Sooooo much better than Jumpy Monkey (my first maté). The first whiff of this stuff in the bag reminds me of nail polish for some reason, but then the raspberries and chocolate kick in and it’s quite nice! It tastes like how I would imagine a good chocolate tea should taste like. Not overly sweet or fake-tasting chocolate, and I love how it works with the maté. The raspberries are nice but they don’t seem to last through a second steeping. Overall, I will definitely keep this around for when I work evening and graveyard shifts. Just enough kick to get me through the night, since coffee (my love) dehydrates the hell out of me when I work nights (for some reason).
