Another of my “old” 52 Teas blends. I’m actually pretty sure I’m nearly through the 2oz pouches I have left, which are the really old ones. I’ve maybe four or five or those left to try. After that, I’ll be on the sample pouches which are still “old” 52 Teas but newer (if that makes sense!), and then after that there’ll just be “new” 52 Teas stuff left. Who says I can’t get my cupboard under control within the next decade?
Anyway, I wanted to like this one. Like, really wanted to like it. It’s my second banana tea of the day, but sadly, again, there’s not as much banana as I’d hoped.
I used 1 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it 3 minutes in boiling water. As with Bananas Foster, there’s a touch of astringency in the initial sip, but it’s nothing I can’t overlook. The main flavour here is strawberry, and while that’s nice, I was really looking forward to the combination of strawberry and banana. It’s not here, but the strawberry does have a yoghurty, almost smoothie-like vibe to it so that’s something. I added a splash of milk to my cup, and I think it helps with that at least a little. Otherwise, this is just your basis artificial-strawberry tea. Not bad, but not amazing.
