Ashmanra’s Sipdown Challenge | May 2023 | A limited edition or seasonal tea
I was going to use this one for the “tea with a three-word name” prompt, but I realized that the Steepster listing includes “Honeybush” in the name, thus making it a four-word name. So instead I’m using it for “A limited edition or seasonal tea,” because this was a 52Teas tea of the week back in September.
I thought I’d reviewed this one before, but apparently not! The banana flavor actually reads more as green/slightly underripe banana than the overripe banana one would use for a baked good, but the warming spices and oatiness balance it out and add some heft. Allspice and nutmeg come through most strongly to me, along with a bit of earthy muddiness from the oats.
In real life, underripe bananas make me gag. Yet the flavor here isn’t bothering me too much.
All in all, this one does what it says on the label! :D
