Boss Banana Bread

What could be better than banana bread and tea? How about tea IN your banana bread? You can’t believe how good this is until you try it! This recipe uses Rooibos (roy-boss) tea but be adventurous! What about Dark Chocolate black tea, or Moonlight Grey? Oooh – what about Huckleberry creme? I think it would make an incredible banana-berry bread if you used our Raspberry Splash Rooibos with maybe cinnamon and cardamom for spices? I’ll be trying all sorts of combinations – let us know if you find one you love!
