I used the entire sample of this to make both a latte and a plain cup of tea. The lapsang smelled so strongly of smoke but I had some giant pieces of banana so I am hoping the flavors balance.

I of course topped the latte with whipped cream which immediately latched on to the banana flavor. So I instantly got creamy banana medicine. As I drink the tea, the smoke really takes over, pushing the banana to the aftertaste. Flavorwise I am getting the grill but the spiced smoke smell is so pungent that I find I have to prepare myself to take each sip. I like it but at the same time I don’t.

Drinking the plain tea, I think the latte brought out some of the flavors more. I feel like the smoke is less pungent but there is also less banana in the plain tea.

I think overall this tea is quite good but I think it is so distinctly flavored that it is a one and done sort of thing otherwise it would be easy to grow tired of the flavor.

Drinking this with milk today. Has a strong candy banana smell, still there in the sip but not as strong. Not getting as much smokiness as I would like but perhaps the milk is affecting that?

I had this one the other day – still enjoying this but i really wish there was more banana flavour. the lapsang makes for an interesting combination but more banana would be delicious :)


lol you always want more banana

I fell in love with this tea towards the end of the bag. I’d crave it and search it out in my cupboard. It was released last January and I’m hoping it is a seasonal thing that will come around again… next month. Fingers crossed!


I should probably try this.
