Banana flavored teas are my favorite. I’m a huge banana fan and when I can get a banana flavored tea. . .it just makes me happy.
This particular banana flavored tea is black with pancake flavoring (and 52Teas’ pancake flavoring!) to boot. . I mean c’mon the only possible combo that could be better would be if this tea was a green tea. I’ve been holding this tea for a day where I could really treat myself and that day came over the weekend. (This tea was part of the Christmas special last year so I wanted to treat this tea right.)
This weekend we had a Scholastic Bowl Tournament for my kiddo and I knew this tea would give me the umph to get my day going. I prepared freshly boiled water, added a few scoops of this tea into my Libre Tumbler and set upon my day. I was a little afraid of using my Libre Tumbler since this is a black tea but I wanted that lovely banana pancake flavor so I took a chance.
And I am so glad I did. This tea gave me everything I could have asked for and more. Crisp banana flavors with a sweet pancake maple syrup finish. I eagerly and greedily gulped this tea with abandonment. I even had a few people ask me about my cool tumbler and when they got closer to me and smelled the tea, the conversation quickly turned to- did you just eat a pancake with a side of banana? I wish I could have captured their faces when I told them it was the tea I was drinking.
Delicious with flavors on point, this tea blend was destroyed this weekend. After I got back from the tournament, I actually did a cold brew with what was left of the tea and it was out of this world delicious. The flavors were about the same as when I brewed the tea hot. Just delicious banana flavor with that pancake-maple syrup finish.
As happy as I am that I was able to experience this tea, I’m also kind of sad. This tea was so delicious that I wish I could get more of it and hopefully in the future, this tea will be a reblend so I’ll be able to enjoy this banana flavored pancake tea again.
Thank you 52Teas for again going outside of the box for a flavor that was absolutely fabulous!
