Okay the whole time I’ve had this tea, I thought it said cocobanana, so I was expecting banana and coconut. You can imagine my surprise when I opened it and was smacked in the face with a strong grapefruit scent. Not at all disappointed, just very surprised. The flavor is almost entirely sour grapefruit. Or maybe it’s other fruits since everyone else seems to be getting different fruit notes from it. It wasn’t the best hot, but cold it’s pretty nice. Definitely needed sugar to balance out the sourness, but I’m enjoying the fruitiness a lot. The flavor is strong and refreshing. Don’t purchase this unless you like sour teas.

I always thought this was a banana tea too, and banana is my demon food. I’m not a huge fan of grapefruit either, but at least can tolerate it depending on the mix… I might have to try a sample sometime knowing banana is off the table.

I don’t like grapefruit either, but I don’t mind grapefruit flavored things. In this blend, I think it might just be hibiscus that my brain is interpreting as grapefruit.

And I’m one of the few people on this site that loves hibiscus; I’m drinking lemonade that I dumped three tsp of plain hibi leaf in right now, so I’m fine with all those really strong hibi teas that everyone else hates!

I’m an event planner who always has two mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, and listening to podcasts.

Favorite flavors: Almond, strawberry, nutty, dessert flavors, melon, mint, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
