Very disappointing. As a person that loves hot peppers (and is quite fond of chocolate, too), I was eagerly awaiting trying this blend. For my first brew, I followed the instructions closely and was seriously surprised at how flavorless a tea it brewed. For my second attempt, I used over 3 teaspoons and steeped for longer than recommended, but still no luck. Still surprisingly bland and watery.

I’ll probably use the rest with the bit of MateVana I have left.

A delicious blend that is sweet enough on it own. Tastes reminiscent of an ice cream sundae.

This is probably the best tea blend available at Teavana. It has a nice, chocolaty sweetness that could convert even the most hardcore yerba-hater. Unfortunately, it is pretty pricey, too. I’ll be trying to make a home-spun version in the coming weeks.

Great light fruit taste that helps to cut mate’s sometimes bitter flavor.

This is my first time using instant mate in a few months and I made it a little too weak. Usually pretty great, though.
