MilitiaJim hates banana that isn’t a plain real fresh banana. It didn’t find this offensive.

I on the other hand love it as a sweet dessert treat late night tea!

Post-Steep Additives: a bit of German rock sugar, really makes it a nice treat!

Okay, even though I dislike rooibos, I have to try this one. Such high accolades from you means it has to be good!! :)

lol-i guess i am a picky one!
It has a strong rooibos undertone, so if you really don’t like rooibos it is probably not for you – on the other hand it isn’t rooibossy. (disclaimer: i like rooibos!)

LOL! I love rooibossy — it’s the perfect term :D

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).

50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
