Thanks, KiwiDelight, for this one!

Dry leaf smell: Whoa, that’s bananas! The steeped smell is much mellower & that signature rooibos aroma takes the forefront.

Tried the first half of the cup without any additives. With small sips, the banana flavor is prominent. Mmm, like over-ripe bananas or home baked banana bread. When I took a big sip, I didn’t pick-up on it as much, though. I’m odd like that, sometimes.

Read the other reviews and decided to add some rock sugar (2 little pieces) for the second half. Wow, now it really tastes like bananas! And there’s a chocolate taste at the end of the sip. Reminds me more of a chocolate-covered frozen banana than a mudslide… But that’s a good thing b/c it’s quite delicious!

Bio

A tea fanatic who works in the tech sector, I purchase most of my tea online. The numerical ratings are to help me remember which teas I should re-order. 85+ means it’s worth a re-purchase. (If I ever get through all of the new ones I want to try!)

It’s pretty obvious from my tealog, but I have special place in my heart for flavored blacks and good rooibos. I also love oolongs, but apparently have expensive taste in that area, so I don’t purchase them too often. Learning to appreciate green tea, but not a fan of overly vegetal ones. Whites make a great iced tea.

I love to try new teas and will sample most anything once. Although I’ll usually pass on Earl Grey or super floral blends.

I drink my tea with no additions, unless otherwise noted in the review.
