Mate Andale!

This was my first mate and it was out of this world, being loaded with cocoa, chocolate and cinnamon it should appeal to almost anyone. It was compared to a glass of hot chocolate spiked Mexican style with a butt load of cinnamon, this was an accurate description!

Dry this tea looks like a tin of hot chocolate mix, its loaded with cocoa to the point everything has a coating of cocoa on it, then there is tons of chocolate chips to reinforce the chocolate aspect. Now that I think about it I couldn’t even see any mate leaves in there! It has a strong cocoa and cinnamon smell that is prevalent throughout enjoying this beverage.

The final brew for this tea is dark and dirty looking because of all the cocoa, chocolate and cinnamon; however I assure you it will taste delicious. This beverage does not require any sweetener but it does drink a lot better with some milk, that just makes it really seem like a hot chocolate.

TIP: As advised by the girls at Davids I had to try this tea as a mate latte. I did and it was freaking amazing, so I am going to pass that tip along!

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
