Haven’t had this one in a long time but I thought with a 4:30PM to 1:00AM (although we finished an hour early…) shift it’d probably be a good idea to bring a mate to get me through it. I’ve had all my other mate blends more recently so this one jumped out at me more so than the others.

I’m glad I made it again; it reminded me just how tasty this one is which is good because I was starting to think of it as something that would be a pain to finish off and now I remember that I don’t want it finished off! I want this one stocked! It’s delicious! This is why I should drink older blends more often; when I neglect things I forget just how good they are!

Basically it was like a rich, slightly earthy cup of hot chocolate with a shot of raspberry syrup in it: indulgent and divine! I’m so happy I’m at a point in my cupboard where I feel comfortable revisiting old favourites (although with the recent arrival of the SSTTB that might take a back seat for a short while). Mmm Chocolate Rocket!

Flavors: Almond, Coffee, Dark Chocolate, Earth, Raspberry

Hello;

My name is Kelly. I’m a barely twenty tea drinker and reviewer living in Saskatchablah, Canada. I started drinking loose leaf fairly casually a little over a year ago, and at some point between then and now that ‘fun little hobby’ turned into a serious, serious obsession.

Typically I drink flavoured blends more that straight but one of my mini goals this year is to get that ratio to a more 50/50 level. I do a daily cold brew, and have at least (but usually a lot more) two hot cups of tea every day. Naturally I lean towards black or white blends, but I WILL drink everything; the last half year or so I’ve been challenging myself by further exploring Oolong and Pu’Erh which are the tea types I know the least about overall.

My default for preparation is Western Style with zero additives (the exception being matcha which I drink in milk with no additives); so unless I mention otherwise you can assume that’s how I’ve prepared my tea!

Favourite flavours/ingredients: Pear, Lychee, Cranberry, Cream, Melon, Pineapple, Malt, Roasty

Least favourite flavours/ingredients:
Lemongrass, ginger/“Chai” in general, raisins, overly vegetal, chamomile

I also have a severe allergy to mushrooms; as such I do not drink Kombucha teas!

Currently exploring/looking to try: Straight Pu’Erh or Dark/Roasted Oolong, Sweet Potato flavoured blends.

Location

Saskatoon, SK, Canada
