The brewed leaves are all banana Popsicle with a touch of cinnamon and spice, but mostly it is all banana, seriously I need to get some banana Popsicles next time I am at the store, it is one of those fruit flavors that I actually like. The liquid has a lot more smoke and cayenne pepper, it smells hot, my nose is not melting off, but it is certainly making my eyes water!
So, when I tasted this tea, I was in my basement lair entertaining Ben as my guest and a bunch of spiders (because basement) and I was talking about my trepidation with this tea, because I am a weeny with hot things. Getting over my fear after waiting for it to cool to drinking temperature, the beginning of the sip is mild, a blend of sweet banana and a touch of smoke then OMG OMG OMG HOT!!!! I actually wrote in my notebook, and I quote 'heat, hot, cough, death. Really tasty, but Jebus!' Ben had a good laugh at my expense after he checked to make sure my coughing was from the cayenne pepper and not triggering an asthma attack (it does that sometimes) but peril aside, I enjoyed this tea, the initial sip's surprising explosion of cinnamon and cayenne pepper at the midtaste because less surprising so I did not choke each time I drank some, which is something good when drinking tea.
