A little sample pack of this on my counter has been mercilessly taunting me all weekend. I am not very partial to anything banana related, except for maybe banana bread (and I have to be in a very specific mood for that) I’m not even sure WHY I’m going to even try this instead of just saving it for a swap… maybe I’m hoping this tea will prove me and my taste buds wrong. Hmmph. Let’s see.
Out of the pouch, WOW. So much potent banana smell, mixed with some other intangible tropical aromas. I’m feeling veeeeeeery hesitant about this….
First sip- um, bleeeegh. Again, overwhelmingly, straight up banana. It literally tastes like I just ate the actual fruit. There are some other milder notes of other tropical flavors in here, but they all take the backseat. If a day ever arrives where I suddenly want to drink banana in liquid form, I’ll know which tea to turn to. In the meantime, this one is definitely NOT for me.
