I hope everyone’s week started off with a bang! As you can tell from yesterday's post, I am really enjoying my time here at home!
Today is my last full day in Saskatchewan as I will be leaving back to London tomorrow morning at 10:00 am, so I’ll be soaking up as much time as I can with my Mom and Dad before I leave!
Today I am going to review the final tea that I have left to review of DAVIDsTEA’s fall collection, Banana Nut Bread.
As I mentioned on Sunday, this is my favourite out of all of the five fall teas!
Here is what David has to say about this herbal blend:
Like all amazing recipes, this one took years to perfect – and it was totally worth the wait. This tea miraculously captures the flavour of freshly-baked banana bread. The taste of real banana slices blends perfectly with almonds and the sweetness of dates and currants. It’s fragrant, with all the warmth of a loaf hot from the oven. As deliciously comforting as mama’s special recipe, but without the calories.
The ingredients of this tea are:
- Banana pieces and slices
- Artificial flavouring
As you can see, this tea actually contains no tea at all! So, it’s really not a tea, per say, but it is still absolutely delicious!
I’ve had this tea iced, hot, and as a latte and each method provides you with such joy that you keep going back for more! Needless to say… I have a huge container of this tea in my cupboard at home
This tea is as close to banana bread as you’re going to get without actually eating banana bread, so if you have a craving you know where to go!
I’ve had banana-flavoured teas before, but this one is unique because it has dates and currants in it which adds so much depth and character to the type of sweetness this tea offers! Yes, it tastes like bananas, but most of the sweetness definitely comes from the dates and currants. It’s not too sweet, though. It’s exactly how a banana nut bread tea should be! Banana-y, nutty, and slightly sweet
You can definitely pick out the nutty notes of this tea thanks to the almonds, but it is not an overpowering nutty taste whatsoever.
When I make this tea, I let it steep for the entire time I drink it. It never gets bitter, just sweeter.
This tea definitely does not need any added sweeteners at all, but if you want to add milk – go for it! Banana Nut Bread Latte's are heavenly!
I hope you enjoyed this tea review! I am finally done reviewing DAVIDsTEA's fall collection, so now what? Are there any teas you would like me to review next? Even though I love DAVIDsTEA, I will most definitely review other teas!
