Thanks to Kittena for this sample!
Peeeee-eeeew, does this ever have a scent to remember. Like dirty socks. Kindof like regular mate, and then with the addition of cocoa it turns kinda funky.
No matter, I don’t mind. My raspberry leaf smells worse sometimes and I get through that just fine :)
The taste is pretty good to. Not much chocolate, but there is some nice heat that I quite liked, and not a building heat either. It dissipated with each sip instead of getting stronger with each one. Odd though, adding just a few drops of agave really spiced up the cup!
Flaming Chocolate Mate
Ready for a bit of heat and a bit of sweet? How about a nice caffeine kick to boot? Here’s some roasted yerba mate blended with organic cacao nibs and cayenne pepper for a delicious, caffeinated kick in the mouth.
As always, this is a limited edition so don’t miss out.
