This is a non-winter/holiday tea that I was curious about, and Roswell was kind enough to send me a sample out of her own stash. I don’t have much experience with maté, but anything roasted appeals to me and the other flavors involved sounded so yummy that I wanted to try it anyway.

The tea itself is definitely quite chunky. There are lots of big pieces, like sliced almonds, cacao shells, dried raspberries, etc. The maté kind of resembles a darker roasted kukicha in some places, while in others it’s more fragmented and reminds me of fish food. Dry smell is amazingly raspberry and roasty.

Wow, I have to say, I really really like this tea. The raspberry flavor is strong and yummy and sweet, like raspberry jam. I can definitely taste the chocolate, and it melds wonderfully with the roasted and nutty flavors. Overall, it’s just yum, and so comforting. I can’t comment on the energy effect yet, but we shall see if I’m bouncing off the walls in a little bit. Delicious!

This is one of my absolute favorites for the morning! For me, the energy from it is great. I’m in my 60’s, I need all the energy I can get! :-)

After reading so many tasting notes about how good this is, I was pretty excited to try it. An it’s alright but probably not something I’ll buy once my 10g sample is done.

It has a bit of a water hot chocolate smell and taste, with a touch of raspberry tart and flavour, but also a lot of roasted chicory flavour, char, earth and mustiness which takes away from the elements that I was enjoying more.

I’m not generally a mate drinker, but I was hoping that the flavours here would compliment it nicely, and I’m not overly impressed.

YUM!!! Thanks so much to carol who for sending me a sample of this…it is DELICIOUS! The dry leaf smells like chocolate-covered raspberries. It steeps up to a rich, dark brew and has a fantastic rich, full-bodied flavor. To me, the chocolate is most prominent, but I also taste the raspberry and just a hint of nuttiness. Sweet and flavorful and the perfect high-caffeine pick-me-up!

This tea is tasty. It has strong flavors of chocolate and raspberry. I can’t really taste the other ingredients. This tea is good. So far I am 2 for 3 with my purchase from David’s Tea. This is a naturally sweet tea. I added sugar and its even better. I am not that knowledgeable about mate so I don’t know how it compares.

I brewed this once in an 18oz teapot with 2.5 tsp leaf and 185 degree water for 5 min.

Oooh. I’ve had zero interest in trying this tea until I read your note. Now I think I need to get some.

Oh this is such a delicious “replacement” for coffee. Nutty and full without being bitter. It has a hint of chocolate. Great sweetened with milk in the morning.

I like a more assertive tea, but this is well balanced and lovely. More soothing than anything else. I don’t taste a real chocolate presence, but there is a gorgeous richness. The nose is very sweet and floral, with a more muted taste.

This would match well with a simple biscuit or biscotti, perhaps with almonds or hazelnuts, that gives focus to the tea as a dessert or sweet afternoon refreshment.

I have not had much mate. This is pretty good. It both smells and tastes like chocolate and maybe berries. (I like it, so I’m part of Team Rocket). :)

Wow. The first sip I took of this was like a caffeine burst in my mouth.

If you like a bold, dark tea that nearly resembles coffee, then you’ll love this one.

It has a great dark chocolately, nutty, raspberry taste. It really does remind me of coffee a lot, but doesn’t have the bad side effects of it. It provides a great burst of energy without that awful crash in the end!

I’ve been eyeing this flavor on the David’s Tea website for a long while so I was thrilled to see it on tap at the local store today. It is definitely chocolate-heavy but that pairs well with the roasted mate flavors and the nutty almond tones. The finish has a strong raspberry note that I wasn’t expecting, but it is very rich and sweet even without milk or sugar. I am having this flavor brewed cold today without sugar or milk, but I bet it works better as a hot tea or as a sweet chocolate tea iced late. As usual with David’s Tea flavors, this is very sweet and playful, though more robust than many of the other summer flavors. I love a good chicory, roasted mate and the chocolate raspberry pairing is nice. It’s like a mate cousin to the Adagio Valentine’s blend. For fans of coffee, mate, and chocolate.
