I heard this one really wakes you up, so this is what I tried from the DavidsTea store this morning. At first it tasted to me like a chocolate bubble gum, but not in a bad way- it was too natural to turn me off totally. Afterward I read the description and realized the “bubblegum” I was getting must be be because of the raspberry: I couldn’t quite place the raspberry taste and it was coming to me as a bubble gum- even after reading the description it still sort of is. In fact, the raspberry comes out to me more than the chocolate.
The chocolate and the chickory seem to be buddies in this one and it kind of comes of as a slightly burnt milk chocolate taste. Not bad, but not my favorite. I’m more of a dark chocolate kind of girl.
I didn’t taste the base at all. I haven’t had a straight mate, so I didn’t really know what to look for. Plus the other tastes were pretty strong, so even if I did know what to taste, I may not have been able to pick it up.

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
