I brewed this with boiling water for 10 minutes and then put the pitcher in the refrigerator to cool overnight. I am enjoying a thermos of it today.
I honestly didn’t know what to think of it the first time I had it. I’m still not sure if I love it or think it’s just really odd. I mean it tastes like hot pepper, chocolate mate. I’m on the fence about mate to begin with and hot pepper in my drink seems odd to me, but I can’t stop drinking it. It is super smooth and has a kick, but doesn’t get too spicy hot. In fact I think I might like the cayenne pepper.
