My doctor told me to drastically decrease my caffeine intake, which means less tea. I got until 3:30 pm (right now) before making myself my one daily cup. I’d been hoping to cold turkey it and try talking about decaf teas for a while, but I crashed.
Today’s feature: Chocolate Chip Pancakes! YUM!
When you open this up, the chocolate powder puffs out. The majority of the mix is solid (tea parts, etc), but the powder is exciting. It smells REALLY amazing.
This is a malty, dark chocolate flavor. Like the pancakes have been a little bit crisped. The shimmering perky chocolate is a great contrast to the deep assam. Neither overpowers the other. It’s yin. It’s yang. It’s… CHOCOLATE CHIP PANCAKES, GUYS. And oh god, thank goodness, it has caffeine.
I think if you put a splash of milk in this, it’d be GOLD, but we ran out of milk in the office, and it’s my turn to buy it. It’s not a finance issue; it’s a “can’t be bothered to go to a STORE” issue.
I probably can’t be bothered because I have literally no energy in my veins. Caffeine, I miss you.
All of my reviews from here on out will have a certain joy in them because they’re the only times in my day when I am allowed to have my previous zip-juice.
Here’s the scoop!

I love banana nut anything. I actually just made banana nut muffins a few weeks ago and they were delectable. Thanks, Martha Stewart.
One of my favorite teas from DAVIDsTEA is their Banana Nut Bread fruit infusion. But, because it is an infusion, its caffeine free. This is fine for evenings, but I need caffeine during the day. When I saw that A Quarter to Tea had a caffeinated banana nut flavored black tea, I was so excited and ordered a few samples right away.
Every tea I have tried from this company thus far has been a complete dream. I have not disliked a single one. I actually have nothing bad to say about this company as a whole. They have an array of flavor options and super fast shipping.
Anyways, back to banana nut pancakes. This tea was very mellow. DAVIDsTEA’s Banana Nut bread is much more in your face with flavor. This was very mellow and i’m not sure if I would know immediately that it was impersonating banana nut pancakes. However, after a few sips that nuttiness, sweetness from the “pancake” part, and the banana flavor do start to come forward. I think that overall it is a good blend. I can’t say that it compares much to Banana Nut Bread from DAVIDs, for I feel that they are two very different teas. Banana Nut Pancakes is very mellow and good for a treat with breakfast or lunch. Banana Nut Bread is more so a dessert tea that you would have after dinner in place of something fat and calorie laden, as it more so satisfies my sweet tooth than Banana Nut Pancakes.
I still think that A Quarter to Tea is an amazing company and I still have nothing bad to say. I did enjoy this blend and would reorder. It is just not in-your-face with banana and nut flavor, and that is okay. Sometimes you don’t want something dripping with flavoring and sugary sweetness. Sometimes you just want something light and smooth, and that is exactly what Banana Nut Pancakes from A Quarter to Tea will deliver to you with this one!

What could possibly be better than having pancakes for breakfast?
Drinking them of course. Ceylon is used as the base here and is paired with the flavors of banana nut pancakes drizzled in vanilla butter.
Makes an excellent latte.
