This is a very old sample, and I’m embarrassed to say I no longer remember who sent it to me. I’m sure it’s no longer at its best—the banana is faint and the coconut even fainter (but happily not soapy), and I’m guessing the genmaicha base doesn’t pack quite the punch it once would have. That said, I’m still enjoying my cup quite a bit, even in its diminished state. It really does evoke banana pudding—maybe the kind made from mix vs. homemade, but nonetheless—and Nilla wafers. I’m just sorry I didn’t try this one sooner. I used to think banana-flavored tea sounded downright disgusting, but blends like this and Butiki’s Hello Sweetie (RIP) have changed my mind on that.
