Happy New Year!!
So I didn’t do anything but watch scary movies on NYE and now today is my Monday. I got a Sweet Indulgence box from Davids Tea and saw this little Chocolate Rocket. I wanted to try this first because it says it’s a stimulant and boy do I need the energy. Anyways, this is my first Mate, also, my last experience with Chocolate teas did not go so well….which is surprising, I still drink my coffee, and I was hoping I could find a replacement so I tried CocoBerry…yea…not so well.
Smelling it is divine, chocolate covered raspberries, with a hint of almond nuttiness and that chicory, mm that chicory reminds me of childhood, (New Orleans French Chicory Coffee) since I didn’t know how Mate’s work, I followed the instructions for this tea, and honestly tasting it I could probably steep it longer.
The tastes is really on point, chocolate covered raspberries!! The aftertaste is chicory, I think I like this! Wow, this is different, but good! Hmm I should try this latte style to add creaminess. I think I taste the mate, (remember this is my first mate) it’s very smooth.
Yes I found the perfect way to describe it, you know that candy Ferro Rocher, with the gold wrapper. Exactly like that nutty, rich chocolate, but yet if it had raspberry syrup, oh yes. I think I love this tea…
