Thursday Tea Time - Cocoa-banana!

This week - The Republic of Tea - Banana Cuppa Chocolate

Cost:  $10.99 at Rice Epicurian/River Oaks
Number of teabags:  36
Caffeine:  No
Type of tea:   Red/Rooibos
Steeping time:  7 minutes
Add ins:  Coffee Mate's Natural Bliss Sweet Cream
Tea fragrance:  Banana!
Ingredients:  Rooibos, cocoa, carob, sweet blackberry leaves, banana bits, chocolate flavoring, banana flavoring
Opinion:  This really does taste and smell like bananas -- and slightly chocolate, but not artificial-y at all.   I used two teabags, and a huge (16 ounce) mug, and drank every last drop.   This is another of their "cuppa chocolate tea" series.  Hey, when you have a good thing going, why stop?!   I only wish the chocolate/carob was a bit stronger, that's the only reason for the slight ding from a 5
Rating: 4.5
