Description: We've gone bananas for our inaugural blend! Real dried bananas and natural flavors.

Going a little bananas this week. Too many things to do, and not enough time to do them in, so I felt it was appropriate to offer our Monkey Fart Honeybush from for this week’s Tea of the Week.

Caffeine-free African honeybush blended with real freeze-dried bananas and natural banana flavors. Go bananas with me!

Resteep: weak, but drinkable, I left it in for so long I lost track of time!

I love banana laffy, I love banana runts, I LOVE this tea. I will be very sad when it is gone.

Sorry I do not have pictures of the brewed tea, it disappears from my cup very quickly!
