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 made this one the other day as a latte…I sprinkled the top with some ground cinnamon and chocolate! (It was amazing)I have yet to try this as a tea but as a latte I would strongly reccomend it…I think the best way to describe it would be as a cinnamon hot chocolate :).

Mmmm. Chocolatey and cinnamony. Great smell, drank it black and it was still pretty rich. I’m almost afraid to try it with milk because I’m worried that’s the only way I’d drink it from now on, and if I drink it black this would be a great low-calorie contender for a dessert tea at work to distract me from the brownies on the craft table!

Day #14 of tea! And good morning to a mate blend… This tastes almost like hot chocolate – which is good, because it has practically no caloric content to it, haha. I think this would be brilliant as a latte, and I have enough leaves left to make one. This is a very messy tea, though, and why I’m not ranking it higher – I really don’t like having bits floating around in my mug.

1tbsp in my large large libre tea tumbler.

Put the lid on at five minutes, but let it steep longer because it was HOT. One thing that I love about mate, however, is that it is both high caffeine, and ridiculously hard to oversteep; at least with the blends that I have, I’ve only found one (chocolate rocket) that doesn’t take well to the abuse of long periods of steep time as I go about my day.

This tea is supposed to be like the tea version of hot chocolate, and I can taste it. Actually, I think I’ve had hot chocolate that tasted more watered down than this before. The cinnamon actually helps a lot. For a tea, and drinking it clear, it tastes very rich. Though again there is melted chocolate in here, so it’s not too surprising. Really, though, yum.

To be honest, I may end up preferring this to hot chocolate, depending on when and how I want it. It’s better for mornings than the real thing, and delivers well on the chocolate.

I ordered some of this with my last order because it sounded like it would be something I’d enjoy. I’m always looking for an alternative to hot chocolate, but one that still has that rich, sweet flavor. I love hot chocolate, but would prefer to save the calories for something else.

Sipping… this tastes really familiar and I think that it’s the cinnamon DAVIDsTEA uses. It’s sweet and warming, but I don’t get that much of a cocoa flavor. For me, this is hot cinnamon water with maybe a touch of cocoa if I really look for it. I keep sipping the cup thinking that maybe I’ll get a stronger chocolate flavor, but it never comes. Normally a watery cinnamon tea would be down the drain by now, but there is something in this that keeps it from being a cup of spicy liquid gum. I’m not sure what it is, but I appreciate it!

I am disappointed because I wanted this to be a nice Mexican hot chocolate blend, but I really don’t detect any rich, milky chocolate. I suppose I’ll have to move on and find another alternative.


How do you feel about rooibos? I recently ordered Godiva Roche from English Tea Store. With just a little sugar and a little almond milk it tastes pretty close to hot cocoa, but you can taste the rooibos. Yesterday, I drank their Chocolate Black tea and it was good, too. Not super strong, but I threw in a few extra cocoa nibs to amp up the flavor. I really like both of those teas.


arichard – I’m a big fan of rooibos. Will have to look into Godiva Roche! Thanks for the suggestion!
