This matcha was calling to me. The banana flavor really lends itself well to a creamy matcha treat. Yum! Thank you Sil!

We’re not monkeying around with this blend! Our Banana & Cream flavor matcha green tea powder blend is spectacular! You won’t find many banana flavored teas, and we are the first to offer a banana flavored matcha blend. This Banana & Cream Matcha tastes like you just made an old fashioned ice cream shake in an old style blender. You may begin to day dream and think you are sitting at a vintage soda fountain shop! Go ahead, let yourself be whisked away on the dreamy matcha cloud of Banana & Cream! Everyone will love this Matcha blend, both young and old, or at least young at heart.
When we created this blend we wanted to appeal to the young at heart but even more so we wanted to have something so creamy, so sweet and so very yummy that everyone would enjoy making new creations with it. This is surely the flavor to get creative with, make a Banana & Cream matcha shake, use it in cookies, muffins, or scones. Prepare a hot or cold matcha latte and don’t forget to add the whipped cream on top! Drizzle with chocolate syrup, add strawberries, or enjoy it as is, because it is so good just adding water, or milk. Go ahead, go crazy, go bananas, Bananas & Cream Matcha that is!

Soooo lazy tealog for me since i’m in swap package mode. This one is off “somewhere” for some “one(s)” to have and try. haha. This one smells like banana medicine upon opening, but as a latte it wasn’t half bad…it cut through the medicinal factor and was more just a banana creamy drink.
I still think about pineapple matcha…. sigh
I got super pumped for a mug of this last night for dessert and then as I was microwaving the almond milk (I’m a classy broad) I remembered I was holding off on matcha until my whisk arrives. Oops.
Another great flavoured matcha! Smells and tastes like banana candy. No added sweetness needed thanks to the flavour, bed it’s just a real treat. Perfect for a dessert latte. I’m only two matchas in and it’s already reinforcing that I’m gonna have to make a Red Leaf order in the future.
Thanks so much for these samples VariaTEA — they’re knocking it out of my park.
Oh Courtney, oh Courtney, what a monster you have created. If I didn’t still have other matcha to try, I’d be on red leaf’s site right now placing an order for this.
I used this matcha as an opportunity to test out the magic bullet (you know, of the food processing variety, just to be clear) Mr. keychange got me for Christmas. What a handy and powerful little machine it is! Anyway, I used about 8 oz of milk, one matcha scoop of matcha, and set to work. When all was done, I had that familiar hesitation: what if I didn’t like it? what if it tasted like grass and everyone loved matcha except me and my underdeveloped palate? I turned to Mr. Keychange, resolver of many things.
“Here,” I encouraged, thrusting the glass towards him, “why don’t you take the first sip?”
“No way! First of all it smells like that nasty banana medicine from when we were kids, and secondly, this is your deal, not mine.”
“Please? Just let me know if it tastes weird.” I begged.
But he wouldn’t budge. So, and not without a wee bit of trepidation, I took my first sip.
Creamy banana milk. No grass to be found anywhere. No vegetation. No vegetables or foliage or underbrush. Just wonderful banana milk. Courtney is off soaking up the son at the moment, but I do wish I knew what the flavouring level of the matcha is, because hooooly shit it’s amazing.
Thanks Sil and VariaTEA! This was an awesome (early) birthday present! Seriously; I opened the birthday package I got today from VariaTEA and this was all I could smell – even through the tin foil! Mmm! Bananas!
It’s, of course, the first one I tried out and the first tea I made for myself today – whisked into cold milk. It tastes exactly like it smells – and that’s banana medicine (the best kind of medicine; I feel for my brother who never got to have it because he’s highly allergic to penicillin) or those marshmallow-y banana candies.
I may have gotten a bit too excited though, heh…
I chugged the whole 12 oz. of it in about two minute and the felt immediately full and bloated. Too much yummy banana! I’ll try to be more patient with future cups.
(Banana Cheesecake, anyone? YES!)
In continuation with the cold matcha sitting in the fridge for hours method, this was the next logical option. And it is delightful. The banana goodness is there, and the milk just makes everything creamier. Yum!
A short story. J absolutely despises banana medicine. He despises it as much as I love it. Extreme amounts.
J: “What’s the tin foil on the counter?”
C: “Tea, from Sil, why don’t you open it?” (hehehe, I know the scent repulses him)
J: (I can hear tin foil being opened) “AGH. Banana medicine! Why would you do that?!”
As the scent fills the kitchen, I breathe it in and smile.
Also, I may have placed a Red Leaf order, and of course I added this one in.
