From DAVIDsTEA

Muy delicioso

This super-chocolatey blend is an homage to Mexican hot chocolate, which is traditionally spiked with cinnamon. First we take carob, cocoa nibs, cocoa powder and chocolate chips for a rich chocolate overload. Then we add pieces of cinnamon for a hint of spicy warmth. And to top it all off we add South American yerba maté for a seriously sweet energy boost. Try it as a latte with a shake of cinnamon and a warm churro for dipping. (MK Kosher Dairy)

Ingredients: Organic: Yerba maté, carob, cocoa nibs and powder, cinnamon, chocolate. With organic and natural flavouring*.

I have been a mess lately. Whenever the weather changes, I get sick. I try to avoid it but it always happens no matter what I do. Also, my hockey team is terrible and I can’t leave my house because they decided to tear up my street. All of this makes it worse. I decided to make myself something sort of decadent to make it better.

The first time I tried this one, it was all “Meh”. It was weak and not chocolaty. It tasted like watered down cocoa. Not good. But I overleafed this time in a big way. And I added some cocoa powder…Valrhona…and some cream. It was absolutely delicious. The chocolate and cinnamon were perfect. And the heavy cream gave it the cocoa feeling. Of course, I had it at night so I didn’t sleep well but still…perfection.

Holy crap is this good. Rich chocolatey flavour, with a little tiny bit of spice. Tastes just like a zesty hot chocolate without the thickness of a hot chocolate. Exactly what I’ve been craving.

I seriously think I might have to buy a tin. I just wish I could afford it.

Edit: Scratch that. Dairy reaction….ughhh stomach hurts. I’ll still be finishing this one off eventually though, because I like it. A lot. :( Why does my body not seem to like anything I really like?

Eat some yogurt prior…..or raw sourkraut

VariaTEA

I was going to say it’s amazing as a latte and then I kept reading and I definitely don’t think that would be a good choice for you given your affliction to dairy. I hope you feel alright soon!

Yvonne

Yogurt is a huge no-no for me, unfortunately I can’t have it. :( Sauerkraut though I absolutely love, so I’ll try that. Thanks!

This is surprisingly the only tea with dairy so far that I’ve had that’s afflicted my intolerance! Being severe I’m astonished that I was able to drink what I’ve been drinking and not have a reaction, but I’m guessing the amounts are so itty bitty small that it’s not enough to trigger anything.

But thank you VariaTEA, I’ve had to run to the washroom a few times but other than that I feel fine now and back to my old self. :)

VariaTEA

Glad to hear you are feeling better now. I have a sensitivity to lactose (obviously no where near what you have) so I can understand the reaction one gets and I know it’s unpleasant.

Yvonne

I think everybody does to a degree, dairy never used to have much of an effect on me at all but since I’ve abused my body so much – especially over the past few years – I’ve developed a wild array of internal issues…gastrointestinal and otherwise. :( Sucks but eh, life goes on. :) I’m just so glad I have tea in my life now.

MagicDon

Saurkraut, kimchi, and they do sell probiotic pills that can help.

This poor tea sat on my counter for a week before I finally got to try it. I try to drink my mates in the morning to wake myself up, but I prefer my chocolate teas later in the day. It left me not quite ever craving it or willing to risk the mate.

Finally one day my sleep schedule got all messed up and I was waking up at about 2 in the afternoon one day. It was the perfect time for this one, and I brewed it eagerly.

When I pulled the infuser out I was very glad to have used the one I have which is best at capturing floating debris. The cocoa powder does make this one messy, although nowhere near as bad as say, Southern Belle. The tea is delicious, and I drank it without adding any sugar or milk. Next time I think I’ll add milk just to round out the flavour a bit and lose that dash of watered down aspect (its a tea, I can’t expect it to be thick like milk, right?). The flavour is definitely that of cocoa powder, spiced up. I can see myself getting this one in the winter more so than summer, as it is the perfect tea for skating parties and coming in after tobogganing. Definitely a great Canadian December tea!

I tried this iced since all the teas of the day seem iced for summer, though this one begged to be drunk hot, in my opinion, as a latte. I did get it hot today, but just with milk and agave. It was pretty mild, though the cinnamon flavor was the most present flavor, but not in an overbearing spicy way…the chocolate definitely blends well and is balanced.

I bought 16g to play with at home and see if I can make it a latte now that I have mastered the art of the microwaved frothed milk.

Bottom line, I like it, but I’m not sure I love it just yet. I think it might be a nice fall tea…

Another blend from TastyBrew! thanks again! I love the idea of Mexican hot chocolate which this blend compares itself to. However, it seems they only add cinnamon and not cayenne pepper. The blend itself looks like it is coated in chocolate dust. Roasted yerba mate, cinnamon and huge chocolate chips! How could this not be delicious! Brewed, the cup actually looks like a cup of hot chocolate! The flavor is great – the yerba mate has less of a barbeque sauce flavor than other yerba mate blends I’ve tried, but obviously that doesn’t seem like it would work here. I’m getting more chocolate than cinnamon. This blend would have been perfect with a TINY amount of cayenne just to make it noticeable. But otherwise, I love this.

I slept in a bit this morning, and was craving mate when I woke up. And since it wasn’t super early, I decided to give this one a try.

Courtney sent me a sample of it a while ago, but I never found the right time to have it. Too early in the morning, and I don’t want chocolate. Too late in the day, and I don’t want mate. But it worked this morning, and I am quite glad.

I love the cocoa / cinnamon combination, it’s reminding me a lot of apple cider. The first steep was very flavorful, and even though the second steep is a bit watered down, I might like it a little better. I don’t think it will hold up to a third infusion, though… it’s so powdery, it seems like everything dissolves pretty quickly.

Very tasty, though!

I enjoyed this one but it really toes the line between tea and hot chocolate. I ended up adding milk and essentially turning it into hot chocolate haha.

This was the tea of the day that they were featuring iced. I’ve never had iced mate before, but it turns out well evidently. I have been searching for a chocolate mate to replace my beloved chocolate rocket. I am starting to find that the raspberries are overwhelming the chocolaty-almond goodness :(
Anyways, I think I may just have found it! Chocolate and cinnamon and roasted mate make an excellent combination. Hot, I think it will taste just like cinnamon hot chocolate!

Thanks aimeepopovacki ! I’ve had this one before and loved it so I was excited to see it again. Nice chocolate and cinnamon notes. Creamy and comforting. A little weak but still delicious :)

I bought a small amount of this last night for my mom..I would have given her the whole package, but she’s never had mate before and is bad with caffeine so I told her I’d try it first and let her know how strong it is (and if it causes jitters lol). It’s also rainy here and I am sleepy and I would like a bit of energy to try my first gaiwan! It came from Verdant and I picked it up today woot!

The dry smell is soo cinnamon and chocolate! My goodness! The leaves, if that’s what they are, are super powdery and everything is a rich, dark reddish brown. I steeped for 6 minutes. The resulting liquor is very dark and coffee looking, and smells moreso like a chai from all the cinnamon.

The taste is quite good! It actually tastes remarkably similar to how it smelled, which is surprising that is is so similar. It is rich and warm, the cinnamon is the main flavor, and the cocoa is nicely holding it up with a dark, rich flavor. The mouthfeel is actually not too heavy, even though there is a small film on the top from the chocolate, but I realized not all of it dissolved, might have to eat it after haha. I can feel the mate already a bit, just making me more alert. I will monitor its effects, as I really want my mom to be able to try this, she would love it because it is quite chocolatey and she loves chais.

Overall, definitely an interesting tea. I won’t rate it yet until I see how the mate is, and I also burnt my tongue today on a Tim Horton’s white hot chocolate, so it might be affecting my taste buds a bit, it hurts anyways haha. But I am happy I did try this, I am not the biggest fan of chocolate teas but I am happy mom wanted to try some, because it isn’t too bad! Probably a nice tea for every once in a while. :)
