What?? How did I not review my favorite tea?
I just came on Steepster to just add how much I love this tea, even though I reviewed it already.. but apparently I didn’t review it.
I first came across this tea and got a measly 30g and loved it. I saved it for long crappy days I’d have at work. I saved the last scoop and drank it in the airport after dealing with stress with immigration and moving into a new country.
In my recent DT’s order I got 100g of this tea. I missed it so much.
DRY: I don’t want to go down and fetch my tin to see how it smells because I’m just going to brew more. I don’t need more, I want to savor this cup. It smells good though. Trust me.
STEEPED: smells chocolately, roastedly smell with a hint of sweet. A brown amber colour brew.
TASTE: mild chocolate – very different than the earthy thick chocolate you get in black tea blends. After that, there is a wonderful balanced mix of a roasted taste (not spicy).. the almond or the mate? Then as it goes down, it tastes sweet with a hint of raspberry.
The tea is overall light and easy to drink, but also full of flavour. There is no bitterness.
RECOMMENDATIONS: If you want something different. You want a morning/afternoon tea to get you through the day – this tea will keep you up at night from the mate. It’s not your typical chocolate black tea. It is only mildly fruity, so some fruit tea peeps might not be 100% into it. Tea lovers who dislike bitterness of black and greens would love Chocolate Rocket. If you’ve tried mate and didn’t like it, give this one a sampling.
COMMENTS: Love this tea. I felt crappy that I ran out of this tea and complained to my husband that I want to order more. This is the best mate tea I’ve had.
This tea I’ve added to my permanent collection – please keep selling it DT, as I will be buying more when I run out!
