Woke up early this morning (technically afternoon) so I was able to sneak not one but two cups of tea in since I started work later than usual anyway. I made this one of them and I’m only just now realizing that I ended up having two banana teas for breakfast…
I’m sad the sample of this in my latest RiverTea was only a cups worth of leaf; I’d have really liked to share this with VariaTEA because I have a sinking feeling she’d have liked it better than I did. That’s not to say I disliked it though; I thought it was exactly like it had been described to me by Sil many times: liquid banana bread. Who doesn’t love banana bread? Crazy people – that’s who.
But that said I kept mentally comparing it to Tea Desire’s Banana Tea Chocolate Cream and it fell short to TD’s blend every time because of the lack of chocolate and the fact I found it less sweet; and if I remember correctly those were things that she didn’t like about BTCC so I think she’d like this better. The oilyness of the tea liquor was still there though. That trait doesn’t personally bug me, but I know it bothers others.
So yeah; liquid banana bread for sure! Just not something I want to stock when I still have BTCC stocked up and so easily available. But this is one of many RiverTea blends I’ve added to list of ones I’ve tried and it was a great, peaceful morning tea so there’s no regrets with requesting it as one of my samples.
Also leaving a link to a song here because it’s what I was listening to this morning and, again, I’m only now realizing how fitting it was: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Graa_Vm5eA&list=PLAB044185EF279688&index=9
I’m pretty well obsessed with this singer right now, and this album in particular. So good.
