I am getting so much more nutty chocolate flavour this time around. The raspberry is only in the aftertaste now. It is still pretty thin looking (only light light brown) and tasting at 4 minutes. I keep forgetting to overleaf this one and steep longer.

I added just a small amount of agave, less than 1 tsp, but I added vanilla creamer. It is not a bad tea to have around the house for when you don’t know what you want. This one is pretty versatile, it takes a lot of things well so you can slightly alter the final cup to suit whatever moods you find yourself in. (I’ve tried it with caramel cremer, hazelnut creamer and now vanilla). It could even be chai if you have got spices I’m sure.

Last cup, and another one down!

I completely love this one though, and will eventually pick up more of this. It is way better a mate than the mate chai I had in my cupboard previously. I’m not always the biggest fan of the chocolate-and-raspberry combination, but these flavours just work together perfectly. I think it is the almond balancing everything out.

I like to match this one up with DT’s raspberry-flavoured agave. You need to be careful not to overdo it on the agave, though – I have discovered that the flavouring is quite strong, and if you go hard on the agave, you end up with tea that tastes like raspberry flavouring and, uhhh… Raspberry flavouring. So yeah. Not too much agave.

Nice to hear some thoughts on the flavoured agave syrups; I’ve only had (and loved) the regular stuff. Thank you!

Funny, I’ve never liked agave that much. To me, it has an aftertaste extremely reminiscent of earwax and I just didn’t like it. I think I’ve gotten more used to it over time though, and it bothers me less now. I ended up getting both the syrups out of sheer curiosity, and I do like them well enough – for agave. :P Raspberry’s my preference, I think it has the least earwax-y aftertaste. I like it on ice cream!

I had an insomnia night, which happens rarely. I was up 5am commenting on discussion boards and studying my korean – at least it was productive! Now I’m sleepy and had to bust out this tea. Not that I’m complaining, love this stuff! The raspberry flavor is yum!

I was FINALLY able to try this one! It’s been on my list for a while…Special Thanks to the lovely DaisyChubb!!!! Thanks!

This could just be the best flavored Yerba Mate or at the very least one of the best flavored Yerba mate I have ever tried! The chocolate flavors are great and that little bit of berry is pretty awesome, too!The Chicory is just-right!

Wonderful flavor in this!~

Took my big new Bodum travel press to work the other day filled with this. It was a late closing shift and I needed all the energy I could get.

I was unsure how this would do in the travel press, since the leaves stay in the press until you’re finished the beverage. This seemed like a recipe for oversteeping to me. Luckily it actually melded the flavours together better than a regular steeping. By the time I went to drink this several hours after steeping it, the temperature was perfect and there was SO much berry flavour and the roastiness of the mate really came through.

As a snack with this tea, I ate a cranberry almond granola bar. It was a perfect complement to the tea.

As for the “rocket” part of this blend, I did feel more awake for the rest of the evening (even once I got home and wanted to go to bed, haha)

Shift switch! So I had to be at the station by 5am so what do I reach for on these days? Definitely a mate and I was given a chance to try this one from brandy3392 So I’ve been quite impressed so far with what I have tried from DAVIDs and this is not dissapointing me either. Especially with Mates I think that sometimes companies try to cover the flavor of the mate. I have also noticed that raspberry teas I have tried don’t seem to cut it either. However the chocolate flavor and the raspberry flavors don’t taste synthetic. The accompany the roasted mate nicely. It’s really smooth and reminds me of a good chocolate raspberry coffee blend that a coffee shop I worked for served. The hint of the almond flavor is nice too. It’s seriously like drinking a chocolate raspberry truffle. It stands up to a second steeping. The empty cup aroma on this one is flippin fantastic. I will probably order this when my swap runs out. This would be a great valentine tea.

this maté is truly wonderful! I love when a flavored tea live up to expectation, that’s why I love DAvids tea so much!

Thanks to SimplyJenW for a sample of this one!

Chocolate teas have not always been my favorite because usually I find them lacking in something. This is a pretty unique blend of chocolate, mate, raspberry and almond. I steeped mine for 5 minutes and found the ingredients to be flavorful and fairly well balanced but I also probably used a bit more leaf than I typically would. This is definitely a fun way to start the day! I hope the mate gives me a boost, I need one this morning. :)

Hello, my love! Where have you been all my life?

I’ve always been somewhat wary about chocolate teas, but this one is surprisingly delicious!
When first opening this package, I caught a definite chocolate banana smell (which is strange when there’s no banana in the tea). However, when steeped this tea transforms into a wonderful balance of fruit, and chocolate. First I tasted a smooth chocolate flavor, quickly followed by fresh raspberry, finally the two flavors intertwine at the end for a delicious finish. The almonds aren’t exactly a noticeable flavor in this tea; however they do add a nice depth that would otherwise be missing.

This light tea is still full of flavor, but it wont weigh down your taste buds like I’ve found a lot of chocolate teas tend to do.

Is there any hint of banana flavor in this? I’ve been thinking of ordering this, but I absolutely hate bananas.

DecemberMint

While I don’t mind bananas, they don’t belong in tea :) As far as I can tell, I didn’t observe any banana flavor in the actual tea, just the smell reminded me of them. _

Indigobloom

I tasted bananas! very slight. but I think that’s my taste buds confusing the raspberry

Quick cuppa to get me going before I have to leave. I’m doing a lot recently and it’s wearing me out, but I love spending time with the people I love. :) Helps me through depression as well.

This is a LOT better the second time around. Tastes almost like chocolate almonds with a hint of spice. Super strong and robust. Mmm. Almost smokey.
