From Luhse Tea

Devilishly delicious dessert tea without the high calorie for those that go bananas over chocolate.

This is the last of my Luhse rooibos samples, and my favourite of the four I’ve tried. For starters, it’s the best tasting chocolate banana tea I’ve tried in a good long time. It tastes delicious! This is just a straight rooibos blens – no honeybush here – and I honestly think that’s how I prefer it. Small pieces of freeze dried banana (and apple, strangely) are evident among the dry leaf, along with some chocolate flakes, cocoa nibs, and a generous smattering of whole pink peppercorns. I used 1 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it 4 minutes in boiling water. No additions.

To taste, banana is the most prominent flavour. It’s a little candy-like in the way of banana runts, but that’s no terrible thing in a sweet, dessert style blend like this one. The chocolate emerges in the mid-sip, and adds a creamy, rich depth to the overall cup. It works really well with the banana – a great, well realised combination if ever there was one. There’s a slight saltiness towards the end of the sip that’s a little out of place, but I can overlook that since the rest of the flavour is so spot on. It’s barely there, anyway.

This is a Luhse rooibos blens I’d consider repurchasing. It’s tasty and flavour-accurate, and that’s exactly what I want from a flavoured tea. It’s nice to have a sweet, decedent caffeine-free blend on hand, too. I finally feel like I’ve struck gold with Luhse!
