I bought this a while ago, but no tasting note yet! This is one of those finely chopped rooibos blends, much like Gingerbread Chai, which I like, because they have a ton of flavor, a good mix of ingredients in each scoop, and you only need to steep one teaspoon to get a pretty strong cup. Somehow I was actually tasting the banana today and not just the spices. I like the spices, but I don’t really think of banana bread as spicy. I would love it to be more BREAD like. But as is, it’s a spicy banana. The second steep was mostly spice, banana mostly gone. I wish more vanilla would peek through as well. I do love B&B’s finely chopped rooibos blends! There should be mooorrreeee of them. I will enjoy this one, but it’s not what I wish it was.
