drank Monkey Fart by Southern Boy Teas
871 tasting notes

I received this with the SBT sampler from the Zoomdweebies kick starter. I would not have bought this otherwise. So I am stepping into uncharted territory here, I’m ok to try something new but not sure how it is going to go.

Backstory: I don’t like bananas. I will each the greenest banana you can find me, but it is remotely even close to yellow, I don’t want it. I can’t even tell you the last time I had a banana. So it goes without saying, I also do not like banana flavoured things.

Ok back to the real time story: I made this as per usual. Tea bag in about 2 cups boiling water for 3 minutes, added white sugar (maybe 2tsp?), filled the pitcher to the top and let sit in the fridge over night. The dry tea bag smells strongly of banana flavouring. But it also kind of reminded me of the pear SBT. Iced this tea is a dead ringer for banana runts. (I am really going off memory here becuase the last time I had a runt was eons ago, and I couldn’t even tell you when the last time I had a banana runt was because I would pick them out – but anyway, the first thing my brain said to me after drinking this was banana runts).

Its actually not horrible. Tastes strongly of banana, slightly artificial but in a way that banana flavoured things taste. It is sweet but not too sweet. I am glad I did not add any more sweetener to it. I will definitely be able to drink the pitcher of this but I would not repurchase. Not that it is a bad tea, but it is just bananas! (hehe)

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
