From Maya Tea

This rich red blend starts with Rooibos, an herbal bush tea with a delicate and slightly nutty, earthy flavor. Over this gentle base, we’ve added the tropical flavors of hearty coconut and smooth, creamy banana slices. Orange peel adds a pop of zest to this sweet blend. Perfect for young ones and those sensitive to caffeine, this blend is fantastic hot or iced.

I had to get a tasting note for this one in, especially as it is part of the allergen sale. I LOVE this one. It’s the ultimate of dessert teas. It’s very sweet, coconut, banana and mango. Very fresh coconut even a year later. Very banana and coconut on a lovely rich rooibos base. It tastes like a banana/coconut cream pie. The name is accurate! I have enjoyed this one a few times, so my sample is almost gone. I would love to get more.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for full mug // 20 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 12 minute steep

edited to add: The very long second steep was even more full and rich. The ultimate dessert tea.

Ooh, I’d been eyeing their allergen sale. Might have to pick this one up!

I have been craving for something sweet, but it is past 8 pm, so a sweet sounding tea blend it is!

I prepared moreless as suggested; 1 tsp, almost boiling water, pretty much long steep (I think I did 5-6 minutes).

Sadly, it isn’t that sweet as I have been hoping for. Yes, coconut is there. It reminds me a bit one local cookies. There is some banana too, as it cools down. So yeah, I think it can be low-calorie version of the macaroon. Next time I will try a bit shorter steeping. I think the rooibos a bit of overpowering the intended flavour profile.

In conclusion, not a winner for me. I realize I can’t tell much from one steep. Some teas need some tweaks in steeping. I guess this will be one of them. Thank you Michelle for including it in the box for me!

With milk, this has a pretty nice, mild banana flavor. The rooibos itself is super strong and not the most pleasant of rooibos, so unfortunately it steals a lot of the attention. The coconut leaves a fresh, tasty coconut flavor that goes well with the banana. If the rooibos could be toned down, this would be a pretty great blend. And as usual, I wish the banana could be amped up even more!

I am pleasantly surprised with how much I like this one. :D

Ha yeah, I only have one serving left from my 1 oz bag, so I must have enjoyed it pretty well too!
