Delicious creamy banana chocolate flavor January 19, 2015


Hartford, CT

I tried many of the chocolate tea flavors by purchasing the variety pack, and this was definitely one of my favorites. Since these are chocolate teas, they are not going to be as thick and rich as actual hot chocolate. However, the banana flavor added a smoothness that made it seem creamier and richer than the others, and brought out the chocolate a bit more. I found that I liked to drink this mixed with some warmed-up milk and just a tiny bit of sweeter (I use 2 drops of liquid stevia).

Heaven October 12, 2014


Lancaster, PA

This was the first of the chocolate teas I tried. I was skeptical at first but the aroma from the can was wonderful. The flavor was great but something was missing. I put in a little bit of cream and sugar - OH WOW - When I say heaven I mean HEAVEN. It turned into the flavor of Banana Cream Pie. With this and the Yerba Mate Latte I don't need a candy bar.

Outstanding! July 29, 2014


Schell City, MO

This tea is exquisite! The blend of banana and chocolate is surprisingly wonderful. It's so good it makes me think I should be getting calories, and, with the splash of half-and-half I put in it, I guess I am.

Perkasie, PA

Love this tea! I'm not really a tea person but this really hits the spot. I have it at work at least once a day. I just put one splenda in it and it's perfect. I like things super sweet!

It surprised me, it was very good! July 04, 2014


Medford, OR

I love all kinds of flavored teas, but was hesitant at this combo. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. The banana is not too overwhelming, just right, with that hint of chocolate. My favorite is to make this hot, with just a touch of stevia and cream. But my husband actually loves it cold, with just stevia. He makes it by the gallon! We have many many different teas from Republic of Tea, and use stevia in them all. The best non-bitter kind we found is from NOW brand called Better Stevia Extract Powder. No additives, only takes the tiniest bit.

This banana/chocolate combination is quite tasty. If there is anything missing, I would say that I get more of the chocolate flavor than banana. In any event, enjoy!

I was really surprised because this does taste just like chocolate bananas. While it's not a flavor I want all the time, it's a great desert tea, nice to sip after supper, relaxing from a hard day.

perfection in a cup March 01, 2014


kanab, UT

I was hesitant about this one, but the reviews were all very positive. I am not super fond of banana flavor, but I decided to try anyhow (bc I LOVE chocolate). This tea is perfection. It's not too banana-y but just right. The chocolate hints are amazing. I love this!

Great cup of tea January 07, 2014


Fort Drum, NY

My husband and I are tea lovers so I bought 15 canisters as a Christmas gift. So far this one is my favorite. My husband is a tea purist and prefers a blend that is not too fussy but he found the banana chocolate tea to be delightful. This is a keeper for our home.

Great Stress Reliever October 30, 2013


Buffalo, NY

This is a great tea. When I have a really rough day, I add a bit of Kahlua to this tea instead of sugar and it is amazing. Makes for a great hot toddy.

Oh my goodness, gracious, sakes alive ... is this ever DIVINE! With THE REPUBLIC OF TEA, you can be assured of true and pleasing flavors in all of their selections. This BANANA CHOCOLATE is no exception! SO WONDERFUL in replacement of desserts! Served hot with a bit of sweetener and milk? WOW! 5 TEAPOT RATING - MOST CERTAINLY !!! TRULY A WONDERFUL, PLEASING, DELECTABLE DESSERT TEA, right along with two of my other ABSOLUTE FAVORITES you must know about ...RED TEA: POMEGRANATE VANILLA and ...COCONUT COCOA. WHOAH - I HIGHLY RECOMMEND! ENJOY!

So very perfect... May 20, 2013


Beaverton, OR

A perfect balance...was so excited to see more rooibos options in stores (my health problems make it difficult to drink other teas). I find the chocolate is the first strong taste, but that banana comes in and it just makes me swoon. Perfect with sugar and a little milk. My new favorite dessert tea.

My kids love it March 23, 2013


Vancouver, BC

I bought this one for my son for his Christmas stocking. He has kept the tin in his room so it won't all disappear. We all like it a lot, usually with a bit of natural sugar and a dash of milk after school, at bed time or while reading on a lazy day.

Eastsound, WA

I was torn....chocolate banana or chocolate mint. So I got both. Chocolate banana was okay but just didn't get me jazzed. So I will finish the container but probably won't keep buying it. Try it...you might disagree with me.

Add Milk! November 01, 2012



This really grows on you. Very smooth and yummy. But when it's done steeping, take out the bag and add a splash of milk. That really sends this tea over the edge :) I feel it is a little boring without the milk. I add milk to the strawberry chocolate tea as well.

Fantastic October 27, 2012

I had already tried the other chocolate teas & loved them. I do, however, believe that this one is my favorite. Normally, I always want something to nibble on with my teas, but not with this one.

Just OK September 25, 2012



I love anything chocolate and was skeptical in purchasing a "chocolate" flavored tea. I have to say I'm not in love with it, but I don't hate it either. It won't be the first thing I reach for in my cabinet, but it is a nice change once in a while.

Comforting Bedtime Cuppa September 15, 2012


Fond du Lac, WI

The flavors are perfectly blended; neither is overpowering. Definitely not too sweet, it has a rich flavor without being heavy. Even without milk there is a "body" to the tea that is satisfying. I love to have a cup before bed. The tea bag sits in a dish on my nightstand, wafting the yummy smell during the night.

FANTASTIC tea!!! September 09, 2012


Bremerton, WA

I saw this tea and it immediately reminded me of the banana hot chocolate I could get from the vending machines in Japan. Hmmm ... I thought. I wonder if it would taste the same ... I'm hear to tell ya that it does have the same FANTASTIC taste! The first taste to hit the taste buds is the banana followed immediately after by the taste of sweet chocolate. What makes it all the better is that it is calorie free rooibos tea with all the benefits of anxioxidants. I definitely give this tea a 5 teapots rating!

I've died and gone to banana chocolate heaven August 29, 2012


Ojai, CA

Now I don't consider myself much of a tea connoisseur, but I can say with absolute confidence that this is the best guilt-free guilty pleasure I've ever had the pleasure to drink. The decadent flavors are so good, it's almost like drinking a banana chocolate milkshake without the ice cream. I add a little bit of chocolate stevia to this tea and who'd know this taste-laden drink could be so flavor-filled, yet calorie-free. I also use the steeped tea as a liquid replacement in dessert recipes such as muffins and have even more guilt-free deliciousness. But you probably won't like it, so don't buy it and leave more for me!

Really smells like banana July 19, 2012


Sacramento, CA

We are fans of most things banana in our house. I love the Strawberry Chocolate so I thought we would enjoy this as well. This really smells like banana and is a very unique rooibos blend. I still prefer the Strawberry Chocolate or the Caramel Apple over this one.

Not sure... will try a few more times June 28, 2012


Los Angeles, CA

The banana scent is strong, similar to banana flavored candy. The flavor is more of a tea flavor. Hint of chocolate is very subtle. I'm not sure that I'm sold on the banana, but I've only tried it once. I'll try it a couple more times to see if it grows on me.

St. Louis, MO

This is what keeps me on track for my diet. I love this tea straight up and also love it with a tiny bit of skim milk. It smells like a banana split and gives you just enough of the flavor to be satisfied when that sweet craving hits. I took a tin to work and now have three co-workers hooked

That's very great tea. After I sipped it's spread banana flavor in my mouse. But it's a little weak chocolate flavor than I thought.

This is good tea, I decided to try it tonight with a "splash" of milk, and liked it even better. I have to say though that I would like more chocolate flavor and less raspberry flavor.

Banana? October 20, 2011


Alameda, CA

Who'd have thought that banana would make such a lovely flavoring for tea. Sweet(but not too sweet)and rich. Hope this will not be a limited edition offering.
