I must admit, I was a bit nervous about this one. I had bad experiences in the past with maté teas, usually finding them overpowering and difficult to finish.
However Chocolate Rocket seemed to be the exception to this rule. It had very nice chocolate notes, but not to the point where it felt like I was drinking a tall mug of melted chocolate (which, for some, would be the greatest thing in the world). It was just the right amount of chocolate flavour.
The shorter steep time perhaps contributed to this factor. I’d imagine that if I were to steep it for a longer time the chocolate flavour would be more intense. I also did detect a slight fruitiness to the tea, which upon further investigation I discovered was raspberry. Again, just enough to lightly flavour the tea without being overpowering.
And since it’s maté, which means it’s a stimulant, this would be a great morning pick me up. Looking forward to trying it again.
