drank Malted ChocoMaté by 52teas
78 tasting notes

Well I have tried mate before and was never really liking the aftertaste… to me it tastes like coffee bleh!

When I opened this pouch I could smell the chocolate and to me it smelled like milk chocolate. It also had a tanginess smell… maybe the malty flavoring. I brewed it for about 5 min. It was a great dark amber color beautiful to look at. I smelled it again and the chocolate was just a hint and it had more of the tanginess and maybe a hint of something green. I tasted it and to me it still tasted like coffee but with a hint of chocolate. It was very smooth and didn’t have the bitterness of coffee.

I tried to add a splash of milk in it and a bit of sugar and it tasted better but still to much coffee flavor for me. I drank the cup but I think that I might friend this to a family member or friend. It was better than the other mates that I have tried that I have tried though!

I would love to try this one if you are wanting to split it up. I added things to the swap thread in bigger amounts, or I’d be willing to send samples of anything if you are game.

I have been wanting to drink tea for about a year now. I love the idea of tea but I go through times when I don’t drink any…. I know that it is good for me but sometimes I just don’t make it. I think that finding a place like this will help me remember to drink happiness! I have really only tried Teavanna teas and have a whole cupboard full of them. I recently just bought a few teas from other companies and are waiting impatiently for them! :)

I tend to like fruity teas or spicy, sweet teas. I like them to have lots and lots of flavor. I am looking the ultimate chocolate tea and the ultimate coconut tea. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

This forum looks like such a friendly and warm place, I can’t wait to learn more and more about tea as well as enjoy all of the different kinds.
