The ultimate trip

Need a boost? Try this tea. First you’ll experience a pure, sweet hit of chocolate. Then you’ll find yourself awash in the freshness of raspberries. Followed by the richness of almonds and chicory. And then, bang, you’ll realize you’ve been infused with roasted Brazilian maté. How will you know? It’s what’s giving you all that crazy energy. Just fly with it.

Ingredients: Roasted Yerba maté (Brasil), cocoa, almonds, roasted chicory root, raspberries, natural and artificial flavouring*.

Day 2 of my “I like to do things backwards” Easter Advent calendar.

…I think we all know how I feel about this tea. It is THA BOMB.

VIA Rail has now started giving away new “thanks for traveling” chocolates if you go first class (which my dad does…often). They’re 70% organic, fair-trade dark chocolate, and made by a chocolate company called Theobroma. Reason why this chocolate company is THE BEST: Theobroma is the Latin genus name for the chocolate plant. I love “botany-smart” companies. It makes me happy. Aside from the plain dark chocolate pieces, they also have chocolate pieces with chunks of raspberries in them. I drool thinking about it.

ANYWAY. Back to tea. Chocolate, raspberry, a bit almond-y, and a WHA-BAM of roasted caffeine. Yum! I could drink this all day.

Verdict: will constantly have some in my cupboard at home and drawer at work.

This is one of my favorites. There is only one “side effect”… I end up cleaning, gardening and/or exercising that I don’t have time to drink more tea. But… my house sure is clean! ;p

@carol who I can’t say I’ve ever had the desire to clean after (or during) drinking this tea. My dusty things say “please develop this side effect!!!” lol. I do knit a lot faster while drinking it, though. At least that’s productive…I almost have a nice new short-sleeved shirt to wear!

One of the best Mate teas Davids Tea has to offer… ridiculously awesome if you go into the store and order it as an iced late with coco in the milk.

Awesome pick me up, and the chocolate raspberry combination is out of this world!

I liked this one even less than chocolate orange. It was different. Maybe too many flavours at once? Raspberry, almonds etc. I won’t be buying more. Tasted a bit artificial and I didn’t like that.

if teas had a level of difficulty, i feel like this one would be somewhat high. On the days i can make this properly, it tastes wonderful! otherwise its not so good

I did not like the taste of fruit with chocolate, not the best mix.

This tea was my first mate tea that I had tried and I just keep going back to it! I first bought a 25g bag, but that went too quickly… Now I buy 100g bags and even have two tins for it. I love it in the morning – I just feel more awake after having it. I can’t imagine starting my day without it!

It’s called Chocolate Rocket, but the strongest note I get is raspberry. It reminds me a lot of milk chocolate-covered fruit. There’s some natural sweetness, but not too much. A decent tea, but it hasn’t made me a big fan of yerba mate.

I’ll be honest: I’ve ever been a fan of chicory. I’m trying to put that aside for this review, but…

This was included in the Chocolate Box (set of 9 chocolate teas) from David’s Tea. In the first cup I tried, I had no raspberry pieces. The only flavors I could pick up were the chicory, a bit of chocolate, and maybe a very slight hint of almond.

I made another cup, this time being sure to get a raspberry piece in the scoop. This cup certainly smelled of raspberry at least (as another reviewer said, it was just like the old Lip Smackers!) but I wouldn’t say it had a strong raspberry flavor. That said, the raspberry did seem to balance out the earthiness of the chicory, mellowing the flavor a bit. This cup was much better. The chocolate and almond seemed to come out more for me as the chicory was muted; the flavors were well balanced.

I’m glad I gave this one a second chance. All in all, it was a good cup of tea, but I wouldn’t buy a tin of it because of my feelings towards chicory. However, if you like chicory and you like chocolate, you’ll love this one!

This tea reminded and smelled like Lip Smackers lip gloss I had when I was younger that I didn’t like. Definitely would not buy this again or recommend it.
