Tea of the morning here.
They opened up a Spicely store on Market Street where I catch the bus and they have quite a large tea collection. Oddly I don’t see any teas when I go to the Spicely website. Maybe we’re a test market?
Anyway this wasn’t cheap, I paid $11.99 for 2 oz. of tea and even complained to the checkout girl that this is a lot more than I am used to paying for tea (I almost bought some other flavors too!). The tea is organic which is a bonus and non-GMO. Is any tea made with GMO’s? I haven’t a clue.
So I steeped it up this morning and was slightly disappointed. The black tea base is a little bit thin and so is the banana flavor. I got more vanilla and coconut. this was better with a touch of rock sugar. They recommend a steeping time of 2-3 minutes but I might let it go for 4 minutes next time. It certainly smells divine in the tin but I was hoping for more banana ‘cause I love banana flavored things. I’m hoping that messing around with the steeping parameters will make this better.
IMO 52 Teas always makes good banana teas. Maybe Frank will do a version of this someday? ;)
