When opening an envelope of this tea, you are struck with a pleasant chocolate and banana fragrance. When brewed, both are somewhat faint flavors. They’re there, but the flavors just aren’t that strong, even at two teaspoons. I will try three teaspoons next time I steep a cup.
The ingredients listed on this page leave out quite a bit, so I’m going to list them here (copied right off the package) and also update the page info. We’ll see if the page info remains complete. I’ve noticed that the Teavana teas on this site only list the main natural ingredients and usually leave out fillers.
Ingredients: Rooibos (long cut), banana pieces (banana, sugar, vegetable oil), cocoa peel, walnuts, chocolate drops (sugar, cocoa mass, cocoa butter, clarified butter, low fat cocoa powder, emulsifier (soy), coconut rasps, flavoring (banana, chocolate, cream).
Is the flavoring natural or artificial? I thought that had to be listed on products sold in the US.
