Thank you Josie Jade but this was far too much orange and not enough banana for me. Try as I may, I could not drink this down. I am sorry but this just isn’t for me.

This delicious blend of fruit and rooibos will have you reminded of a journey down the boardwalk chewing fresh taffy. Bananas will have the taste buds dancing and the rooibos, coconut, and other fruits combine for an amazing beverage. Great hot or as an iced tea.

This came with my last Capital Teas order and I’m finally getting around to trying it. Yes there are HUGE pieces of dried fruit in the mix & this is one of those things you don’t know whether to eat or drink.
This tisane is odd. It smells like banana taffy but there is so much fruit going on in the mix. You get banana, orange and pineapple along with rooibos. I love banana flavored things so I wish they had played that up instead of the other fruit elements. You can’t taste much rooibos here.
I have a few other CT blends which I love but this is kind of a dud. I might need to try this iced as it really reminds me of juice more than taffy or anything else. Should be renamed as “Tropical Fruit Rooibos”
As soon as I smelled this tea I knew that I wanted some. I love banana flavored things and this smells just like banana taffy. I was surprised when I got home and looked up the ingredients to see that it has rooibos in it. There are so many HUGE pieces of dried fruit that you don’t even really notice the little rooibos that there is, which is just fine with me. I even had a difficult time scooping out 1.5 teaspoons because it doesn’t even fit in the teaspoon. I finally made do with just picking out some of the fruits and dropping them into my little teapot. The flavor isn’t exactly like banana taffy. I can taste a lot of other sweet fruit and especially tart pineapple in there too. Adding sweetener took away a lot of the tartness and made it more of a sweet fruity banana flavor. I like this one, I just wish it was a little more bananaish. Or maybe that it was renamed to Fruity Banana blend or something instead of Banana Taffy. I’d still like to try it iced. Another customer in the store told me that if you mix this Banana Taffy with the herbal almond tea it tastes just like banana bread. Although it’s not Capital Teas’ brand, I have a Roasted Almond tea that I just may try that with.
