WHAT IS A ROOIBOS TEA-my review of the banana dulce

WHAT IS A ROOIBOS TEA - art of tea ad

I love this Banana Dulce tea from Art of Tea. It is very sweet with a dominant banana flavor. I admit when I ordered it I didn’t know that it was more of an herbal tea with rooibos leaves but I’m very pleased with it. The banana dulce selection is caffeine free with a malty, honey and sweet flavor. It blends ripe banana and sweet coconut with an aroma of fresh graham cracker and a deep caramel. To prepare use fresh filtered water with a water temp of 206F and steep for 5-7 minutes. Since it comes as a loose-leaf selection you can use a ball or purchase the filter bags from Art of Tea. Keep the bag sealed and away from light, humidity and heat. Click here to purchase from Thrive market a great pairing of fresh banana bread for a great tasty snack with banana dulce tea.

Available in 4 oz zip pouch for $22 or 1 lb zip pouch for $75.
