This one smells amazing in the bag, sweet cocoa goodness all the way. I can’t say that follows through to the flavor though. At most I get a slight feel of cocoa more than a real taste of it. I keep taking drinks of this and I still can’t identify what it is I’m tasting – it’s not the roasted mate, and it’s not very chocolatey, but it’s still good? The body reminds me of coffee, it’s like a very smooth roast.
Okay, I’ve just gone and added a dash of chocolate soy milk to this cup, that improved things. I’d recommend this to coffee drinkers if you take it straight, it feels very similar to coffee but doesn’t quite have that bracing coffee flavor that made me turn to tea, haha. Worth a try if you’re trying to kill your Starbucks habit.
