San Diego, CA

I am very fond of this tea. I love the smooth taste of banana and the subtle hints of coconut. The fragrance is amazing as well. It's a very soothing tea when I need to unwind at the end of the day. This one will definitely become part of my regulars.

Like you're on an island! Different and refreshing, good hot or cold. I found this at a local grocery store the first time, now I reorder it when I run out. Great banana and coconut flavors.

Amazingly natural! May 04, 2014


northwest, WA

I love mixing this with other flavors! However it's wonderful by itself. The banana flavor is strong enough to be enjoyed, yet natural not fake. Very smooth and no aftertaste. Try mixing with hibiscus coconut!

North Brunswick, NJ

This is a great tea to enjoy on those cool spring days, and with the temperature rising, it is wonderful over ice! The subtle notes of coconut take me to a day in the tropics....even if only for a few minutes.

This tea is so comforting. It relaxes you and sends you to a tropical paradise. It has a smooth soft plantain flavor with a light hint of coconut. It smells and tastes great!I think it is a great pairing of the two flavors.

Scotch Plains, NJ

This is such a mellow flavor that sends me on a mini vacation. It's aromatherapy as well as a refreshing tropical drink. I had it when it was raw so I'm hoping that it tastes the same since they changed the name.

portland, OR

I have gotten so many people hooked on this tea! I always offer tea to my guests when they come over, so whenever someone asks for a recommendation from my 50+ assortment, I always go for this!

Creamy deliciousness November 25, 2013


Gravette, AR

Perfect blend of the tropics. Even if not a fan of coconut or banana, this is a must try. When you have a sweet tooth, a dash of sweetened cream is the perfect touch.

Great combination and caffeine free! October 25, 2013

Gwen Ebner

When I had to stop caffeine, I looked for a tea that would replace my green tea fix. This is a great option. The green rooibos reminds me of my green tea and the coconut and banana combination is very delightful. This is definitely one of my favorites now! I'm glad its caffeine-free!

Amazing August 16, 2013


Louisville, KY

This tea is very good and exceeded my expenctations. I thought it may have an artifical flavor like something with banana but it is a geat combo of coconut, banana, and tropical flavors. I will be getting this again.

Had this for the first time at the local coffee shop. I am now going to buy it by the case. It was by far some of the best flavored tea I have enjoyed in a long time. Reminds me of tropical paradise.

Too much YES for one cup... March 15, 2013


Tempe, AZ

This tea is incredible. I love it hot or cold, the sweet and tropical flavor combination of plantain and coconut is offset perfectly by the mellow calm of raw rooibos. Not to mention, the health benefits of raw rooibos are so immense that I've begun swearing by it. I know they tout "sip by sip" here, but holy moley... this tea gets gulped and gulped and gulped. Yum!

I'm on a tropical island!!! February 08, 2013


Glen Oaks, NY

I feel like I'm on a tropical island when drinking this tea. It's delicious! Very warm & wonderful. The flavor of the coconut & the plantains play really well together with the green rooibos. Wonderfully blended tea! Love it!

Surprised September 18, 2012


Phx, AZ

I can not stand the artificial flavor of banana. That being said, I have NO idea what possessed me to buy this tea, almost sent it back w/out tasting....& what a mistake that would have been!!! The flavor is true plantain, not fake banana & how it's blended w/coconut, genius!!!

This is definitely one of the lighter tasting green rooibos teas available, but it is still good. The plantain/coconut flavor does not taste artificial at all, and is perfect when you're looking for something that's light and delicious without being weak. I only give it 4 teapots because compared to the other 2 green rooibos teas that I've tried (Mango Chili/Black Currant Cardamom) this one is my last choice. It is a good flavor to have in the cupboard though, and like I said it is the one you want if you enjoy the lighter flavor notes.

Newton, NJ

This was earthy and flavorful. The coconut wasn't too strong or fake-tasting, which can be a problem with coconut flavored teas. I wanted more plantain though. Or maybe I just really wanted the plantain to taste like banana. Overall quite good.

excellent choice February 07, 2012


valpo, IN

I really wasn't sure I was going to like this tea, since I don't usually like red rooibos. I was very pleasantly surprised. I love the smooth, mild flavor of the green rooibos and the coconut and sweet plantain. Don't let the big hit of coconut fool you when you open the canister, it's just right, not cloying or fake tasting. I added a bit of wildflower honey and it was divine. I can't wait to try it over ice. Even if you're on the fence, give it a try, I'm very glad I did.

Houston, TX

This is my favorite even though all of the Republic of Tea teas are wonderful! It is sweet without needing sugar and has hints of coconut and banana that make it very refreshing. I make pitchers of cold tea every week!

Terrific Slightly Sweet Tea January 28, 2012


Port Townsend, WA

I love this tea! I have ordered it 4 or 5 times now and it is terrific hot or cold, sweetened or not. The sweet hint of plantain evens out the slightly bitter but terrific coconut flavor. This is truly my favorite tea.

Excellent Coconut Flavor January 22, 2012


Tucson, AZ

I didn't think I liked rooibos, and I didn't think I would like plantain in my tea... but I received this for Christmas and it's turning out to be one of my absolute favorite teas. I love coconut, and the subtle banana flavor pairs surprisingly well with it. I always sweeten it with a packet of Splenda, but that's just because I like my tea sweet.
