The dry leaf smelled great but the wet leaf smells slightly medicinal… uh-oh

I did let this steep for a while, I don’t know how long because I got busy with some other things. The rooibos has a slightly woody flavor and I am definitely getting a lot of banana and fruit but I don’t taste too much chocolate in here. I guess given the name I thought it would be more chocolate-y but it’s a banana tea for sure.

I did give it a resteep and added soymilk but then most of the banana was gone…

I did like it fairly well for a rooibos but not sure if I would purchase any more.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
