I am a new tea drinker – and this is my first oolong tea. I decided to go with the oolong-banana combo since a number of people on Steepster seem to enjoy it, plus it has a great aroma (if you like bananas). The aroma of the dry tea reminds me a little of those old school banana marshmallow candies (which I love). After brewing the tea, the banana aroma fades and the aroma of the tea takes over. On first tasting, I can’t say that I can really taste any banana at all (which is a little disappointing) though it maybe lends a little sweetness to the tea. I enjoy the tea – which is to say that I will be ordering a few more oolongs to see how this one compares! I will also try a second steep to see if I get more of a banana hit :)
