I’m having issues with the tasting notes box. I didn’t steep it for 7.5 minutes; I steeped it for 6 minutes.

The smell of the tea is quite nice. Real chocolate-banana smell. Kind of like a banana split from DQ if you got it with no strawberries, no pineapple and no ice cream.
I’m trying this one milk-and-sugar because I’m feeling poorly and want an extra treat.
Steeped and in my mug it has more of a baked goods smell. I baked banana chocolate chip mini muffins using a coffee cake recipe i found online for a road trip and this smell reminds me quite a bit of that one. It’s amazing how heat can change a smell.
I don’t like the taste at all. The banana bits taste alcoholic and the chocolate comes through more as a slime on the roof of my mouth than it does as a taste. The smell is lovely; the taste leaves a lot to be desired. And oddly it doesn’t seem to pair well with the milk and sugar that I added, a problem with rooibos that I’ve never had.
I haven’t been on Steepster in months (moved to a new town, been busy, been summer, got pregnant), and it makes me a little sad that this tea marks my return to reviewing teas. I mean, it’s drinkable, but I won’t be reaching for this orange bag of tea to satisfy my tea cravings until my other flavoured rooibos are gone. Le sad.

Sitting: at my desk in the kitchen (taking a break from work) with the window wide open to let the cool air in.
Wearing: slippers and a zip-up sweater.

I quite liked this tea. I had tried a non-flavoured rooibos before & didn’t like it, so wasn’t prepared for the delight which my taste buds experienced with the first sip! The banana flavour is the most prevalent, followed by chocolate. I don’t really taste the walnut or coconut. I prepared with 1 tbsp of 2% milk & 2 tsp of white, granulated sugar. Two thumbs up (or should I say two pinky’s up?) from me!
EDIT: I’ve updated my rating to reflect that I no longer enjoy this tea. I don’t know what happened, but I really can’t stand it now – neither the scent nor the flavour! :(

I really like this tea:) It reminds me of a nice warm banana bread! It is wonderful especially on the cold nights in winter that are rapidly approaching here. I enjoy this tea enough to experiment with it and I have actually cross – brewed this tea with one teaspoon of Mudslide and then a 1/4 teaspoon of " forever nuts" by David’s Tea together. It turns it into a lovely warm banana nut bread. :)

I must say I’ve changed my mind about this tea. I really, really liked it at first & then all of a sudden my taste buds did a complete 180 & I don’t like it anymore. Not sure what happened, but now the fragrance turns my stomach :(

I couldn’t drink this tea. I don’t particularly like strong rooibos teas – once in awhile, but not often – and I really didn’t like this one. I may have brewed it a bit weak, but I wouldn’t want to try it again. I found the banana to be overpoweringly cloying, and the chocolate didn’t mesh well in it. Additionally, the walnuts in it gave me a bit of a headache (but I think I’m mildly allergic, so that was to be expected).

less banana , needs to be in this tea, i have to mix this tea up with stuff just to make it drinkable. the only saving grace of this tea is it is great over ice and it’s great cold

Makes a delicious, life changing latte when mixed with frothy soymilk. Tastes like banana bread fresh out of the oven. I make a very light version with unsweetened soymilk and twin sugar “brown sugar flavour”, and it rocks, 1/2 soymilk, 1/2 tea. It’s just magical.
