As soon as I smelled this it reminded me of Teavana’s JavaVana Mate, and it tastes very similar as well. The hazelnut flavor is stronger in this tea and I want to say this one is creamier as well. After the first few sips I was certain I preferred Teavana’s, but then halfway through the cup I thought maybe I like Adagio’s more, and then toward the end I was settling on Teavana’s again. (It could just be that I like Teavana’s more because I had it first and I have it often. But I think Teavana’s also had more of a pleasurable “kick” to it, whereas this was smoother.) I might make them side-by-side to compare.

I used 2 teaspoons for 16oz of water, added 1 teaspoon of rock sugar and a little half-and-half, and steeped for about 5 minutes.

Nice bold, nutty flavor. Chocolate taste is subtle. With a bit of sweet cream, it’s absolutely delightful.

Wow, this smells delicious! So nutty and smooth.
The scent brewed is very chocolaty with hazelnut also being a very strong scent – it actually kind of reminds me of nutella.
The yerba mate keeps it from tasting heavy – it still has the grassy hay like flavours. The flavours that I had scented are more in the background, they just make it very smooth. It actually overall has a very light nearly mineral flavour.

What a yummy tea. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about a mocha flavored tea. It came in my Adagio Mate Sample pack, so I gave it a try. I really enjoy it. It stands in for coffee. I’ve never been a black coffee drinker (unfortunately I go for the calorie-laden Starbucks drinks). I’m not going to pretend it’s anything like that. But it’s doesn’t purport to be. It’s good of it’s own accord! A mellow twist on a morning cup of joe.

I’ve been trying (successfully!) to cut back on (Starbucks) coffee for all the obvious reasons. I’ll never say I won’t have a cup from time to time, but this will make my quest to cut it from my daily routine quite a lot easier.

I think this may be a regular morning cup of tea for me. It’s so mild that it still has the relaxing “feel” of tea. But the coffee-esque notes and the brisk mate quality give you that pep in your step feeling. I quite like it.

The leaves are certainly nothing of beauty to the eye, like so many teas (imo) but I’m perfectly OK with that!

AND yesterday my teen daughter (coffee hater) said “Mom, what is in the tea basket?” I apologized for failing to warn her, but as it turns out, she liked it too. I’ll have to get more scoop to see how well, as we did give it much discussion from there, but I was suprised.

As a side note, we tend to rebrew our tea baskets. I’ve found with our Teavana teas, we get a good 4-6 brews (for a mug, so 4-6 mugs) for a single basket (prepared per the package directives). We do tend to steep a little longer on those last couple of cups, but manage to get quite a lot from each serving.

I’m not yet sure if this particular tea will last that long. I’m on cup three now and we’re still going strong, so I suspect it will. My other Adagio teas are hit or miss in this regard. Some getting as few as 2-3 cups (e.g., chamomile)(the greens seem to keep on giving).

Happy Saturday TeaMates. So long!

Magnificent! I am thoroughly impressed by this tea. It is a delicious blend of hazelnut with chocolate undertones that complement versus overpower the taste. PLUS, it’s got this great toasted flavor. I love my genmaichas so any tea with the toasted flavor I am a huge fan of. I may have to get some more of this one since my precious sample is quickly running out!

I like my mates a bit strong so I used 1.5 tsp/8oz. I was surprised that it turned out as good as it did given that the temperature is suggested to be 150F, whereas other mates have called for boiling water.

Nice full-bodied coffee/mocha analogue. The hazelnut is most prominent in the fragrance and in the aftertaste. Added almond milk. I imagine it’d be great extracted a bit stronger and with fresh whipped cream. For those looking for comparisons with similar mate’s, this is more coffee/mocha-like than Teavana’s Morning Mate or Matevana, but less so than Guayaki’s Vanilla Nut Mate and Mocha Macha. To me, those Teavana blends don’t have as satisfying or well-rounded a flavor profile.

another mate for the boy to adore … and for me to steal sips from his cup of!
if he likes this one i will do what i always do which is say ‘i will buy you some mate!’ and then use the order as an excuse to buy myself some fandom blends i don’t need. (i’m looking at you Tony Stark and Steve Rogers.)

my samples are slowly coming under control, so buying tea doesn’t feel as guilty as it did before, but i still have a ways to go. i definitely need a lapsang in my collection. and della terra chocolate. and vanilla. blerg nevermind.

a yummy mate! i’m not a big connesiour yet but what’s not to like about a tea with MOCHA in the name eh?!?
thank you moraiwe!!

The first time I tried this tea, I didn’t much care for it. I’m not usually a fan of sweeter teas and the aroma was a bit too much for me at first. However, the more I try it, the more I enjoy it. It’s really grown on me, as it has a nice roasted flavor that does a good job of mimicking coffee notes, and the sweetness is actually quite mild. I like to steep it a little on the hotter side, as I like a hint of bitterness to complement the sweeter mocha flavor.

Another sample from the faboo mtchyg!

I had a parade lined up for this tea. There were twirlers, fire-breathers, unicyclists, mimes, a marching band, and floats that looked like dinosaurs. (I love dinosaurs.)

The tea has all the things I like: mate, chocolate, nuts.

Alas, I had to send everybody home. The mimes are flying back to Paris as I type.

This is a really good tea. I’ll enjoy the sample I have.

But it’s not a great tea. It’s a bit flat and one-note.

It’s an orchestra with only bassoons. And I just can’t take that down the streets.

Flavors: Chocolate, Nuts

Yeah, unfortunately I feel a bit that way about it as well. I mean, the smell is really nice. But something about it doesn’t get translated to the flavor. Glad to know it wasn’t just me that felt it fell short.
