Banana Split by The Rabbit Hole Organic Tea Bar, Redfern

H is one of the few people I know who enjoys tea almost as much as I do and is always the hap­pi­est to vis­it The Rabbit Hole Organic Tea Bar with me.

This vis­it, I’m a little adven­tur­ous and try their Banana Split ($5.00 for a pot), a red rooibos with freeze dried banana.

The tea is a trans­lu­cent deep red-brown with a pleas­ant trop­ic­al hint to a prom­in­ent rooibos nose. The rooibos mel­lows in the taste of the tea, with its earthy notes com­ing through ahead of a creamy round­ness devel­op­ing in the body from the banana, leav­ing a gentle, trop­ic­al and earthy after­taste long on the pal­ate. Overall, the fla­vour reminds of the deli­cious toasted edges of banana bread and is one of the most enjoy­able red rooibos teas for me.

The Rabbit Hole Organic Tea Bar is loc­ated at 146 Abercrombie St, Redfern NSW 2016.
