When it comes to bananas, I never really considered them to be a favorite fruit. However, my actions seem to tell a different story. When I go to Cold Stone Creamery, I seem to order the same thing: Cake Batter ice cream with banana, caramel and almonds. And I love banana cupcakes and ice pops.
But I don’t really like to eat them on their own. And I don’t like banana Runts, in fact, on the rare occasion that I happen to have a bag of Runts candy (maybe once a year, if that? I’m usually just sneaking a couple out of my daughter’s package of candy) I never eat the banana ones. Interestingly enough, many people often say that banana flavored teas taste like banana runts, but I totally disagree with that, because I LOVE banana flavored teas!
And this banana flavored white tea from The Rabbit Hole may just be one of the best banana flavored teas I’ve tried yet. It tastes like the fruit, only sweeter … but it doesn’t taste like banana runts. It tastes more like the banana that I’d enjoy as its surrounded by the Cake Batter ice cream from Cold Stone.
The white tea tastes sweet with a hint of nutty flavor to it. It has a smooth and creamy texture which lends itself very well to the ice cream comparison I made a moment ago. I like that while the banana flavor is very distinct, it doesn’t overwhelm the flavor of the white tea.
Served hot, it has a warm, soothing kind of effect: like comfort food in liquid form. Served chilled, it has a very refreshing, invigorating taste that both adults and kids enjoy.
I LOVE this tea!
