The dry leaf smells of black tea and faintly of sweet banana. Brewed, the banana is still faint. It doesn’t smell or taste super artificial to me, more like ripe or over-ripe banana that would go into banana bread. For whatever reason, I didn’t get a bitter brew out of this like some other people, it’s actually pretty mild. I could see this as a tea for someone who usually just likes plain ol’ black, but wants a hint of something different every once in a while.
