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’ve decided I’m going to make it a 52teas/mysweethoneybush/man teas week-end .. So after a breakfast of Monkey Fart, I moved on to Malted ChocoMate for my after-lunch/noon-time beverage ..

I’m writing this after my third cup .. The first was drunk with a dash of milk; the second a teaspoon of sugar (no milk); and the third had both, which is definitely how I prefer it .. Oh and the third was made with all fresh leaves as someone had cleaned out my teapot .. Unfortunately I just couldn’t appreciate it without something extra to boost the flavour ..

I think I’m in the minority on this one, but I find there’s no-where near as much chocolate as I would like .. And the malt, while more obvious as it cooled off, was actually more of an after-taste ..

It smells fantastic both dry and in the cup, but I’m afraid it just isn’t delivering what I expected, or more importantly what I was wanting from it ..

Mrawlins2 shared this tea with me:)
The weather today is chilly, seemed like a perfect time to try out this tea!
Added a few rock crystals in the brew basket, waited…..added milk and the smell is to die for, chocolate wafts to my nose as I take my first sip: sweet notes intermingle with the chocolate. Smooth tea taste:) First impression, I am so glad this on the permanent collection! and I really must get off the computer because I have to drink this tea while it is hot…later!

Mmmmm. I completely had to remind myself that I was drinking tea (well, mate) and not coffee! Wow, this one is really close to coffee. I am not an avid mate drinker, but I used to be a huge coffee addict, so this is a real treat. I definitely taste chocolate along with the coffeeish taste. Mine is sweetened and with milk added. Thank you to FairyFli for sharing! (Yeah, she sent me some real gems this week! There are at least two more!)

This is a good basic chocolate Yerba Mate. It is actually pretty chocolatey, but I’m not getting the malt flavor. I would have no problem drinking this on a regular basis. As good as this is, I still slightly prefer Teavana’s Yerba Mate blends. Prepared with almond milk and stevia.

I was really hoping that this would be the tea that would make me like yerba mate. Really hoping. I should really know better by now not to let my hopes up like that, but I keep trying.

The dry tea smells like chocolate with a hint of something else, tobacco maybe? And after steeping, the tea smells like chocolate and malt and some yerba mate smell. The taste is strongly of the mate with some chocolate and a hint of malt in it. The combination is kind of a weird flavour and I can’t say I like it at all. Which is really too bad because I really really wanted to like this tea.

I bought this as part of my first order ever from 52teas. I had gotten two bags.

On my first cup of this blend I was sort of underwhelmed. I oversteeped it a bit and had too much mate flavour. Then I tried it again the next day, studied the flavour more and how the whole cup felt when finishing it and it showed me more of its wonder. I could pick out the hints of malt and chocolate but what really stood out is how smooth this one is. Frank seems to know how to make his blends really flow well. I did this again the next day and before I knew it, I was missing it and/or looking forward to it.

I had gifted my second bag to a friend who loves tea as well and have more coming for myself in the mail.

I bought this in an attempt to find a mate I like. The reports of its great chocolateyness convinced me. To be fair here, I haven’t liked any mate I’ve tried. But I do like chocolate, which I was hoping would override it.

It does smell very chocolatey in the bag, but once I brewed it I got worried. It just smelled like mate. So I courageously took a sip and, well, it didn’t taste like much of anything! There was a tiny hint of chocolate but not much going on. I think I used plenty, so I will have to try steeping longer. On the bright side, it didn’t taste like unpleasant mate to me. It gets points for that. I decided to heat and whisk some chocolate almond milk I have but since that itself doesn’t taste like much, it only improved it slightly.

I don’t know. It was okay but I ended up forgetting about it halfway through the mug and never finished.

This tea seems to be regarded by some as one of the most chocolaty teas out there. So, being the chocoholic that I am, I had to try it. :P

The tea itself smells chocolaty, with a hint of maltiness and a touch of roasty.

I originally steeped it for about 6 mins, but it was still pretty light, so I left it in for an extra couple of minutes while I let the water cool down to not-burning temperature.

The tea tastes chocolaty, as one would expect. Not as chocolaty as a chocolate bar, but still chocolaty. :) There’s a hint of malt in there too, which adds to the tastiness.

It’s nice and smooth, which I like, but it doesn’t really have a strong flavor. I think next time I’ll add more leaf and see how it goes. What’s there is yummy, but I would like it to be a bit more flavorful. (Could be that I used the not-boiling water at work instead of actually boiling water, as is suggested.) But I definitely like it, and I can see myself having this in the morning (when caffeine is needed) quite often. :)

It’s ok. I don’t think I brewed it long enough.

Thanks Sare for sending me a sample of this! When I first tasted it, I was a little disappointed. It didn’t really taste chocolatey or malty or really like anything at all, but it has gotten such good reviews here that I didn’t want to give up yet. I decided to add a little bit of sugar, which is something I never do, but it seriously made a huge difference. The chocolate was much more prominent. Yum.
