So another relaxing tea for me tonight. I was really excited to try this because first it has chocolate in it and second it has bananas… which I love. I open up the package and I don’t really smell much.. hmmm I stick me nose further in the bag and there is a bit of a banana smell and a bit of rooibos but both are subtle.
After the steep it is the gorgeous color that red rooibos tends to be, red! I can smell the bananas and rooibos much stronger now, I have such hopes for this tea if it tastes as it smells.
First sip not to much flavor but I need it to cool a bit, so I wait. Next sip very subtle banana and a hint of rooibos with a touch of creaminess (maybe the chocolate). Good but the flavors are not in your face which I tend to like.
After letting it cool a bit more the flavors come out more, the banana is a cross between banana runts and banana bread, I don’t really chocolate taste :( but more of a mouth feel, and the rooibos is just in the background. A nice tea but it was just that, nice.
