Ugh. I hate staying at my parents house. It interrupts my rouTEAne (Tea Routine). I ran out of my Citrus Green that I brought and all I have left is “Gypsy Cold Cure” which is medicinal. Anyway, to the parents cupboard I went and dug out a single bag of THIS.
It’s wrapped but I have no idea how old it is. Likely at least 5 years out of date. But I need something to drink so this gets the go.
Prepared with boiling stove water for 4 minutes. I have no idea how big the mug is though but I used one teabag.
Taste is… Ok, I don’t recall seeing BANANA as part of the name but boy is there a strong banana flavor. I’m getting a teeny tiny bit of pom here, but mostly just generic “tart” flavor without any real distinguishing characteristics. I’m also getting another fruit. Cherry maybe? It’s sweet, I’ll give it that. It’s actually not as bad as I was expecting. That doesn’t mean it’s good, just that it is drinkable. That banana flavor is distracting though and doesn’t fit the rest of the profile. This tea is trying to be too many flavors at once and none are really shining through very clearly. It’s like “Muddy Fruit: The Tea”. Oh well. If I don’t get fully sick soon, I can head home for next week and get actual decent tea on Monday. In the meantime, send me good tea vibes yinz, for I am sorely lacking them.
Flavors: banana, Cherry, Sweet, Tart
