drank Malted ChocoMaté by 52teas
501 tasting notes

I was really hoping that this would be the tea that would make me like yerba mate. Really hoping. I should really know better by now not to let my hopes up like that, but I keep trying.

The dry tea smells like chocolate with a hint of something else, tobacco maybe? And after steeping, the tea smells like chocolate and malt and some yerba mate smell. The taste is strongly of the mate with some chocolate and a hint of malt in it. The combination is kind of a weird flavour and I can’t say I like it at all. Which is really too bad because I really really wanted to like this tea.

Bio

Single, vegetarian, asexual, 5 cats. Airplane Engineer. I drink most of my tea with a bit of sugar and all the ones with a black tea base with a little bit of milk too. I’m super sensitive to bitterness and spiciness so I tend to avoid those.

I am also a flavoured matcha latte fanatic.
