drank Malted ChocoMaté by 52teas
47 tasting notes

I was hesitant to try 52 Teas because I’m rather conservative when it comes to flavored tea and their blends sounded too complicated or exotic. So it’s rather strange that I ordered this, especially considering that I’ve never had mate before. But chocolate and malt, those two can’t go bad, I thought, so I gave it a try.

And I’m happy I did. I opened the pouch and immediately smelled rich chocolate with a hint of malt, mixed with the mint (not exactly mint, but a distinct refreshing scent that I think comes from the mate). I’m sure this is great straight, which I will try perhaps tomorrow, but today I enjoyed it with milk and sugar. It has a lot of flavor but doesn’t get too heavy because of the mate base. I made a big mug-full so I left a bit to chill to see how it’d taste iced, and it’s very good. I can see myself making iced tea latte or shake with this one.

This is my favorite tea at the moment, but I’ll see how I like it straight and if it’s still as good as the first time after several more tries. As of right now, I would love it added to the permanent collection, esp. 52 Teas has yet to add a yerba mate!

I have only once been disappointed w/ 52teas’ blends. I have yet to try matcha but this is absolutely on my “must get” list!=D

It was pretty good! I think it’s something you can drink even if you don’t like mate… I have yet to try plain yerba mate, but you can kinda imagine the flavor.

I can’t wait for mine to get here!!!! I’m so eager to try this tea :-)

Gander

I hope you like it. I think it’s really good with milk and sugar, and it’s also good cold. I really want to make a shake out of this but it’s kinda cold here…

Cofftea

I hear ya Gander. Unfortunately my tastebuds know no temperature.

My tastebuds know no temperature but my feet say otherwise. My apartment has poor heating… Guh. Drinking something cold outside is one thing, but to sit at your apartment hugging a space heater while drinking something cold is… somewhat pathetic! Haha. So hey, maybe I should make it, just drink outside!

Cofftea

Hey are you calling me pathetic? lol =D Many times have I drank something cold or eaten frozen yogurt wrapped in a blanket… or drank hot tea when it was so warm in the house I thought I’d pass out.
