Wow oh wow wowie! Can I just say that this tea makes me feel all warm and cozy inside? I love the chocolate/raspberry/almond blend and the chicory adds a depth of flavor that is more robust like coffee, without being coffee. I only had a small amount of it to try, but I will repurchase, and I’ll see how the mate is in terms of energy. This is my first mate tea, and I didn’t really pay attention to my energy when I had it before…I just adored the taste, and it is really good with vanilla soy or almond milk. I plan to buy a Timolino travel mug/infuser and try taking this to work and see how it goes. Oh, and for the record, this blend is similar to Love Potion #7 (I think that’s what it is called) and I actually like this better, for the sake of the almonds and chicory adding an extra dimension of flavour.
