drank Malted ChocoMaté by 52teas
464 tasting notes

Despite not doing anything at all today, (no class or work scheduled on a Tuesday.. plus, there’s a bunch of snow outside) I’m hitting the afternoon slump. I’ve already had a nice cup of coffee, but I could use another boost at the moment. This is one of the first teas that I ever wanted from 52Teas. Dry leaf smells like chocolate, with hints of banana and sweet grass. While steeping, I’m smelling more of the sweet grass with just a little bit of chocolate.
The taste is quite interesting. It’s very smooth and sweet and I can taste the chocolate. I was expecting the chocolate to be a bit stronger and creamier. Sadly, I don’t taste any malt! This is definitely very tasty. I will have to try the honeybush version of this tea. I think I might like that one even more if it’s creamier and with more chocolate flavor!
