“So Adagio suggested 150F but that seemed a bit low, plus the zojirushi has 140 and 175, so I just went with 175. ANYWAY. I've been avoiding this sampler but I think it's time to give it a try...” Read full tasting note

The taste of toasted mate always takes me back to the first time I ever had mate – a toasted mate tiramisu. I loved that tea. This one is less chocolately than that one was, and this is also less chocolately than the aroma would suggest. Nuttiness abounds, and it makes for something different and pleasant to drink, this morning.
I tried this the other day cause I really needed the help of caffeine. I was expecting to taste more chocolate, so was a little disappointed but happy to get the caffeine, it did its job.
Tonight I finished my sample and was able to appreciate it more because I knew what to expect, I did not use boiling water like last time and I used more milk than I normally would have to account for not heating enough water. It was great mmmm roasted hazelnut latte, I would drink it again! Maybe buy, not sure. Thanks moraiwe!
I am a coffee convert, so this tea is just what I needed to make the leap from coffee to tea. When I first opened the package, I immediately thought to myself that this couldn’t be so… it was heaven in a pouch. It smelled overwhelmingly (but in a good way) of chocolate and hazelnut; true to the product description. The taste is strikingly similar to that of coffee. With a pinch of rock sugar it is sweet and packs a punch. I would recommend this tea to anyone. Adagio, job well done!
I’ve had this many times, but I’m going to be more controlled about it this time. Still though, it seems to be a similar taste no matter how I brew it: nutty, with a mild chocolately taste. It’s become my standby morning drink, but sometimes I wish the chocolate shone through more.
I have to admit that I am a big Starbucks fan. I love my lattes! I was shocked how similar it tasted to a latte after a splash of almond milk and sugar. I think this is perfect for someone transitioning from coffee to teas/tisanes. This is a definite repeat purchase!
I was expecting something earthier, but to my surprise, this was a very sweet and pleasant tea. The mocha and hazelnut flavoring is quite strong, and I suspect fans of those flavors of coffee would very much enjoy this. I did notice the caffeine was a bit higher than normal, definitely not something to try before you go to bed!
