2741 tasting notes

A sipdown this morning of a tea from last year’s 12 Teas of Christmas. I still have a few pouches half full and at least three unopened. I intend to finish them up before my next advent tea calendar arrives.

I can taste bananas, walnuts, granola (nuts, oats, coconut), and a fruity, smooth black base that has some acidity to it. This could overbrew easily, but I found ~4 minutes was fine. I did 8 minutes in hottish (70 deg C) water because I had no kettle or microwave and had to make-due with tap water. I could see this making an amazing latte and it would take sweetener well. I think it is great on its own as well. There is a hint of cocoa in the base tea that would be covered up by adding milk to it.

Flavors: banana, Cocoa, Coconut, Fruity, Nutty, Oats, Smooth, Tannin, Walnut

Preparation
155 °F / 68 °C 8 min or more 2 tsp 19 OZ / 550 ML

Hmm, I don’t recall this one being in the 12 Teas, but if I am not mistaken, Banana Pudding was.

52Teas

Yes, I found myself wondering if Banana Pancakes was in the Christmas box and I think it was the Banana pudding – which will also match with the coconut notes that you’re also experiencing.

52Teas

Oh – Banana pancakes was a tea of the week from 2017.

It was definitely Banana Pudding. I wasn’t paying attention to the pouch. Thanks for letting me know.

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
