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 got this in a swap, pretty sure it came from Will work for tea (i need to log this stuff at home so I remember)

I’m always leary about mate blends because I have not enjoyed any so far. The dry leaves do smell chocolatey, which is fabulous! The steeped notes smell just like mate :/ ergh not good

Nope, this is yummy! It’s definetly milkshake chocolatey, not just chocolate. And it is slightly malty. But mostly chocolate milkshake. I don’t really taste the mate, but that is probably what is giving this the slight malt taste.

I tried this one again today, having not touched it for two months and completely forgetting what it tasted like. This time I brewed it at a lower temperature and let it sit longer, and there was definitely some chocolate notes to it. The tea still didn’t wow me, though, so it is off to a better home.

I was excited for this tea, because I have another chocolate mate that I love (Republic of Tea’s double dark chocolate mate.) I was expecting this to be similar, but with the added malt notes. The leaves didn’t smell very chocolatey to me – they mostly smelled like malt and a bit of mate. I steeped 6 minutes at boiling, having read that it needed a bit longer than some teas.

Sadly, I don’t get any chocolate from this at all. I get a taste that is oddly like musty raisins. I know, that’s weird. I may not like the taste of malt, since I know I like mate. But I’ve been under the weather, so I’ll avoid rating until I can try it again!

try steeping it for 10 minutes or longer at a slightly lower temperature (200 degrees instead of 212) … Mate doesn’t get bitter like tea from long brew times.

stitchywitch

Thanks – I’ll be sure to try that! I’m pretty new to mate, so I wasn’t entirely certain. I hope it works!

2 TB in a mate gourd (maybe 125 mL of water) half a packet of stevia, no milk.

Innnnnnnn-tense. I love roasted mate drunk with groud and bombilla: very rich and concentrated. Roasted mate with malt and cocoa: YUM. Definitely for slow sipping. Some bitterness, some — oddly enough — distant banana flavour, and some distant mint/green/vegetal flavour that I normally only detect on green mate. Some pipe toboacco scent, too. Yum to the E. Can’t wait to try this brewed as a tisane to compare. Maybe tomorrow. Not sure my body can handle much more mateine/caffeine right now.

67 is the rating for the tisane version. The gourd-n-bombilla brew earned a 97, I think.

This tea smells great. Lisbet sent me a sample of this one and I could smell chocolate when I opened my mailbox. I’m not a fan of Yerba Mate, so I was a little scared to try it. I brewed it for a long time… I was working and lost track of how long it brewed. It wasn’t as dark as I expected, but still smelled really good. I got chocolate flavor, but didn’t taste much of the malt. I liked it ok, but the Yerba Mate flavor was still there in the background (for those of you who like Yerba Mate, I suppose this is a good thing). Yerba Mate to me tastes like hay and cow fields and I did get a smidge of this flavor in this tea. It’s better than I expected, but probably not something I’ll order.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more
Lisbet

Yeah, I only kinda like this stuff… I think. I like it better with steamed vanilla soy milk. But I definitely won’t order it. I got the pouch as a freebie on here!

Kristin

How do you like this one in comparison to the “You put the lime in the…” Yerba Mate? I still need to try that one but now I am a little worried.

Lisbet

I like it better when I drink it as an iced tea, but there is an undertone to it that may be what bothers you about the ChocoMate (which also tastes nothing like malt to me)

Kristin

I loved the Vanilla Cheesecake Chai, btw.

Lisbet

Oh I totally do too. Good reminder to drink that one today.

I have lots of backlogging to do!
I think I accidentally over steeped this. I even set a timer but then I got busy and didn’t hear it go off. So, I am not going to rate it at this time, because it isn’t a fair assessment of the tea. It was a big caffeine kick though. I am getting mostly the mate base with slight hints of chocolate and malt though…. Promising

Used 1.25 tablespoons for ~375ml of water.

The brewed liquor has a very rich malted scent that I was not expecting from the scent of the dry leaf. The scent brings Milk Oolong to mind for some reason.

Sweetness throughout. Light chocolate flavour. Hints of malted taste closer to the end of the sip. I find the mate a little overpowering and it doesn’t seem to compliment the flavour profile. The different flavors seem to be delicious on their own but seem to be out of balance for me. Overall, thin-tasting- very much unlike the flavour profile expected from the scent. The aftertaste has a rich chocolate malty flavour, especially on the exhale.

Many thanks to Kittenna for sharing this with me!

This one just taste like dirty water to me very sad not sure if I have ever had mate before and if it has more of an earthy flavor ? But this is not my cup of tea :( very sad
Thank you dinosara for sending this to me so I can try it!

LiberTEAS

How long did you steep it for? With Mate you can steep it for a long time – 10 minutes or even longer without bitterness. I do recommend a slightly lower temperature, around 195 degrees F.

LiberTEAS

By the way, yes, Mate does have an earthy flavor, but, I am surprised that earthy is all you tasted in this.

momo

I didn’t get much chocolate in this one either even with a really long steep. With a bit of milk and sugar it’s a bit better though. I’m not sure what temp I used but I steeped it for a long time.

Sare

i dont know whats going on Im going to change the water in my hotpot i used the water from the fridge which is not normally used, cues idk if there was remaining in it but when i made my fav dragon pearls it tasted the same so my thoughts went to water… So i will try this again with a clean fresh pot

Finally some tea! I had a dentist appt this morning so I’m just now having my 1st cup. From Ricky! Also my 1st mate… I really need to try my best to start trying the base of teas before a flavored version, it’d make reviewing a tea a heck of a lot easier.

Whoa! The raw “leaf” smells really chocolatey! Definitely a “I gotta grab my spoon!” tisane. But… unfortunately the aroma of the decanted tea loses some of that. It still tastes like chocolate, but now there are also notes of roasty and spicyness.

I was really hoping this would be like liquid chocolate as others have described, but I’m not getting it. The roastyness and weird spicyness are taking away from the chocolate.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec
Cofftea

2nd infusion, 6 min. Lighter liquor. Definitely a sweet infusion, but I don’t think I can calll it chocolate. No malt. The roastyness and weird spicyness are pretty much gone.

Ricky

For liquid chocolate, add milk and sugar =]

Otherwise, it’s like cocoa tea.

Cofftea

Nah… not even that…

Miss Sweet

This is one of the 52teas blends I’m most curious to try, mostly because of the malty part. And I’m not a fan of plain mate roasted or unroasted at all, its definitely one of those things I need to always drink with flavours added!

Cofftea

No malt flavor… the roastyness covers it. I think it’d be better unroasted.

Cofftea

3rd infusion, 7 min. Lighter liquor, almost identical taste.

I just tried this as a hot tea latte here at our shop. O M G! It was like pure liquid chocolate. The malt flavoring really amped up the chocolate. Our organic cacao nibs and natural dark chocolate flavoring can make our chocolate teas a tiny bit on the bitter side. A good, chocolatey bitter, like really dark chocolate, but a bit bitter nonetheless. But with the malted milk flavor (also all natural) added to it, the chocolate just comes to life.

I’m thinking of the chocolate river in the Willy Wonka movie and thinking it couldn’t taste much better than this tea with a little cream and sugar. Absolutely amazing!

Erin

I received some of this in a swap and loved it so much that I just ordered some for myself! Now there are only 2 packages left for sale! LOVE this stuff!

52teas

I’m so glad you are enjoying it. I think we will PROBABLY end up reblending this one. Might end up in our permanent collection. It is very yummy.
