From Bird & Blend Tea Co.

Lightly toasted banana bread chai with a dollop of butter!

The blissful smell of banana bread cooling straight from the oven – mmm! Spiced to Bird & Blend chai perfection, this hug in a mug is the perfect combo of banana, cinnamon, vanilla + cardamom.

I bought this a while ago, but no tasting note yet!  This is one of those finely chopped rooibos blends, much like Gingerbread Chai, which I like, because they have a ton of flavor, a good mix of ingredients in each scoop, and you only need to steep one teaspoon to get a pretty strong cup.  Somehow I was actually tasting the banana today and not just the spices.  I like the spices, but I don’t really think of banana bread as spicy.  I would love it to be more BREAD like.  But as is, it’s a spicy banana.  The second steep was mostly spice, banana mostly gone.  I wish more vanilla would peek through as well.  I do love B&B’s finely chopped rooibos blends!  There should be mooorrreeee of them.  I will enjoy this one, but it’s not what I wish it was.
Steep #1 // 1 teaspoon for a full mug // 14 minutes after boiling // 2 1/2 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled  // 5 minute steep

Bird & Blend Tea Advent Calendar Day 22:

I liked this one. I cannot say whether is smelled or tasted of banana. The old sniffer is dead and gone. But this one was smooth and mellow and a bit sweet. After a coiuple of misses, I was glad to enjoy the whole cup and even re steep. The second cup was as good as the first.

Let’s not talk about how much tea I bought on Black Friday.
Thanks to tea-sipper for sharing this tea! I was very happy to get the chance to try it. The flavor is very lightly spicy with just a hint of banana. It doesn’t taste like any other chai I’ve had before. It didn’t need milk. I can’t point out what spices I tasted, just that it was a tasty and subtle combo.

This was very different from what I expected it to taste like – but I didn’t think it was bad. It’s pretty sweet tasting; definitely a cream type of vanilla flavouring and more of that “banana runts” artificial/overripe banana note that what I’d describe as a more natural tasting banana or the kind of “baked banana” taste I’d attribute to a banana bread. The spices are pretty good – cinnamon dominant with a little bit of cardamom. As a “banana chai” I totally get it; the flavours are there! But it just doesn’t land as a “Banana Bread Chai” to me – there’s just a subtle connotation to the word choice; I expect more of a baked note, some buttery elements if you will!? Or even just a little bit of nuttyness. This is just very sweet and almost waxy banana candy flavouring, vanilla, and chai spice.

It’s good – just not what I wanted from the name.

To me, this didn’t smell like banana bread or even banana! More like chai a la caramel. I find I’ve been increasingly going off rooibos, particularly in times of high stress, because the aroma seems to be triggering headaches (anyone else get this? Or do I have a weird anomaly?) Also caffeine, I need caffeine… Overall, I wasn’t certain about this blend. I didn’t seem to hate it or love it.
