This VP debate is hilarious. Pretty sure the moderator wins.

I haven’t seen this one around Atlanta so I had to grab it in Florida last week.

Since RoT’s bags tend to produce an underwhelming cup, I put two in a mug and added milk. I’m just going to leave the bags in there to steep while I drink.

This one is actually really good this way. It’s creamy and chocolatey. I can taste banana, and it’s not bad but just kind of fake.

I accidentally forgot about it and now it’s cold and it tastes like banana chocolate milk! So this is good either way when it’s with milk I would think. I was kind of iffy about picking it up but I’m glad I did it in the end!

I’m not a huge fan of RoT but, I don’t mind their rooibos blends too much. I really enjoyed their raw bush teas … I’ve just found that with the bagged versions you have to double up on the bags to get much flavor. I might have to check my local Whole Foods to see if they have this one… I do love banana and chocolate.

I second that on Republic of Tea. The plaintain coconut rooibos I got was pretty decent, but weak flavored. Awhile back I tried their “daily green” at a coffee shop and it was awful. I remember thinking, “who in their right mind would drink this every day?!”

Banana and chocolate! ♥

I really love banana-flavored foods, so even though this is a rooibos based blend and I don’t necessarily crave rooibos teas, I thought it may be good as an evening cuppa. The teabag smells really strongly of rooibos with just a little hint of chocolate and no banana whatsoever, blah. The flavor is actually more of chocolate with just a little bit of rooibos noticeable, and a nice sweet banana finish that reminds me a little of banana popsicles! I like this tea because even though it is a rooibos tea there is none of the awkward rooibos aftertaste that I despise. Hooray, this tea surprised me in a good way!

-Round natural unbleached teabag.
-Teabag smells heavily of rooibos with a hint of chocolate. Tea liquor aroma is of ripe banana and rich chocolate.
-Tea liquor is a cloudy reddish brown color.
-Chocolate and slight rooibos flavor with a sweet banana popsicle finish.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. Nice banana flavor with very little rooibos aftertaste.

This tea blend is okay. I like the banana notes, but they seem a little artificial with alcoholic type scent… like an banana-scented ester that I made in high school chemistry class! I noticed the chocolate, which helped the banana a little bit, but not enough IMO. This is good with a little milk to subdue the banana notes. Otherwise, I don’t think I will be purchasing this beverage in the future; however, it is a good beverage for bedtime just because its rooibos.

I really do like RoT’s cuppa chocolate tea collection. I enjoyed the red velvet cake tea and so I was eager to try this one. I very much am interested by the combination of banana and chocolate. Plus, rooibos? Yes! This tea had a similar taste to the red velvet cake tea, but with the addition of banana flavor (slightly artificial). I drank the whole cup, but will I go back and purchase more tins of this? Probably not. If it were more creamy or flavorful and not as artificial, I think I would like this one much more.

Upon starting to sip this drink, it’s cooled off quite a bit because I forgot about it, and I can definitely taste the banana flavour, a bit fake but okay, and I can hardly taste the chocolate at all.

Okay, so I reheated it in the microwave and I’m drinking it a little hotter and I can taste the chocolate now. This is a pretty good tea when all the tastes are out. I did add milk and sugar, like I normally do to dessert teas.

Yet another chocolate tea I am disappointed by, in addition their banana flavoring is subpar – 52teas was much better.

You probably would have laughed if you saw my face when I took my first sip of this tea. It was one of those, WHOA it actually tastes like chocolate and banana, faces. Though I don’t taste artificial banana like everyone else seems to. When I think of artificial banana I think of Runts bananas. Which is surprisingly close to banana flavor for a candy but this and that are still a bit different to my tongue. Now I just have to find out whether or not it’s dairy free so that my husband can have a cup too.

Artificial banana flavor always reminds me of Now and Laters. That is where my love of that flavor began. I can’t remember where I heard it, but I was told that artificial banana flavor came from one random variety of banana which is why it tastes different than the bananas we are used to eating fresh. Now I want to research it. I can see a good 30 or more invested in this quest!

It’s dairy free!!! The company e-mailed me back today and said there is no dairy! Woot!

A little artificial, but honestly, I haven’t had banana flavoured anything that didn’t taste that way.

That said, this is my second favorite RoT “Cuppa Chocolate” tea. Very tasty, and really hits the spot when I want something sweet. I add milk and sugar…YUM.

I use two teabags with this, because it can be a little weak. (Although, I add two teabags to just about everything, so YMMV.) I also let this steep for an unusually long time, that is, if I don’t just leave the bag in there out of laziness. ;)

Oh, and I also love that I can have this tea at night, which is when I usually want to curl up with a dessert tea. I usually have to avoid my other teas because I’d be wide awake at bedtime.

This tea is very similar to the Mudslide tea from Teaopia and later Teavana. It has a good balance of chocolate and banana (a little less artificial than the Mudslide tea) and without the yummy nutty flavor. I really like banana flavoring and I think this is a bagged tea worth my restocking.

Republic of Tea sure nails the scents on their dessert teas! I could have sworn someone was baking chocolate chip banana bread in my kitchen while this one was steeping. Unfortunately, the flavor just can’t live up. I used 2 tea bags and steeped for almost 10 minutes, but I’m still finding this rather bland and watery. What I do taste is artificial banana flavor with just a bit of chocolate. On the plus side, there is no unpleasant rooibos aftertaste with this one!
