I figured with all the old teas I have been working on, I should try something new. I first tried this when it was freshly brewed and wasn’t too impressed. Then I got held up with a phone call from a friend from Montreal and now a second call from my sister. I grabbed my cup to take a sip and the tea had completely cooled down. To my surprise, this brought out a whole bunch of flavors. The base, though present, moved aside, leaving room for a caramel banana goodness to take over. There is a berry essence from the strawberry floating in the cup, not the most prominent flavor but enough to help see the idea of banana split. A sweet and creamy custard underlies each sip. It’s interesting how temperature can make such a difference given that I was going to write this off when hot but now having it cooled, I am enjoying it significantly more.
