Okay, okay… so I rated this before saying I didn’t care for it. Maybe I was doing something wrong or maybe it’s just grown on me, but I’ve come to really like this mate. I think I may have been brewing it too strong before to try to enhance the chocolate flavor, and instead making it too harsh. It’s not as chocolate-y as I was hoping, true, but it is chocolate-y and caffeinated—a great combination! Pity I gave most of it away! Guess I’ll just have to get some more.

Profile

Bio

Wage slave, artist, crazy cat lady, and all-around slob.

A lifelong soda addict, I am in the process of changing my drinking habits from over a 2-liter bottle of sugary soda per day to maybe a can or two of Coke Zero and lots of tea per day instead. As such, I tend to enjoy teas that are naturally a bit sweet and not at all bitter, which (so far) means that I’ve had more luck with herbal and rooibos blends than with traditional black teas.

I’m trying different teas to expand my selection and knowledge, and I think that Steepster is going to be a great resource for me to keep up with what I’ve tried and what’s out there.
