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!

I need to try this with milk, so I can get a true idea of the malted part! Without dairy, it’s ok. A nice refreshing drink! Very light and airy.

ETA: The chocolate is a bit fake, I can feel it tingling on my tongue and I really don’t like that sensation. It’s a cumulative effect, and reminds me of how I feel after drinking coffee. Errr, it makes my mouth numb. Okayyyyy so I’ll be giving the rest of this away, or rather sending it back to it’s previous home!

Kittenna

It can come back to me, lol. The intent wasn’t to totally offload it unless someone loved it! I do enjoy it, just have too much :)

Enjoying a quick cup of grown-up hot chocolate before work this morning and taking the rest in my Thermos for a mid-day fix. I love the kick that mate gives and I hope that it is enough to keep me going on my first day back after Spring Break!

I love the smell of this one. I opened my cupboard this morning and was hit in the face with chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. I couldn’t help but make a cup to bring to class with me. It’s like healthy hot chocolate, especially if you add milk and sugar like I do. Too bad it’s so hot out because I don’t think this will be good iced. Oh well, I guess I’ll just wait until next year to enjoy this again! It certainly was a winter favorite.

Cofftea

“It’s like healthy hot chocolate, especially if you add milk and sugar”… How does that work? Milk I can see, sugar no to much. Now if you add stevia you have me sold on the health lol=D

Erin

just sweetener in general lol.

Lori

But, to defend sugar, the addition of a tad of sugar is still significantly less calories thana real hot chocolate…

Cofftea

Good point Lori. My tastebuds just don’t need it. And if I would want an unflavored sweetener, I’d go w/ stevia.

Erin

I usually just go with whatever is available – and today it was a partially empty sugar packet that my mother had left open on the counter.

I gently set the tea on the table to steep when my beloved looked up from his book (a rarity since he hardly ever notices me when he’s deep in a book), sniffed the air and said, “Chocolate tea?” It really does smell good, like good deep chocolate.

It tastes wonderful with a creamy, malted, chocolate, mocha taste and something slightly grassy. No bitterness. No astringency. No weird dusty taste. It’s a far cry from my yerba mate experiences of twenty years ago. (Those were the experiments that led me to swear never, ever, ever again to try yerba mate.) It’s quite nice. I can see using this as a base with ice and soy milk for a chocolate malt smoothie.

I absolutely agree with you. 52teas has come out with some really wonderfully flavorful and toothsome blends.

Cofftea

How does malt compare in taste to say genmai cha? Is it all in my head that they’d taste even close to being similar? If I’m completely insane just tell me lol. I already know I am:) Sometimes I have a hard time wrapping my head around things and malt in a tea is one of them.

Carolyn

It’s quite different. Genmaicha has more of a roasted popcorn taste and since it is a green tea, it has that as well. This has much more of a chocolate taste with a roundness provided by the malt. In genmaicha the roasted popcorn is front and center in the taste. in this tea, the malt is in a minor supporting role. It primarily makes the tea taste creamy and rich and gives the chocolate more of a chocolate taste.

Cofftea

Gotcha. I was basically wondering if malt and the toastyness of the rice were anything alike. I obviously know the mate and chocolate would make it taste vastly different.

Ricky

Sounds like a chocolate milkshake, minus the slightly grassiness. Is today 52teas tea day? Seems everyone’s having it.

Andrea in New Mexico

I am learning so much from these notes and the subsequent comments… It’s surely going to enrich and deepen my own experiences as I learn the vocabulary and the possibilities. Thanks, you guys. :-)

Carolyn

@Ricky A few weeks ago 52teas did a Steepster Select. My guess is that everyone’s tea has arrived and people are now sampling.

@Andrea I learn a great deal here as well which is good for my mind, great for my sensuality, and terrible for my pocketbook. ;)

Carolyn

@Cofftea I’ve thought about your question and I still think the answer is no. Malt has a very round, non-bitter, slightly sweet taste that becomes creamy when it interfaces with bitter things (like chocolate). The roasted rice grains have a slightly bitter, strongly roasted taste that becomes more bitter around bitter things. It is as if genmaicha is coffee and malt is vanilla-touched Cheerios.

Cofftea

Haha ok, thanks:)

Gander

Smoothie sounds like a good idea, I totally agree.

I guess this counts as a sip down. I divided up the rest of what I had amongst the Vancouver meet-up crew.

Dropped the rating because I’ve come to realize that I’m not the biggest fan of roasted mate, but this is still pretty darn good for a flavoured roasted mate and would recommend it to anyone who likes chocolatey stuff.

Dwindling down the stash is an ongoing struggle.

I think this must be the chocomate. It HAS to be because the other tumbler has Teajo’s Earl Grey in it and those are different animals.

I don’t know anything about this tea as I’m reviewing it ninja style at work, writing the text in a draft email that I’ll copy/paste from when I can pop online. It really reminds me of coffee. It’s dark and strong, and there are a few cocoa notes in there, as well as something like bark. It makes me feel like I should wake up! I haven’t hard much to eat/drink this morning besides tea so I’ll slow down on finishing this until I get some lunch, otherwise I have a feeling this will make me feel heady and dizzy.

Thank you Sil for the sample!

Oh and I can’t wait until next week when I get set up in my new office with my own computer and I won’t have to worry about people walking by and looking at me on the internet. Don’t get me wrong guys, I do work really hard. But I do it so that I can take mental breaks whenever I want them. 

YUM! I am in need of a caffeine infusion, so I thought Mate would help me!

So good! I have found that the longer you steep this, the better it tastes. I steeped this for 12 minutes and the flavor is very chocolate-y, malt-y and yummy! I don’t get a lot of the bitter flavor or the earthy flavor from Mate. Loving this!

Caitlin

You inspired me to how a cup of this :)

I think I’ll have this for my tea tomorrow morning!

I have been eyeing this one for such a long time! Well, I finally ordered it and when I opened the bag it smelled like chocolate ice cream! Mmm :] The smell of the steeped tea is so relaxing. I’m about to fall asleep so hopefully this mate will kick in! I love roasted mate and that’s mainly what I’m getting from this. The chocolate malt lingers in the aftertaste. It almost reminds me of warm rocky road ice cream. Mmmmmmmmm :]

I really like this one. For a while I was “meh” about mate, but this is really good!!!!

KallieBoo!

Mm I love mate! And I love this one too. If you liked this one you’d probably like Chocolate Vanilla Twist from Big Tea House :)

Babble

Ooooh, I’ve never even heard of that tea before but I’ll have to check it out. Thanks :)
