I picked up a taster/sample size of this one with my first AQTT order (I’m seriously late to this party!), and I’m already wishing I’d bought a bigger bag. I knew straight away, after only one tiny sip, that this would be tea love. I don’t know that I absolutely get pancakes, but as it happens I really don’t care. That’s because there’s banana and nuts in spades, and that’s what I really wanted from this blend. Something to rival Butiki’s Foxy Roxy’s Banana Walnut Treat, which I still miss. Well, this is it. I’ve finally found it!

The banana here isn’t over-strong or artificial, but it’s at a level I consider perfect. It tastes like actual ripe banana, like it’s been somehow smooshed into the tea. It has that sweetness, and that undeniable banana-ness, that you’d get from an actual banana. The nuts play second fiddle, but they’re definitely there. I get mostly walnut, but there’s something richer and more pecan-like in there too, along with a light creaminess.

I adore this, and it’s definitely one I’d buy more of next time.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp

Sounds yum!


I really liked AQ2T’s Grilled Spiced Banana.

Hi :) I’m Sarah, and I live in Norfolk in the UK. My tea obsession began when a friend introduced me to Teapigs a good few years ago now. Since then, I’ve been insatiable. Steepster introduced me to a world of tea I never knew existed, and my goal is now to TRY ALL THE TEAS. Or most of them, anyway.

I still have a deep rooted (and probably life-long) preference for black tea. My all-time favourite is Assam, but Ceylon and Darjeeling also occupy a place in my heart. Flavoured black tea can be a beautiful thing, and I like a good chai latte in the winter.

I also drink a lot of rooibos/honeybush tea, particularly on an evening. Sometimes they’re the best dessert replacements, too. White teas are a staple in summer — their lightness and delicate nature is something I can always appreciate on a hot day.

I’m still warming up to green teas and oolongs. I don’t think they’ll ever be my favourites, with a few rare exceptions, but I don’t hate them anymore. My experience of these teas is still very much a work-in-progress. I’m also beginning to explore pu’erh, both ripened and raw. That’s my latest challenge!

I’m still searching for the perfect fruit tea. One without hibiscus. That actually tastes of fruit.

You’ve probably had enough of me now, so I’m going to shut up. Needless to say, though, I really love tea. Long may the journey continue!

My rating system:

91-100: The Holy Grail. Flawless teas I will never forget.

81-90: Outstanding. Pretty much perfection, and happiness in a cup.

71-80: Amazing. A tea to savour, and one I’ll keep coming back to.

61-70: Very good. The majority of things are as they should be. A pleasing cup.

51-60: Good. Not outstanding, but has merit.

41-50: Average. It’s not horrible, but I’ve definitely had better. There’s probably still something about it I’m not keen on.

31-40: Almost enjoyable, but something about it is not for me.

11-30: Pretty bad. It probably makes me screw my face up when I take a sip, but it’s not completely undrinkable.

0-10: Ugh. No. Never again. To me, undrinkable.
