Thanks Sil for unknowingly convincing me to buy this one. It’s really fucking good – and not even “good for a green tea” good, just straight up delicious!
It’s really, really banana heavy but that’s not a bad thing. I fucking ADORE banana teas and I’ve always had a soft spot for 52Tea’s banana teas whether that be under Frank’s ownership or Anne’s. I initially ignored this one ‘cause green tea base – but it actually works very well because it just adds that grassy sharpness that you get with slightly underripe bananas anyway. So that’s basically what this tastes like: sweet, delectable bananas that are maybe just a pinch away from being perfectly ripe. It’s really, really silky smooth too!
Also – eating the banana bits out of the steeped up leaf? Hell to the yes! 100% recommend doing that – it was a fucking delicious treat.
