From Adagio Teas

One sip of our Honeybush Banana Nut tea and you’ll feel as though you’re standing in the middle of your local bakery, about to take a bite out of a freshly baked muffin! This smooth brew deliciously combines your love of baked goods with our full-bodied honeybush tea. So not only is it sugar-free, it is caffeine-free as well! Making it the perfect indulgence for both morning and night.

The ubiquitous banana took a long time to become a staple fruit snack in the U.S. (the 1870s) and even longer to be featured in a tea cake (the 1930s). However, plain or baked into desserts, the combination of creamy chestnuts and sweet bananas is just what a modern beverage deserves. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon, cocoa nibs, and apple pieces, and you’ll have to go round the world to find anything silkier in taste or more satisfying. Honeybush makes it healthful with its plethora of flavones and other natural elements that fight disease (antioxidants) and improve immunity.

Herbal Tea | No caffeine | Steep at 212° for 5 minutes.

While I don’t go seeking out banana teas, I can envision honeybush as being a good base tea for the flavor.

@gmathis for sure it’s such a mellow flavor anything stronger would have lost the flavor unless they went candy banana which i like but was not this!

John and I had this tea with just oatly yesterday. I steeped the tea for 4 mins for mine and 5 mins for Johns and the flavors were actually pretty different.

Preparation: Western with oatmilk
Tasting Note: My tea (4 mins) banana notes more prominent. It was creamier and lighter. John’s tea (5 min- I tasted a couple sips) cinnamon and richer bread notes more prominent. Banana flavor wasn’t as noticeable at this time. I would say this is one of the better adagio honeybush blends.

Flavors: Banana, Bread, Cinnamon

Advent tea
First steep is very balanced with a sweet banana and nut combination. The second steep is more nutty and I’m hard pressed to pick which one I like better. A nice change from the minty/camomile evening blends. I’ll certainly remember this one on my next Adiago order.

Had this from my rooibos sampler. Both steepings where combined and used sugar to sweeten. I liked this more than the Pecan Turtle rooibos. Though honeybush is a less woody taste than rooibos. Sweet with the chestnut adding a nice brown sugar taste. The banana is there, though more in the after taste and in a more vague sweet starch flavor. I don’t remember the cinnamon much, but I don’t think it did more than a supporting role. Going to enjoy using this in a blend.

I got a bag of this as a stocking stuffer for one of the two tiny roommates who keep pilfering my tisane bin. The toll is I get to try it! I’m liking this. It’s spot on the nutty banana flavor. It’s strong, but the flavor is light. I’m tempted to add some cream or something to give it some depth and richness. It’s a little bit woody from the honeybush, but not rooibos which I appreciate. This is alright. I don’t think I’d buy a bag for myself, but the tiny roomies seem to dig it.

Adagio Advent Calendar – Day 14

Wow, this smells amazeballs! It smells just like banana bread to me, and I love banana teas so it’s totally making my mouth water…

The taste isn’t quite as good as the smell, but still really good. It has a lovely mix of banana and spice cakey flavors with creamy nuts as well. The banana veers a little Runt-y at times, but overall this tastes buttery and cakey and banana-y with roasted nuts and light, warm spicing. As Rachael would say, Yum-o!

Definitely going on the order list, and the first winner for me from Adagio!

Smells like a creamy cough syrup I used to have as a child. Yum, unironically.
