Today I used this to make my first latte ever! It was exciting, although I’m quite certain I screwed it up. It’s milky, chocolatey, cinnamony, and it has that roasty mate taste. It does leave a dusty feeling in my mouth that I’m not accustomed to.

I heated the milk and water combo on my stovetop and when it was bubbling I added my entire 25 gram package and turned off the heat. I left it for 5 minutes, but when I strained it, I noticed that there were still quite a few chocolate chips that had not completely melted. I don’t think that’s what’s supposed to happen. I don’t know? Have you made this? Did your chocolate chips melt away?

It tasted alright, but I think there must be a better way to make this so that the chocolate chips melt completely. I feel tempted to read up on this and give it another go, but I shouldn’t be drinking it in the first place because I’m lactose intolerant, mildly allergic to soy and caffeine sensitive. It was an impulse buy. So far I’m not experiencing any of the self-inflicted symptoms, fingers-crossed that it stays that way.

I tend to stir mine, and I only use a couple spoons of tea for 16oz milk/water. Haven’t had any problems with the chips not melting. Good luck with that. Maybe try coconut milk next time?

I hope you don’t feel sick over this! I’m not a fan of anything latté. But I remember trying a sample of this tea when it came out, are you sure those little nuggets are chocolate chips? As I remember, this blend looked very strange, and nothing resembled maté in it.

@OMGsrsly – hmmm…maybe I had the proportions a bit off
@TheTeaFairy – I was lucky that time, and didn’t have any problems other than some mildly itchy bumps on my arm that went away after a few hours. As for the nuggets, it turned out that there were a lot fewer unmelted chips in there than I originally thought. I didn’t realize how unusual this blend looked until I was throwing away the used bits.

I was actually thinking I should try adding 25g to a pot of milk and water, but I’ve already prepackaged mine into ~6g bags. I did 4 bags per 25g pouch. :)

Wow that’s organized! I just cracked open the sample and dumped it in – lol

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
