Weird. I’m happy I got a sample of this from VariaTEA instead of buying it because I am not a fan. Nope, nope nooooooo.

I thought I would be too, but it’s just too … huh. I’m not even sure how to describe it. It’s like rotten banana – with that sort of liquorish odor, and it’s thick and woodsy and not chocolate. I’m just going to dump this. (155)

VariaTEA

And now to pass the sample on to someone else in hopes this will find a nice home. Either that or it will get passed along until it gets dumped cup by cup.

Cavocorax

Yes. If someone (Canadian) wants the last bit of it (2 cups?) they can have it! If no one claims it it will just… disappear!

OMGsrsly

That sounds terrible. Please disappear it! Please. (Well, unless someone is REALLY curious!)

Fjellrev

Gross, I think BPAL makes a perfume that smells like how you describe the taste of this: Banana Peel in a Graveyard. Personally, I wouldn’t want to know what that would taste like.

Fjellrev

And thanks for taking one for the team and trying it/going through that experience. Now you’ve spared me.

BPAL comes up with some interesting perfumes, that’s for sure.
Rotten banana tea sounds pretty awful.

TeaBrat

I was not a fan of this either

Cavocorax

Ok, I’m glad I’m not the only one who wasn’t a fan.

And yes, I think I’ll do everyone a favour and just disappear it. I wouldn’t want to inflict this on my worst enemy, nevermind one of you guys!!!

VariaTEA

If you go to the tea’s page, people rated it fairly highly. Perhaps it was just this sample that I inflicted on the both of us?

Cavocorax

That’s a possibility!

VariaTEA

In that case, I am very sorry to have subjected you to this nightmare.

Cavocorax

Hahah. Well it’s not like you made it bad! It could have just been another tea that I like which you don’t. (i.e., those Teavana ones I was able to drink)

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a little girl and a devoted bf, two cats, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, fandom!, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

I keep trying to learn languages on Duolingo and failing. I’m currently failing Esperanto. :P

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
