First and foremost – Thanks MuppetLove

Many of you know I HATE BANANAS! BUT…I really wanted to put myself to the test and I thought this was the perfect way! I’m facing one of my food fears! LOL – The last two (plus) weeks have been overly trying for me and I really AM trying to keep a smile on my face! I figured by making fun of myself during this flavor experience might be a good way to start.

I have to admit – because of my hatred of ‘nanners’ – I found the Banana Aroma foul. Now…don’t get me wrong…it DOES smell like Bananas – and for those who LIKE Bananas – you probably LOVE this aroma. Because one of the MANY things I can’t stand about Bananas is the aroma…that is WHY I found this aroma foul!

I’m trying to put my personal ‘nana’ feelings aside. I see there is coconut in here, too! Perhaps that will be what I will try and focus on as I plug my nose and sip.

First sip.

Really not that bad!

Not overly Banana…YET.

I can taste the coconut, so that is a PLUS.

The black tea base is somewhat muted…but that’s ok.

The more I sip the more I am THANKING the coconut! I really wouldn’t change the flavor of this! The coconut makes the Banana do-able (for me).

I have noticed with Banana Flavored teas – the banana seems to pop out more as it cools so I am (almost) trying to chug this so that doesn’t happen!

At first I wasn’t going to rate this – because I am not the person to ask to judge Banana Flavored things, but, this wasn’t bad! Actually, it was pretty good…just keep in mind if you are a Banana Fan you might find it even more palatable!

Memily

I need this!

TeaEqualsBliss

Mem – “follow me” – Thanks for commenting! I have enjoyed your tasting notes thus far :)

Lynxiebrat

I’m kind of back and forth about bananas myself. Sometimes I’ll crave them and eat a whole bunch, othertimes no amount of convincing will get me to eat one, or something that has banana in it. I do have a strong dislike for fake banana flavor though. I find it revolting. though other fake flavors such as strawberry don’t bother me. heh.

Azzrian

Banana in tea is a very difficult one for me as well. Though I believe I have found a couple that I like I have yet to LOVE a banana tea!

DaisyChubb

I’m with you Lynxie! It’s a love hate relationship (probably depending on the levels of potassium lol)

Tea Sipper

uh oh! I didn’t know you didn’t like banana! I’m the same way with tomatoes and there is no way I’d be eating any of those. I’m glad you didn’t find it too terrible though! :D

Lynxiebrat

I know I should eat more bananas, I beginning to get arthritis in my hands. I am not sure I could stomach Banana in tea even when I’m craving bananas……Banana nut bread however….Yum.

TeaEqualsBliss

LOL – No worries MuppetLove!! I enjoyed expanding my horizons on this one :)

Tea #14 from the ’Here’s Hoping’ teabox.

Oh. Holy. Yum. This is delicious.

I normally stay away from banana flavored teas because I think that too often that they end up tasting like banana flavored Laughy Taffy. Thanks, but no thanks. This tea, however, isn’t a banana tea as much as it’s a tropical tea with banana as one of the flavors. The coconut keeps the banana in check, and the two blend with the black tea very well. There is a bit of an artificial flavor that comes out more as the tea cools, but if I ever have another cup of this I doubt it sits around long enough to cool.

Element Tea, please, please, please carry this again!

Alphakitty

Sadly, Element Tea closed their doors about half a year ago :( They had some really great blends too!

Veronica

I went to their page, and it says they’ve reopened, but they still have their holiday promotions up (and one from October) which makes me nervous.

Every tea I have tried from there has been really good. Wish I had tried their teas earlier!

Mercuryhime

Just took a peek at the website. They really do seem to be back! With tarty sounding new blends! Though that holiday promo is worrisome…

Veronica

I guess it’s a good sign that they have new blends. Maybe I’ll send them an email just to get more information.

Tea Sipper

I had no idea they were back open! They should have sent an e-mail to everyone that ordered from them before.

Another tea from the traveling tea box! This one has actually been on my shopping list for awhile, so I was really excited to see it in the box. The dry leaves don’t really smell like banana to me, instead I smella tangy tropical fruit aroma. The tea liquor itself smells more like the tea’s description – warm coconut with a hint of banana. The flavor is sweet and malty with a fresh banana finish. The banana isn’t too strong, but it’s definitely noticeable and it’s not really artificial-fakey tasting like a lot of banana flavored things are. There is a soft fruity coconut aftertaste that finishes out the sip nicely. Adding milk and sweetener brings out more of the coconut flavors and an overall tropical fruitiness. The more I sip this, the more that I am liking it. I checked the website and it seems that this one is no longer available. Please bring this one back, Element Teas!

-Dry blend has medium black tea leaves with slivers of coconut and banana and small yellow petals.
-Dry leaves smell lightly of tropical fruit. Tea liquor aroma is of warm coconut with a hint of banana.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium orange brown color.
-Sweet malty flavor with a fresh banana finish. Soft fruity coconut aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. Fresh banana and coconut flavors. Not artificial tasting.

I didn’t think I liked banana flavored tea until I tried this one. It’s so good! 52 Teas Banana Pudding has become my new favorite since Element Teas no longer carries this one.

Josie Jade

Oh I’ll have to track down some of the Banana Pudding! Thanks for the tip! :)

I like this one! The flavors are great together. I thought the black tea base was sweet tasting and a perfect match for the banana and coconut. I’m guessing there is a bit of an artificial banana flavor, but it isn’t bad at all. And it does seem kind of tropical! The blue cornflowers add a nice touch. Another great tea from the Element tea closing sale purchase I made.

The flavor profile was a little strong on this one. It primarily tastes like banana with a coconut backdrop. The tea base was a bit heavy. Something was a little off here for me, but I think this is a good one for experimentation with a splash of coconut milk or infusing in a couple ounces of coconut water.
