Tea of the Week for April 16, 2018!

Here is where I usually talk about how I came to the decision to blend a particular blend. But come on now, do I really need a reason to craft a blend called Bananas & Cream? No, I didn’t think so.

This blend is really quite simple: I combined Bai Mu Dan and Moonlight White teas with bananas (lots of ’em) and a creamy vanilla cream essence (plus vanilla beans). The result is totally YUM!

Because white tea tends to be on the delicate side, I went lighter with the banana and vanilla so that the beautiful flavor of the tea would not be overpowered. Each sip is a lovely representation of delicate white tea, luscious banana and creamy sweet vanilla.

This one is just right for the warmer weather – it tastes amazing iced! (It also tastes amazing hot!)

ingredients: white teas

organic ingredients: bananas, vanilla beans & natural flavors

Swap Sample Sipdown! (6 | 75)

From Kawaii433!

Oh no, not another 52teas banana tea that I can’t buy! Anne sure is a cruel mistress…

Luckily, this one doesn’t make my skirt fly up quite as much as the pancake version. Phew…

It is really good though! The banana flavor is somewhat green-tasting, probably from the white tea. And I happen to prefer greener bananas, so I’m all for it! Lovely natural and authentic banana taste, with nary a Runt in sight!

Reminds me of a banana smoothie. It’s not quite rich enough to qualify for milkshake, but I like the fresher territory it’s in!

I’m a maple lover, so it’s no surprise that I prefer the pancake version. ;)

Finally made the right one. ^^

It’s really good. It’s a natural banana. The vanilla notes go with it very well. Reminds me of the banana pudding that I loved growing up. A nice woman, we all called grandma, in our neighborhood would make it from scratch for us kids. It was loaded with vanilla wafers. This is yummy.

Yum, I wish there was something like this in the permanent collection.

Oh I’m glad you finally tried this and like it. :D

*I don’t know why I said “finally” when it was the same day. Yikes. haha

Kawaii433

@Cameron B: Tell me about it, I went to see if it was available and it’s gone already. bleh

Kawaii433

@tea-sipper: You’re right though. It’s a good banana!

Mastress Alita

At least you know I will never be responsible for selling out the nanner flavors. I just buy out all the Foggy Coconuts like a big jerk-face. :-P (Yes, I will finally come out and admit it was me, Cameron! I’m SORRY! It’s my favorite tea! T_T)

Cameron B.

@Alita – I understand, don’t worry! One sampler pack was enough for me. :)

Sipdown (647)!

Finished this one off as an iced latte, and it was REALLY good. Basically, it tasted like a less sweet and just slightly more natural version of that banana flavoured Penicillin. I know banana Penicillin is sort of a polarizing thing; some people loved it and some people didn’t. However, I was DEFINITELY on the side of kids that were so incredibly excited whenever they had to take it. So it was very nice to sort of get to relive that experience in a more classed up feeling way.

Very creamy. Much banana. Technically medicinal tasting – but only in the best way.

“Banana Cream Pie without the pie crust” lives up to expectations. Good times.

Steep Count: 2

Due to the nature of the bai mu dan and my brain, I taste something kind of like a blueberry milkshake on the second steep. The banana has toned it back a little from the first steep, letting the tea base (fruity flowers) and vanilla cream flavouring shine (hence blueberries and milkshake).

Flavors: banana, Cream, Custard, Fruit Tree Flowers, Vanilla

oh man…insane day. I had this one earlier and from what i recall it was a little light in the banana department (but that’s the story of my life) but really delcious. Vaguely recall a vanilla-y, sweet sort of flavour. More to write next time i have this one :(

CrowKettle

Hope your day calms down soon! Drinking all the banana teas is punny though (yay for banana teas!).

Oh WOW. I know what this blend should have been called…. Banana. Cream. Pie. I’m a huge fan of banana cream pie and this smells like liquefied banana cream pie right from the pouch. The flavor tastes just like banana cream pie as well. Just sweet creamy banana. And NATURAL banana. Not some weird gross fakey banana. The huge white tea leaves from the combination of Moonlight White and Bai Mu Dan offer quite a nice base for this awesome flavor. I was worried the second steep would be weak in flavor, but not at all! I must have steeped it perfectly. It is amazing that a white tea, that I usually find to be fuzzy, can actually be this creamy. The second steep might be even creamier and banana than the last. I’m a huge fan of this tea! I would not have expected this tea to be so tasty, but I guess that is the magic of FRESH tea.
Steep #1 // a bunch of big leaves for a full mug// 23 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 15 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep

I was thinking ‘banana cream pie’ when I created it but I didn’t include any pastry or butter essences to it so I stuck to the bananas and cream – especially since it reminded me so much of when I’d slice up bananas into a bowl and eat them with milk. :)

tea-sipper

Oh awesome, I love that you were thinking of banana cream pie, because it seems spot on even without the pastry!

52Teas

Yeah, it’s essentially supposed to be the banana cream inside a pie – no pie crust. I was considering adding the pastry notes but I was afraid it would take away from the banana and cream and I wanted that to be the focus.

tea-sipper

Well, it’s perfectly delicious without the pastry anyway! Or I could eat some sort of cookie or dessert while sipping it or something!

CrowKettle

Sweet, that sounds amazing- just what I want to hear after I took the plunge and went for the large size! :)

tea-sipper

Hope my description didn’t set the bar too high, CrowKettle!

CrowKettle

Your description appears accurate, but turns out I got a small size and now I’m sad (no winning). 52Teas killing it with the banana teas, and fruit teas in general!

When I get more disposable income maybe I’ll think about a subscription..

tea-sipper

Oh good, I’m glad my description was accurate but I’m sad you only got a small size.

Evol Ving Ness

I very much enjoyed having a subscription for a year. it gave me the chance to try various teas that I likely would not have ordered otherwise. Recommend.
