Ingredients & Lore
Blended With Honeybush Tea, Apple Pieces, Cinnamon Bark, Cocoa Nibs, Natural Banana Flavor, Natural Chestnut Flavor & Marigold Flowers
Bananas appeared in the US around the 1870s, but it took a bit longer for them to appear as ingredient for desserts. The modern banana bread recipe began showing up in cookbooks around the 1930s and its popularity was greatly helped by the introduction of baking powder on the market. Some food historians believe banana bread was a byproduct of the Great Depression as resourceful housewives did not wish to throw away overripe bananas (as they were still a costly item to purchase), others believe the modern banana bread was developed in corporate kitchens to promote flour and baking soda products.

Latte Sipdown (602)!

So, I was definitely correct in my assumption that this would be much better as a latte! I did find that it still wasn’t quite as rich and banana flavour dominant as the dry leaf smelled, but at least in latte form it didn’t taste bland. I got a fair bit of the woody and nutty honeybush, and the overall mug was really quite creamy/silky with a very velvety smooth mouthfeel. The banana was present, and worked enough with the base for me to clearly get the “banana nut” profile/titular flavour – a little on the sweet banana runt end of the flavour spectrum, but I think in banana nut bread that’s the profile that you’re ultimately aiming for anyway. So it all worked!

So do I recommend this tea straight up? No. However, I do think it’s worth drinking in latte form!

So the first time I tried this tea, it tasted absolutely amazing. Exactly like its namesake. Every cup after that, however, ended up with a strange underlying…peppery? flavor. So delicious on top, strangeness lurking below. I’ll probably order more sometime next year and play around with it to try to coax it to its original perfection. That first cup was seriously in my top ten ever cups of tea.
