Woohoo, a parcel from Cameron arrived yesterday!

This one does say to steep and enjoy with milk, which I’m not doing (as a disclaimer).

I steeped this for 5.5 minutes, which I was a bit concerned would result in astringency in the base, but I’m happy to report that’s not the case. The base is smooth with just enough depth to make it substantial. The first smell and taste is lemongrass, which I don’t know if I’ve ever had in combination with a black base. While there’s nothing wrong with it, I wasn’t overly thrilled with just a lemongrass black tea. Happily, the banana starts to kick in as the tea cools. It takes a backseat to the lemongrass, but the fit nicely together, creating an almost creamy profile. Overall, a fairly tasty cup and I’m grateful to have been able to try it.

Thanks Cameron!

I was really expecting this to be more or less a banana black – but I missed that there was lemongrass. Although I like lemongrass in certain blends, I didn’t care for the inclusion here for whatever reason. It just didn’t fit in, somehow?

Finally got my Dessert by Deb order after a month of it hanging out in Chicago. So I’m going on a tasting spree since I still need to choose my teas for my Instagram giveaway win!

The dry leaf smells heavenly, with a rich and sweet banana aroma. And it tastes pretty good too! The banana flavor is strong but tastes like an actual ripe banana, with plenty of sweetness. The coconut is secondary and adds a bit of creaminess. I’m not sure I taste the lemongrass at all, at least in this cup? There’s a slight green-ness to the banana at the end of the sip that I really enjoy.

My only complaint is that I can’t really taste the black tea underneath the stronger banana flavor. But it does remind me a bit of banana bread because of the sweet, ripe banana notes. And that’s pretty close to cake!

I drank this in the middle of a hectic work day, and admittedly don’t remember much about it. I remember tasting banana and coconut, and I remember liking it.

I oversteeped this and then forgot about the mug so I got a lot of brisk and cold black tea when I did get around the drinking it, but also a nice greener banana note paired with hints of lemongrass and toasted coconut. While not really “cake like” those flavours were nice and I thought well balanced with each other aside from the dominating black tea from my crude and forgetful steeping.
