From 52teas

I had soooo much fun last week with the malted genmaicha, and after hearing several people ask why we didn’t make it a chocolate malt, I decided we should do a chocolate malt tea this week. Here it is, our Malted ChocoMaté!

This is roasted yerba mate with organic cacao nibs and all natural chocolate and malt flavors. It is one delicious energy kick!

Yum. I forgot how much I did actually like this one! I’d been put off it for a while thanks to a bad water experience, and of course, I already had bought my 8 oz. or so of it. Anyways, it was great in my travel mug, as expected, and will now be put into my morning travel mug rotation! Hopefully that will use a good bit of it up, since I’ve only successfully swapped out one 2 oz. package of it so far :(

Anyhow, I can’t recall if I’ve ever tried this sweetened with a bit of milk/cream, but I should. Malt just seems to scream out for that sort of thing. That said, it’s great plain, with enough sweetness to be quite enjoyable (which is why I stocked up on it in the first place!)

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Question, Kittenna – how strong is the malt in this one? I adore malt and chocolate together….!

Kittenna

I definitely feel like this tea is obviously malt, like malted chocolate malty. Less chocolate, IMO. You should give it a try!

Kittenna

*obviously malty. Thanks autocorrect.

made a half cup of tea, steeped about 9 min, iced it down, and stirred in about 3 scoops vanilla ice cream (too lazy to bother with blender). MMMM tastes very chocolatey and malty – I think the vanilla is bringing both out nicely.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
Cofftea

That sounds absofreakinlutely WONDERFUL!

Janefan

It was really very god. I’m sure it would be better if I’d been patient enough to cool the tea more, and maybe actually use the blender. I just had some ice cream to get rid of. Basically, it was a “tea float”. I’m going to try same concept next week with 52teas’ Pina Colada Honeybush and Ciao Bella Coconut Sorbet. mmm love them both, bet they will blend well!

Robert Godden

“very God”? One of the Aztec ones, perhaps !

Cofftea

Definitely gonna make a chai float when I get more Mayan Chocolate chai=D

Janefan

LOL thanks Robert, I meant very good!

Karsh

That does sound heavenly. Mm…now I want some Malted ChocoMate! traipses over to 52Teas

I’ve got maybe one more serving to go after this one. I will miss you malted chocomate. I was thinking of getting more, but I have decided that life (and money) is too short to go around repeating teas unless they are a particularly delicious Earl Grey (:P) Considering that basically every time I receive the 52teas newsletter I want what’s in it…it’s time to seize the day! or the tea! That’s right! (are you ready for it?

it’s gonna be bad…

better mentally prepare now….

I’ll give you a few more seconds…

ok, time’s up!)

Carpe Tea-em!

Cofftea

Awesome. Completely awesome.

Cinoi

Indeed.

I’m not sure I should be drinking this right now (slight stomachache) but I could NOT resist any longer!

The smell of the dry leaves in the bag is absolutely incredible, chocolate-y goodness. I did steep this at around 180 F (who knows what the optimal temperature for mate is?)

I really wanted the malted milk ball experience so I added soymilk and a touch of turbinado sugar to this. OMG! This is so good. I am really getting the chocolate here which is rare for me and chocolate teas. I’m also getting a hint of the malt and the whole thing is just melting into my mouth like a really yummy dessert. I hope I don’t go bouncing off the walls anytime soon due to all the caffeine in this. What a big spanking cup of yum! YUM! :)

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 7 min, 0 sec
Missy

I’ve noticed there are conflicting opinions about the steeping parameters for mate. I’ve tried different things but it doesn’t seem to make a huge difference so far. Let me know if you find any thing solid about it. :D

ScottTeaMan

LOL Amy! :)) Spanking cup-hahahahaa. Upton’s says 212 D for 8 min for roasted yerba mate, but when I tried it years ago, it seemed bitter for me at 212 for 5 min. If I had a cup tomorrow, I’d brew it between 180-190 and start at 4 minutes.

Missy

I’ve tried that temp. I think maybe my palate is untrained. I can’t find a notable difference between the two temps. Perhaps if I lower time, I will see a difference. I seem to get the same mate every time. Hehe, that may be a good thing since I like it.

Missy

Scott, I should point out I’ve found more steeping parameters in line with that you have said than the boiling for 5 minutes.

TeaBrat

The few I’ve had seem to be ok when they are steeped for 7-8 minutes but I’m not using boiling water…

I always wake up craving tea; less often craving a specific flavor. But CHOCOMATE was imprinted on the inside of my eyelids today. Needed a strong and obvious chocolate fix and this is the only tea that will do it speedily and efficiently.

Interestingly, I added 3 teaspoons of coconut milk, thinking I’d come up with a sort of latte thing, and it didn’t do much to affect the flavor either way.

DaisyChubb

Ohhh I love waking up with a craving! Sometimes it’s so hard to choose a tea in the morning. That said, nothing like waking up to a craving of a tea you’re out of~! O: Glad you had some ChocoMate to satisfy!

gmathis

Usually it’s just a groggy “must…have…hot…leaf…juice…”

DaisyChubb

the first and last semi-coherent thoughts of the day!

Sipdown! Finally worked my way through two bags of this stuff, and I’m ready for a break now. I do like having a mate to drink on a morning — I really think it helps to wake me up. I’ve got one more 52 Teas mate blend in my cupboard at the moment (Inscape, I believe) so I’ll have a little break from mate and then start that one. It’s strange, because at one point I didn’t think I’d be able to drink mate at all. The smell was just too weird. Flavoured, though, we get along fine. I’ve enjoyed this one, on the whole. I wouldn’t say I get “malt” from this so much, although maybe I’m just over familiar with it now. Definitely chocolate, though. Deep, dark chocolate. Not a sad sipdown, as I’ve had so much of it, but a fond farewell all the same!

Boiling 3 min, 45 sec

Lowering my rating for this one…I just can’t seem to get a consistent result with this. Sometimes it’s over the top delicious, but other times it’s a bit like a watered down coffee. Hmmm….maybe it’s something I’m doing wrong. In any case, I’m lowering my rating to make sure I don’t buy it again.

JustJames

that’s a good way to keep track! color coded for your convenience and everything, lol.

canadianadia

That’s true! Bonus :)

Woke up wanting Malted ChocoMate again yesterday morning after just having had it yesterday. Yes, I’m happy to have more of it! Today it was even more malty and delicious than yesterday. Don’t know what I did differently. But yum! I had the first cup with breakfast (buttered wheat cinnamon raisin toast and a berry Greek yogurt) and the second cup directly afterward.

2nd steep: 10 mins.

It’s definitely a crave-inducer, isn’t it?

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

Oh yes! I’m totally buying a pouch once I use up some plain dark roasted mate that I’ve been making faux chocomate out of with semi-sweet chips. I don’t drink mate often enough to support owning two kinds, but I wish I did so I could have this on hand.

This is another tea MissB dropped off tonight (yay!!!), and is the only reason I have not fallen asleep in my chair yet. Oh, it was so good. I just steeped it in water and had it plain. Yes, it’s quite thin, but I really liked the flavours. I made my BFF try it, and she liked it too. Might have to give her the rest of MissB’s sample, since I do have a reblend coming my way (again, through MissB. She’s amazing, yet SUCH an enabler.).

Thank you!

Flavors: Chocolate

Preparation
1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML
OMGsrsly

I used 1.5 tsp. Not 1.

MissB

Argh. I love the new features, however I can’t like?

So glad you’re getting use out of all of them! I knew you loved this, so I wanted to get you some while (I assumed) you were waiting for more in the reblend order. ;)

OMGsrsly

It’s so funny that my last note popped up and my rating was ‘:(’. :) This smells so good and is so delightfully caffeinated that I don’t mind the thin texture!

OMGsrsly

You have to click the teensy weensy heart. It’s working in my phone , haven’t tried a computer yet.

Sil

yeah heart clicking is harder now

MissB

Got it. Heart the click. Too tired for this precision work! ;)

Sil

ugh…tell me about it. just. want. to.sleep.
