’ve got banana teas. This one just happens to have both.

might need to try this, I love banana

I’ve been wanting to try this tea since forever, so a big thanks to whatshesaid for sending it to me, and in a festively decorated envelope no less! The dry leaves are covered in a fine, powdery cocoa and smell like rich chocolate. The banana is noticeable in the tea’s aroma. The flavor is of heavy milk chocolate with a sweet banana finish. The tea really fills your mouth, and it is a robust flavored blend. The chocolate flavor is definitely more noticeable, with just a little banana mixed in. I added a little sweetener and just the smallest amount of milk to made it nice and creamy. This tea makes me want to crawl back into bed with a big book instead of going to class!

-Dry blend has small black tea leaves, cocoa nibs and pieces of dried banana all covered in a fine cocoa powder.
-Dry leaves smell like rich chocolate. Tea liquor aroma is of chocolate and bananas.
-Tea liquor is a cloudy medium orange brown color with an oily sheen on top.
-Heavy milk chocolate and black tea flavor with a sweet banana finish.
-Best with sweetener and the smallest amount of milk.
-Very good tea. Mainly chocolate flavor with just a hint of banana.

glad you like it :)
I sure hope they bring it back in the fall/winter!

Josie Jade

I hope so too!

Cavocorax

I’d better try it with a touch of milk. Sounds delightful!

Josie Jade

I think it made it much creamier with just a little milk, Cavocorax. But then I like most of my black teas with milk! :)

Having this for the second time, I think I realize why so many are not a fan. It is a pleasant enough cup but nothing truly amazing. There is hints of both chocolate and cocoa but I also got a bit of astringency that was really not working in this cup. Also, like so many other DAVIDs teas, it was on the oily side which really detracted from the flavor. I think this might be good as a latte so I will have to try that next time. I don’t think I will have trouble finishing what I have but I also doubt I will be too heartbroken once it is gone. Thank you Aimee Popovacki for the sample.

I am laughing my butt off right now and I must tell you this story! You know I bought my first Timolino travel mug last Thursday, the purple one. I brought it home and washed it that night and left it on the drying rack. In the morning, I had this terrible thought about losing one of the pieces….there are SO many little pieces! I went to work without it, and when I came home, my husband had put it in the cupboard, but the lid was missing! I knew it! So, trying not to blame my husband for losing it, we searched everywhere. I thought, maybe it fell into a bowl or mug and he put it away without noticing. Then I thought, maybe one of our kitties got up on the counter in the night and played with it. We looked everywhere….even the litter box….and we found nothing. I was really upset because I never lose anything, and I hadn’t even gotten to use it yet! We tried looking a few other times but couldn’t find it until today…..I did a thorough search under our couches, and there it was in the last place I looked! It WAS the kitties! LOL!! Guess I better not leave small plastic discs lying around!

On to the tea…so, I applied my new rule of thumb to steep banana flavored teas for less time, and it worked! This one was a lot better. Still wish there was more of a chocolate note. Maybe white chocolate would be better? Thinking this might be good as a latte, although I have yet to make a latte…we’ll see.

Kittenna

Ahahaha, that’s great! Btw, you need the little rubber piece that goes with the lid in order for it to properly seal. Otherwise it leaks! Trust me…

Tealizzy

Like I said, too many little pieces! Thanks for the tip!

Alysha

Luckily they sell replacement lids now on their own, which is kinda reassuring.

Tealizzy

I know, but the replacement lids only come in grey and wouldn’t have the cute purple ring on top! ;)

KiwiDelight

I steeped this tea less than the minimum recommended amount of time (4 mins) for the second try and it still tasted funky. It bummed me out because I was really looking forward to finally having a taste. What’s your rule of thumb?

Tealizzy

I did just under 4 minutes, whereas I normally steep black teas for 5 minutes. I added sugar and some soy milk. I agree with you though…it’s okay, but I probably won’t buy more.

KiwiDelight

Bah! I don’t have soy milk. Now I have a “teas I wish I could like but can’t” list. And I love banana/chocolate teas.

Chizakura

That is so hilarious! xD Little mischevious kitties :D They pick such random things to play with. My cat will just find a random speck on the floor and start going nuts all over it.

Once when I was staying the night at a friend’s place, I didn’t have my glasses case so I just put my glasses on the table, and sure enough, her cats confiscated them during the night! Thankfully they weren’t too far away, but it sure was an interesting choice for a toy. xD

Tealizzy

Chizakura – haha! That’s too funny about the glasses! And those are important! One of my kitties also whisked away a bunched up paper towel the other day…still haven’t found it! (At least that wasn’t important!)
