Thank you very much for sharing, AJRimmer! I’m always looking for a great banana tea. This is and might be in the running for the favorite from PudTea from many Steepsterers. The banana is THERE in the flavor and not a fake candy type of banana. Very good. Also hints of vanilla and something that could even translate to pie crust or graham cracker. The black tea is light, but if the flavor is accurate, I don’t mind so much. I was a bit worried that the apple would translate to the cup, but this doesn’t taste like apple at all. I didn’t really taste raisins or dates, but they might have the banana flavoring too. It’s surprising magic that these ingredients can even taste like this. The second steep is even better – liquefied banana and even more of the graham cracker. It tastes just like a smoothie I make with graham crackers. Even more amazing is the no stevia! Look at what is possible, tea companies!
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for full mug // 21 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
