drank Smoked Maple Banana by Butiki Teas
1639 tasting notes

I think I’m really liking this tea… which is really good because like a fool I mistakenly bought two ounces of this when I meant to buy one and only one ounce of Dusted Nutmeg, which I meant to buy two of. But enough of how I can’t even get my tea order straight…

I took a few sips before adding sugar and I could taste a really nice smoky flavor, but not much else. Once I added sugar, the banana and maple popped out. First thing I taste is smoky banana, then the smoke gives way to banana, then that gives way to maple with a little smoke lingering in the aftertaste. I love smoked things and I love banana flavoring, but I never thought to put the two together! Now I’m contemplating starting my smoker and trying to smoke slices of maple glazed bananas. This tea is really comforting and is helping me let go of the casting mistake I made in class today. Maybe my subconscious knew better when I was placing this order because I suspect this is going to be a tea that is hard to let go of!

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
