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 got this tea as a gift and it for sure would not have been on my list to try. This was actually my first time drinking tea with chocolate in it. It smelled terrible. It didn’t smell like delicious hot cocoa – it smelled like a dirty jock strap! BUT…then I sampled it and it was quite delightful. I was really surprised! It was like tea mixed with watered down hot chocolate. So, it was neither tea nor hot chocolate, but an interesting fusion. I will definitely enjoy this one as a tasty treat!
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.

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.
