drank Happy Banana by RiverTea
12886 tasting notes

OH MAN! SOOOOOO GOOOD! Seriously…So when i first pulled this out of the bag i was like hmm..expensive trail mix anyone? It’s a heavy tea AND it’s 3tsp per cup….and there’s giant coconut strips in this…but MAN OH MAN. love it. My other half is making banana bread tonight..and this is like liquid banana bread. I even convinced him to have some and he was like oh hey…that’s really good. It even smells like banana bread baking in the oven… and the coconut? totally not overpowering and likely just adding to the delicious creamy banana taste. I dunno what else to say…this tea? sooo good. I had originally picked this up because i like banana flavoured teas and because i figure i’d try some teas that didn’t have tasting notes to help RiverTea out since i won their contest. I’m SOOOOO happy i did.

This isn’t the same sort of banana from foxy’s roxy’s tea…this is honestly…liquid banana bread. so it’s sweet…and very much banana bread..and so good..and did i mention it’s like drinking banana bread? holy god i love this smell… lol

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Gaaah liquid banana bread. Must buy!

Sil

it’s stupidly good courtney…it’s expensive because it’s a heavy tea..but i am going to love having this as a caffeine free option. guess you could eat the pieces after too haha i’d send you some but uh….there might already be something in the mail on it’s way to you lol

Courtney

WELL THEN. :P Hah, I’ve been waiting to do a RiverTea order because I wanted to see reviews first. I may actually have enough to place an order soon though.

Sil

the pear one is pretty nice too for a fruit tea. I’m finding i like their fruit teas a bunch. Their puerhs are pretty puerh-like so stay away from those if you don’t actually like the earth puerh sort of taste..

Courtney

Awesome. I need more herbals. Always.

CelebriTEA

Hmmm…This has me thinking…I have previously tasted a banana tea I liked…
hmmm….now what was it? I need to go through my tasting notes.
I love fruity teas and puerhs…

Sil

celebritea…i love puerh, but i’m not crazy about the puerh that RiverTea uses. :)

Sweet Helen was awesome; my favourite of the three fruit blends I got. Personally, I really dislike Dynamite of Fruits and I’d recommend staying away from Chocolate Kisses Chili if you dislike spicy teas. The spices in it are not subtle. I’m eyeing up this one (wondering how similar it is to the Banana Chocolate Fruit blend that Tea Desire carries) and Swedish Cocktail (I think that’s what it’s called…).

CelebriTEA

Thanks Sil…it is amazing to me how different puerhs can be.
While you are supposed to get many re steeps from them,
I am finding that I enjoy the first couple of steeps the best when
I seem to get the most earthy & smoky flavors from some ;-)

Sweet Jebus, that sounds good. A hell of a lot more promising than David’s Banana Bread last year.

keychange I laughed when I saw that ^.

I wonder how this tea compares & contrasts with
Plantain Coconut Raw Green Bush Tea by The Republic of Tea.
That was before I ever thought I could like banana in a tea…lol…

Sil

never had it so i can’t say. :)

CelebriTEA

It is a good one, Sil :-)

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling as well!

Most of that is on hold these days though, including tea drinking like I used to as I have a new little one who eats up all my spare time.
