I can’t say I’ve learned to love this one yet. I want to, because it looks great and smells pretty good (and mostly I want to experience its “jumpy” properties!). I haven’t been a fan of the mates I’ve tried, though.

This just tastes kind of bitter and rather woodsy to me, without much of the chocolate or almond. I think I need to try 1) steeping it for a shorter amount of time and 2) perhaps sweetening with a touch of stevia. It will be getting another chance.

I agree with you. I reall ywanted to like this one but all I taste when drinking it is earthy: no almond or chocolate. Perhaps I’m steeping it wrong (almost boiling water for 5 minutes)

Yeah, I don’t know. I haven’t been able to get it to work for me, but that goes for all mates. It’s so frustrating when it smells and sounds good!
