drank Malted ChocoMaté by 52teas
302 tasting notes

This tea smells great. Lisbet sent me a sample of this one and I could smell chocolate when I opened my mailbox. I’m not a fan of Yerba Mate, so I was a little scared to try it. I brewed it for a long time… I was working and lost track of how long it brewed. It wasn’t as dark as I expected, but still smelled really good. I got chocolate flavor, but didn’t taste much of the malt. I liked it ok, but the Yerba Mate flavor was still there in the background (for those of you who like Yerba Mate, I suppose this is a good thing). Yerba Mate to me tastes like hay and cow fields and I did get a smidge of this flavor in this tea. It’s better than I expected, but probably not something I’ll order.

Preparation

Yeah, I only kinda like this stuff… I think. I like it better with steamed vanilla soy milk. But I definitely won’t order it. I got the pouch as a freebie on here!

How do you like this one in comparison to the “You put the lime in the…” Yerba Mate? I still need to try that one but now I am a little worried.

Lisbet

I like it better when I drink it as an iced tea, but there is an undertone to it that may be what bothers you about the ChocoMate (which also tastes nothing like malt to me)

Kristin

I loved the Vanilla Cheesecake Chai, btw.

Lisbet

Oh I totally do too. Good reminder to drink that one today.
