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!

Late night studying is much more enjoyable with a highly caffeinated beverage. Actually, it’s really only possible because of this highly caffeinated beverage.

Parameters: 2 tsp. leaf to 500 ml. water steeped at below temp/time. I added some half and half and sugar this time around because a.) I needed to use up the half and half, and b.) I need all the extra energy I can get. It’s a nice hearty chocolatey drink that is starting to work it’s magic quite well.

P.S. Also because of late-night studying I happened to get the email about the 52teas Christmas sampler and used my 10 minute self-imposed study break to update steepster and snag one. SO. EXCITED. TO PARTAKE. THIS YEAR.

sigh study break done…

I’m glad I decided to scroll back through the tea log. I never would have known about the 52teas sampler. Now I’m getting one. Does Snoopy dance

JoonSusanna

Yay! I didn’t try the sampler last year (I really got into tea in January, how’s that for crappy timing) so I have been waiting for this years to come out. I’m really excited for December!!!

Ninavampi

I am super excited about the sampler!!!! Can’t wait till December! : ) I hope I will have the patience to do it right (1 a day)!

JoonSusanna

@Ninavampi – I know – I have such an issue with patience! I’m the queen of impulsiveness so it should be an interesting exercise in self-control!

having it now with out sugar and the hint of banana is still there… I find it interesting that it wasn’t due to excess sugar

Cofftea

Banana? Blech. This tea makes me want the bombilla and gourd set;)

Madison Bartholemew

it actually a pleasant banana… not like a super banana tea… but it’s got to be something with the malt flavor and the mate together.
It really is pretty good though

I was hesitant to try 52 Teas because I’m rather conservative when it comes to flavored tea and their blends sounded too complicated or exotic. So it’s rather strange that I ordered this, especially considering that I’ve never had mate before. But chocolate and malt, those two can’t go bad, I thought, so I gave it a try.

And I’m happy I did. I opened the pouch and immediately smelled rich chocolate with a hint of malt, mixed with the mint (not exactly mint, but a distinct refreshing scent that I think comes from the mate). I’m sure this is great straight, which I will try perhaps tomorrow, but today I enjoyed it with milk and sugar. It has a lot of flavor but doesn’t get too heavy because of the mate base. I made a big mug-full so I left a bit to chill to see how it’d taste iced, and it’s very good. I can see myself making iced tea latte or shake with this one.

This is my favorite tea at the moment, but I’ll see how I like it straight and if it’s still as good as the first time after several more tries. As of right now, I would love it added to the permanent collection, esp. 52 Teas has yet to add a yerba mate!

Cofftea

I have only once been disappointed w/ 52teas’ blends. I have yet to try matcha but this is absolutely on my “must get” list!=D

Gander

It was pretty good! I think it’s something you can drink even if you don’t like mate… I have yet to try plain yerba mate, but you can kinda imagine the flavor.

Janefan

I can’t wait for mine to get here!!!! I’m so eager to try this tea :-)

Gander

I hope you like it. I think it’s really good with milk and sugar, and it’s also good cold. I really want to make a shake out of this but it’s kinda cold here…

Cofftea

I hear ya Gander. Unfortunately my tastebuds know no temperature.

Gander

My tastebuds know no temperature but my feet say otherwise. My apartment has poor heating… Guh. Drinking something cold outside is one thing, but to sit at your apartment hugging a space heater while drinking something cold is… somewhat pathetic! Haha. So hey, maybe I should make it, just drink outside!

Cofftea

Hey are you calling me pathetic? lol =D Many times have I drank something cold or eaten frozen yogurt wrapped in a blanket… or drank hot tea when it was so warm in the house I thought I’d pass out.

I had some of this from the Bestsellers sampler and some thanks to Dexter3657’s awesome package. Time to try it! I steeped this one a few minutes after boiling for four minutes. Tasty, but not special enough to me. The roasted yerba mate isn’t quite as barbequey as some yerba mates I’ve had, which is fine with me this time around. A nice chocolate flavor… the dry leaves smell a bit like alcohol though. A nice combination but it’s almost like it needs something more. Not malty enough to represent MALT. Not terrible but “bestseller” doesn’t mean the BEST of 52Teas lovely blends.

TheTeaFairy

I had forgotten I had this in the cupboard, think I’ll have it with breakfast tomorrow, I don’t remember if I like it or not :-0

Dexter

(I like it with a couple/5 chocolate chips tossed into the infuser, but that’s just me….)

TheTeaFairy

Ah! Dexter The Master Tea Mixer ;-)

caile

Chocolate chips!! :-D

Stephanie

I have to try the chocolate chip idea! Thanks!

Tea Sipper

Nice idea Dexter! And there are a billion chocolate chips around here for some reason so maybe I should add them to every tea. haha.

my oh my….. dark chocolate, roastiness, but not over the top. layers, very clever layers. i swear i taste a fruit layer that alternates! like a tea version of a the blue and red alternating of a binary star system only instead of coloured light flickering in a dark sky, it’s banana and strawberry in my tea cup. how striking. very subtle…. not so subtle that i think i’m crazy though. =0)

very, very nicely done 52teas! it will also serve nicely to boot my butt into gear for morning classes!! thank you very much!!!

Fruit layer, eh? I always get banana from roasted mate. It’s the weirdest thing! So our taste buds must interpret it in the same way.

JustJames

isn’t it nice to know you’re not bananas? (couldn’t resist). sometimes it’s distinctly banana, others it’s a something-berry.

CelebriTEA

Sounds like another interesting one ;-)

JustJames

it is, very much so. different tea companies represent different traits to me: verdant is elegantly purist, butiki is the best flavoured teas in the business, french teas…. are another universe, 52 teas is whimsy. frank, the owner, is a highly creative individual. i actually have to be careful how much of this one i have the caffeine is so strong, lol. malted chocolate milkshakes with cherry bananas. =0)

Yum, yum, Yum! I think will satisfy cravings for chocolate in the morning and wake my sleepy head up. Lovely chocolate, malt and that awesome roasted flavor are just perfect together. I get a hint of banana as well. Any one else taste that?

Preparation

DaisyChubb

Have you tried Chocolate Rocket from Davids? That has a hint of banana for me too so I wonder if it’s the mate itself?

Kittenna

I think it must be the mate…

Missy

@DaisyChubb No I have not tried that one yet.

I would agree except I have two other mates and neither has hints of banana. It may be this flavoring and mate combines for that banana taste.

Backlog from this morning:

I’ve been fighting “the crud” for a couple of days now…and I’m afraid it’s winning. Joy, Christmas Break and being sick.

When I opened this up, I was both disappointed and excited. Disappointed that it’s not new to me (I’ve got a pouch at home), but excited because it makes a great cup that’s soothing and will hopefully get me warmed up and feeling like myself again.

Just like I remember. And now to curl up with a blanket, my teapot, and the DVR (Dexter: last 3 episodes of the season!), and hope the sinus meeds kick in soon.

I finished the last three episodes of Dexter today as well. Wow did they have a close call. I like seeing Julia Stills in this role. Can’t wait for the next season to start.

ashmanra

I hope you feel better! Give yourself a break, enjoy doing whatever you want to do, and get well QUICK! :)

Jaime

Oh, I know! I couldn’t believe the end! I hope we see more of Julia next season.

Even though the instructions say to use boiling water I’ve heard that maté can get scalded and become bitter like green teas, so I kept the steeping temperature at 90ºC. The tea smelled so incredibly chocolatey when I opened the package, like one of those rich chocolate shakes you can sometimes still get at diners. I could see that cocoa nibs mixed in with the mate leaves aswell which is a good sign – I always like it when a company uses real ingredients instead of ‘flavouring’.

The first thing I can taste when I sip the tea is the mate; it has the roasted, nutty, and slightly vegetale flavour that is unique to that particular plant. But underneath there’s a creamy, malty flavour with a hint of sweetness that makes me think of Ovaltine a bit. The chocolate is there too but maybe not as a stong as I wished I was – although that might just mean that I need to steep it longer. The taste lingers subtly and pleasently in the mouth, not letting itself be dismissed.

This is a wonderful, unique blend that I really enjoyed drinking. Congrats to Frank for creating another winner.

Backlog. Lots of running around lately, doing that summer end, everything-decides-to-break-now, thing. Uhaul Victoria could be a little better at things.

Anyways, I’m loving Incendaire’s sample envelope. Everything is just the right size and makes it easy to choose something quick. I dumped this one into a David’s perfect mug, not expecting much and looking for a quick steep fix.

It was surprisingly nice to get something with such a syrupy, chocolatey finish. As it cooled the dessert-like sweetness increased. Not a bad flavoured maté at all! Thanks Incendaire!

I’m glad you enjoyed this! I would love to give you more but I divided up the last of what I had amongst everyone. This one almost reminds me of a Rolo or something. :)

Sorry for the all the crazy breakage. Not what you need when class is just around the corner.

CrowKettle

Thanks for the consideration! It does taste like it has some kind of syrup filling. :)

I had no steeping parameters and it tastes a little weak using 1 perfect scoop, 4 minutes and near boiling water. I couldn’t find any info on the website. Why? Although it is fun to get cheeky with the description of the tea perhaps the powers that be should also bother to give some sort of steeping suggestions. After all, you are catering to the new tea drinker perhaps more so than the experienced one. End of rant.

Having said all that the tea itself is tasty. I’m sitting here drinking it instead of getting ready for work tasty. If I find enough 52teas appealing to me I could place an order and then yes, I would include this. Although, I don’t know how I feel about the “once it’s gone, it’s gone so don’t fall in love” part.

Thank you Sil for this sample!
