This was the free sample that was included with one of my Capital Teas orders. I have only had one tea with mate before (I think it was Celestial Seasonings Morning Thunder or something like that) and while it was okay, it quickly became a taste I didn’t like more than about half a cup of. So I was a bit nervous about trying this since there is no tea at all in it, just mate.

I made up the whole sample in a pot to share with Tea Club today. Used half 1% milk, half water and I went decently heavy on the sugar.

The predominant taste that most of us noticed was cinnamon, followed by ginger and lemongrass. Perhaps prepared in a different way, other spices would have come to the fore. It was pretty good. I don’t think I’d keep it in my cupboard over other chais, but I’m glad to have had the sample to try.

I got this one as a free sample with my first order from Capital Teas. (If you haven’t tried them, their customer service was AMAZING!). My first try I tried while half asleep at six am on a Saturday . . . and forgot to shake the bag so I got all the light ingredients and no mate. Determined I gave it another shot tonight. This time I did a double strong and made sure I got some of the heavy!

The tea itself is good quality, and a really intriguing blend. I’m not a fan at all of roasted mate, and am picky about my chai blends, so I was a little afraid of what I was getting into. But free tea, right? I was pleasantly surprised on first sip. The mate is definitely there and makes a lovely base for the spice blend. The roast is mild and if anything adds a uniqueness to the otherwise unmemorable chai flavours. If you’re a fan of roasted mate and chai, this is a must try. Me, I definitely won’t mind finishing it up but I probably won’t be rebuying it, especially at seven bucks an ounce.
