This is a 52teas genmaicha, so of course it’s good! There were very few banana pieces in my whole bag, but I made sure to include some in my mug. Unfortunately, I taste nothing except regular genmaicha. What might work is to remove the genmaicha after the proper steep time, but then keep the banana pieces in for 20+ minutes. I like to give my herbal banana teas an extra long steep. Well anyway it’s a pleasant, toasty tea, but not banana at all.

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
