drank Chocolate Mate Chai by Rishi Tea
4825 tasting notes

This is a tea that I was skeptical about – ok, ok, I admit it, I was afraid of this tea.

I am not crazy about pu-erh. That being said, I have tried a couple of pu-erh teas that I’ve liked alright – but, for the most part… I have a hard time getting past that distinctive earthy quality that pu-erh possesses. In a blend with mate which is also quite earthy… yeah, I was afraid to try it.

But… I’ll give it a chance.

Wow! This is actually really good. The chocolate is smooth and rich. The chai is not over-the-top spicy but I like how the masala spices come across in this blend. It doesn’t taste earthy at all. I love the coconut and the chocolate in this blend – they are the strongest flavors here. A different but tasty chai.

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. If you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
