drank Malted ChocoMaté by 52teas
22 tasting notes

Yay, it came today! Tearing the bag open… Oh my. I can see the nibs and it smells like… Like a delicious artisan dark chocolate bar. I could barely wait for the water to heat. It steeps to a beautiful dark amber liquor. And the smell… Like melting chocolate, dark chocolate, with that faint hint of bittersweetness and the tang of the malt behind it.

Yet the taste is even better than the smell! I don’t know how these guys do it with these flavors, but the supporting base is so mellow and smooth. This reminds me faintly of Godiva liqueur, only not sweet. I’d go into overload if I actually put sugar in this. I seriously need to be alone with this. Bravo yet again.

(I have a KitchenAid mixer with attachments, and I think this spring, this would make some DAMNED incredible ice cream if I simmered it in the cream.)

I had the same reaction when I opened my package!:) Glad you liked your order as much as I did mine.

That ice cream idea sounds really good!

I thought of ice cream w/ the mayan chocolate chai. Yummm…

I have a couple of requests that we reblend this tea. Anyone else interested?

I normally don’t like malt, but I’d be definitely interested in giving it a try if the timing was right.

I like it, the malt was more of an afternote, not anything that blotted out other flavors.

Bio

Seattle dweller, photographer, writer, poet, and tea lover. Yes, it’s true. I can’t swim and hate coffee, so where do I live? Seattle! Share with me, people. Where’s the best places to go for tea in Seattle? Much more interesting than talking about my 2 big lazy cats or my love of the beach/boat locks. Or we could chat about tea while I enjoy my cooking…
