I STILL haven’t gotten into Doctor Who…I know…I know…shame on me! But one day – not too long ago – I was feeling adventurous and decided to jump into TARDIS Ten – Allonsy! from Tea & Absinthe. Why was I being adventurous just by drinking this tea? Because of the banana, of course! Some of you already know my hate-hate relationship with bananas. I want to like them – I do – but thus far it just hasn’t happened!
I will say for an ingredient I dread so much this was a mighty fine flavored tea! Ingredients include: black tea, flavor, coconut rasps, coconut chips (coconut, coconut fat, sugar), banana bits, cornflower blossoms.
They didn’t skimp on the chunky ingredients! That scored points with me! I think with the deeper, darker black tea taste with the addition of coconut is what counteracted the banana for me – and nicely! Everything meshed well flavor-wise. I wouldn’t change the ratios at all! There was a good amount of sweetness, nuttiness, and black tea taste and I have to say I’m a fan!
This tea PROVES that just because you aren’t fond of ONE ingredient – doesn’t mean you should avoid the tea. If I did avoid it – I would be missing out on a gem of a flavored black tea and fan/themed tea! CHEERS to a tasty cuppa!
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Black Tea
Where to Buy: Tea & Absinthe
One should always take a banana to a party. Especially if you’re going to invent the banana daiquiri two centuries too early. Bananas are good. Tea is good. Banana and coconut flavored black tea? Brilliant!
