Tea of the Week for April 16, 2018: Bananas & Cream White Tea!

Posted by on

 Bananas & Cream White Tea!

Tea Description: Here is where I usually talk about how I came to the decision to blend a particular blend. But come on now, do I really need a reason to craft a blend called Bananas & Cream? No, I didn't think so. 

This blend is really quite simple: I combined Bai Mu Dan and Moonlight White teas with bananas (lots of 'em) and a creamy vanilla cream essence (plus vanilla beans). The result is totally YUM! 

Because white tea tends to be on the delicate side, I went lighter with the banana and vanilla so that the beautiful flavor of the tea would not be overpowered. Each sip is a lovely representation of delicate white tea, luscious banana and creamy sweet vanilla. 

This one is just right for the warmer weather - it tastes amazing iced! (It also tastes amazing hot!)

ingredients: white teas

organic ingredients: bananas, vanilla beans & natural flavors

This is one that I awaited anxiously for its taste testing day to come! I wanted to start sipping on some bananas and cream! And this is perfect! It reminds me of one of my favorite breakfast treats - but one that I sadly don't indulge in very often - sliced bananas with milk. It's a simple thing but it tastes so good.

And so it is with this tea. The banana, the vanilla - the TEA! Everything is very harmonious with this cuppa. It's sweet and delicious but still very light and refreshing. Just a very pleasant cuppa.

to brew: steep 3g of leaf (with white tea, you'll be measuring close to a rounded tablespoon [3 teaspoons] of leaf because the leaf is large and bulky) to 12 ounces of hot water (heated to 170°F) and let it steep for 3 1/2 minutes. I'll be real - I couldn't wait the usual 5 minutes cool time because I wanted to taste that banana! I started sipping right away and even those first sips were delicious but I found that after five minutes or so, the flavors really began to develop more and the tea tasted even better. 

So if you CAN wait, wait the 5 minutes. But if you can't . . . I understand and won't judge.
