25 Tasting Notes
This is definitely my favorite bagged peppermint tea. This amber-colored tea is perfect for an upset stomach, and tastes sweet (but not too sweet), but still has quite a nice minty depth to it! I always like to think my breath has a minty freshness to it after. I enjoy it both hot and cold.
I had fairly decent hopes for this tea. Expecting something more along the lines of a “banana nut bread” flavor (as the title says), it seemed to turn out to be a sweet “banana tea” instead. I hardly tasted any of the nuts or dried fruits as I had hoped.
[EDIT] Rating has been bumped up. As suggested in the comments, I steeped the tea longer (7 mins at least), and found the extra time allowed the nuts and dried fruits to intermingle with the banana flavor resulting in a more enjoyable tea.
I was initially given a sample of this tea, and immediately bought it after tasting it! I hate fruit teas, but love black tea! This one has that lovely depth of black tea, the refreshing hint from the peach, and a slight zing at the end from the ginger. When I pull an all-nighter, I turn to this tea rather than anything else (soda included) to keep me up, it seems to work the best!
The flavor of this tea seems very mild. It seems to be missing that distinct “this is definitely orange pekoe” flavor and depth (particularly in the after-taste). However, I grew up drinking this tea from tea bags, so I could be wrong. But, if you’re looking for a mellow, organic version of orange pekoe, this might be for you!
I love this tea as a dessert tea. As everyone thus far has said, it is a very smooth almost “buttery” tea (the longer you steep it, the more apparent that flavor is). I find it to be a heavier tea, so I enjoy it in a smaller cup to finish off a meal :) Definitely a favorite, I will buy it again.
