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_-
