Pie in the sky

When it comes to dreaming up new teas, sometimes inspiration just randomly strikes. It usually happens in the middle of a really great dessert. So you can probably imagine how this decadent flavour came to be. We’ll give you a hint: it involved a chocolate banana cream pie. We tried out dozens of blends before we found the perfect one – a rich, chocolatey black tea blend with pieces of ripe banana and creamy white chocolate. It tastes like a dream come true.

Ingredients: Black tea, cocoa nibs, banana pieces, white chocolate, cocoa powder.

Price: $7.00 per 50g

I WANT to love this one. I really do. But it’s just not doing it for me. The Banana Nut Bread was to die for and this is just lackluster. It smells great but doesn’t have a ton of flavor. The first cup I brewed for 6 minutes and was bitter. The second cup I brewed for 5 minutes and didn’t have much flavor. I tried it sweetened and with as well as without milk. Sadly, won’t be repurchasing.

3 finals down, one more to go! To fuel my brain, I decided to steep the sample of this tea I got from my last order.
I added a bit of sugar and half and half to the brew and I don’t know… the flavors in this tea don’t really impress me at all. The banana and chocolate flavors are underwhelming, and honestly the idea of “drinking” banana kind of puts me off. I steeped this tea for awhile and still am getting a pretty watered down flavor. And while taking a sip of the tea, I notice an oily feeling on my lips. Sure enough, there’s a layer of it floating on top of my steeped tea. No coconut listed in the ingredients though, so I’m not even sure why there would be an oiliness to begin with.
Anyway, the idea was good but execution is not so much. In fact I may just throw the rest of the brewed tea out and pick a different flavor.

Had Banana Dream Pie today at my local DT. I’m no tea expert (yet!) but I can tell this is a really tasty tea. I added a little bit of agave nectar and milk (the boyfriend has not acquired the tea taste yet, so I always need to have it milkier, and sweeter) and it did taste like it says it does: banana cream pie! My only complaint is that once the tea starts cooling down, it’s downhill from there. It’s a tea that really needs to be drank hot!

Adding this to my shopping list to alternate with DT’s Birthday Cake as my evening dessert tea :3

This is by far my favourite new winter tea! If you enjoy red velvet cake and other rich dessert teas then you will absolutely enjoy this. I would recommend that you do not leave it to steep too long though because it will end up tasting bitter like most dessert teas. :

Saved my one and only sample of this for my birthday today. This reminds me of something else I’ve tried. But this is really good. I taste the banana, and a nice chocolatey background, I like this as a black tea. The more recent banana/chocolate teas have been rooibos, or mate, and I’m not a big fan of those types. So I really think they should bring this one back. It’s really yummy!

Sample from whatshesaid. Thank you!

While I can definitely smell the banana and chocolate here, I can’t really taste it. This tastes like slightly sweet black tea and cardboard, with a bit of sourness to it. That makes it sound worse than it is, it doesn’t taste too bad, but I’ll be passing along the rest of it rather than drinking more.

Usually I apply the term “poetic” to reviews that are highly complimentary of the tea, but sour tea and cardboard is a wonderful bit of negative wordsmithing, too :)

I’m glad you enjoyed my description :) The variety of flavors that can be found in tea really fascinates me. I try to describe them to the best of my ability.

I found I liked this more the more I tried it… but it’s not a sickeningly sweet dessert tea which is why I had trouble adjusting at first because that’s what I expected

Banana Dream Pie is very dreamy yes…… however you won’t be sleeping much after drinking it since it is a black tea! There’s chocolate in it, so that’s always a plus. The banana flavor is not prominent at all, it’s ever so slight. This tea kind of reminds me of hot cocoa! The smell will draw you into its wonderfulness!

Egh. Got this as a latte once, and um..

Its not bad, but its not that…good…either. Like, not outstandingly good. It tastes so artificial to me, like tea flavoured like banana instead of tea with actual banana in it. Given a choice, I’d definitely take Copabanana over this, but if I were stranded on a deserted island and this was the only banana tea there, I’d settle.
