OK, I’m seldom “excited” to try a rooibos blend, and even though Frank is a genius when it comes to blending I can’t say that even his rooibos blends are something that elicits excitement from me.
That said, I still received this tea as part of my subscription, so I gave it a try. And it’s not bad. It tastes a lot like a smoothie. If you drink it warm, it tastes like a warm smoothie which is a little weird, so this is one that I think tastes better iced, if for no other reason than the smoothie aspect of it.
The orange dominates, the banana is a little less distinguished. A casual sip gives off a flavor that is kind of creamy like a banana but not a definite banana taste. When I slurp, the banana is stronger. I think that this blend would benefit with a little vanilla, just to enhance that smoothie thing.
Good … I enjoyed it.
