Taster’s Review:

This OYGFIB? (which translates into Orange You Glad Frank is Bananas?) Rooibos Blend from 52Teas tastes a lot like a smoothie.  A warm smoothie, since I’m drinking it hot, but, the flavors of orange and banana together really remind me of a smoothie.

When I poured my first cup of this tisane, I could smell the distinct aroma of the woody rooibos.  Since I’m not a big fan of the taste of rooibos, that scent worried me a little bit, but, the first sip changed my mind.  This is tasty.

The bright citrus-y notes of orange are what I taste first.  It is sweet and tangy, but not too tart.  The banana is a little less distinguished.  I can taste another fruit in this, but I can’t say that it tastes definitely like banana.  When I take a casual sip, it tastes like orange blended with a nondescript, bland fruit that lends a little bit of creaminess to the cup.  Not a bad taste … but again, I can’t say that it tastes like banana.

But when I slurp the tisane, then the banana comes through more distinctly.  With the aeration of the slurp, I notice a pleasing balance between banana and orange.  Sweet, and yes … still a little creamy, and tangy.  Fruity!

It’s an enjoyable tisane.  Not my favorite from 52Teas, but I like it and I’d happily drink it again.
