Too nutty for my taste. I wish I had sampled this instead of jumping head into a 100 g tin. Will not be buying again.

This brew gives you a tasty boost with a unique combination of exotic ingredients. It combines four types of coffee beans with Argentinian maté, and laces them with carob, white chocolate and chicory. The result is sweet, rich and deliciously satisfying. Plus it’s a sweet treat you can enjoy guilt-free, since this blend has virtually no calories. No wonder they say maté makes you efficient.

This is the worst tea I’ve had the misfortune to taste so far, since starting to drink loose leaf teas. The flavour was so very bitter. I tried one cup with milk and sugar – and another cup with condensed milk – before I had to return my tin at the store. I blame the coffee beans for the bitterness (although I might be wrong) so as a result of this experience, I won’t be buying any other teas containing coffee beans in the future.
This was one hell of an interesting cup of tea. And I mean that in the best way possible. The smell, was…well. It reminded me of when I was a child living at my fathers place in the country. The smell was very fresh, almost like walking through a hay field (if you don’t know the smell, it’s amazing) Tastes extra nice if you add a touch of the Hot Chocolate tea from the same company. (DavidsTea)
(Tip: Let it steep. )
Flavors: Chocolate, Coffee, Hay
Could not drink this, past two sips.
Maybe it’ll work better for people who actually like coffee (which I admittedly do not). It brews up like mild coffee, bitter, strong aftertaste. Even smells bitter even though the dry tea smells like heavenly chocolate coffee.
It might taste good as a latte but I shouldn’t have to drown my tea in milk and sugar for it to be drinkable.
Traded it right away.
Flavors: Bitter, Coffee
daily resolution 3/14
Reviewing in retrospect.
If I want something vaguely vanilla and vaguely coffee, I’ll go to Starbucks and get full vanilla and full coffee instead. This was somehow both too weak and too strong.
Might try it again with milk and see if that improves things.
Flavors: Coffee, Cream, Grass, Vanilla
Another from “your daily resolution” sampler. Obviously I am not waiting till the new year to start digging in to this collection. This is one that caught my attention immediately since I am also a coffee drinker. I found the flavor intriguing, interesting but I also feel indifferent towards it. I think it is the yerba mate I notice the most, or is that the chicory? Tasting notes of wood, twigs, maybe a little grassy, maybe a little smokey, I can smell the vanilla but not sure it comes through when tasting. Happy to have tried a sample but it won’t be replacing my coffee habit anytime soon.
Because I am braver at trying coffee-flavoured teas, now, LOL.
I like Espresso Yourself better than this one, though I suspect that may have to do with the fact that I had more of a flavour to that one than I had here (less leaves, not steeped as long as it could have been). Also, that ones seems to be a lot less simpler in composition, so there might have been too many flavour profiles wrestling to de domiannt in this. Overall, not terrible, and okay in a pinch.
I really like this one, better than the old blend. I like that it smells of chocolate and coffee (like a moka). It wakes up, which is good, and actually tastes better than coffee! A great alternative for those who want something else to wake them up.
Flavors: Cocoa, Coffee, White Chocolate
