From Teavana

This is a blend of two teas making an even more spectacular cup.

A deliciously smooth herbal tea that is perfect for coffee lovers. It does contain caffeine, but many people have a different reaction to this stimulant since it is blended with the other natural xanthines found in Mate (theophylline and theobromine). Together they create energy without jitteriness or addictive tendencies. This tea is also a wonderful diet tea, since it curbs hunger. MateVana does contain nuts.

As seen on “The Today Show.”

Ingredients:
Roasted Mate leaves, cocoa kernels, rooibos tea, chocolate chips (sugar, cocoa mass, cocoa powder), flavoring, white cocoa butter splits (sugar, cocoa butter, dextrose), almonds, cactus blossoms, sunflower petals and cornflower petals.
This tea contains nuts.
Rooibos Chai
This delicious chai is made from Aspalathus linoaris, a South African plant that gives it a rich, red color. The red Rooibos is naturally caffeine-free and filled with vitamin C, minerals, and proteins. And combined with cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, and lemongrass, it makes a wonderful herbal tea.

Okay, so first of all, the steeper mug from Golden Moon is NOT good with rooibos/mate/other small-leaf things. Ewwww. Unfortunately, I don’t have any paper filters with me, so I will have to deal.

And my verdict is that this is tasty warm as well (though I could have brewed it stronger than I did). :) It’s got chocolate (though not very pronounced) and spiciness and nuttiness. Mmm. Not something I would want to have everyday, but it’s enjoyable! Muuuuuuuch more so than MateVana on its own, which was blech.

Should you find yourself looking for a finer infuser that will filter just about anything, I highly, highly recommend the Finum infusing basket. I have two and I love them.

Nice! I’ll have to check those out. :) The steeper mug infuser isn’t terrible (I was being a bit dramatic, I think :P), but it does leave a bit to be desired with the rooibos.

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

I also use a Finum basket and would recommend it.

woo :) that’s going to be all my morning teas – i set them up the night before and wake up to tea, it’s so great, too bad i can’t afford to have one at work and home!

Yeah I quite enjoy the process of making tea but 1st cuppa in the morning and when I come home (especially in the winter) will be SO nice… and will motivate me to drink more thru out the day.

Today, I drank this blend cold. I made the blend last night: (2 teaspoons Rooibos Chai with 2 teaspoons Matevana with 1/2 teaspoon of German Rock Sugar) in my glass cylindrical tea carafe. I filled it half way with hot water, allowed it to steep for five minutes. This brew is dark, almost black right now, maybe I let it steep too long? Anyway, filled the rest with cold water and put in the fridge overnight.

This morning I poured about half of it out into my travel mug. It was still dark, but it was very good. So I kinda like this Chai cold, odd.

The flavor is complex: you have a tea flavor, but then a hint of almonds and cocoa, followed by the chai spices. The is what is most complex; it is contrasted by the temperature of the tea. This does not make the taste more intense, but it makes it a sensation, you have the blend of flavors and mouth feel combining to make a total experience.

This came in my Fire Sale box from iHeartTeas.

It’s funny because I’ve only seen MateVana mixed with Rooibos Chai. I’m curious what the MateVana tastes like by itself, but this is a nice little blend. I brewed this using one of my T-Sacs because I figured the mate or rooibos wouldn’t expand too much. The chai is not too strong, and it does still have that coffee taste. Although I do find it kind of ironic that you’re blending a highly caffeinated tea with one that has no caffeine. But the flavors go well together. We’ll see how this holds up to resteeping.

This one is very very good! My father bought a huge tin of this at Teavana one day since he tried it there and loved it. A great blend

This is slightly chocolate-y and nutty tasting with a spicy background. I can taste the vanilla, chocolate and cinnamon all individually. This is a pretty good mate blend.

I like! A good, well-balanced blend for this time of year. I wish I had brewed it a little stronger, and not had it follow up a spicy meal though.

Personally, I love this blend. I think that it is a perfect mix that instantly calms me down but at the same time gets me excited and leaves me intrigued. Anytime someone comes over I always offer them some tea but am a little hesitant to share this one!

I can never get the tea to taste the same way that it does in ths store, drats! I think I need to start putting more tea in (?) I played around with the sugar amount today and it didn’t seem to make a difference, so I think I’ll try making it more concentrated. Though, this already seemed like there were too many tea leaves and not enough tea! I drank two of these and I’m not really more awake (supposed to be the same amount of caffeine as coffee!)

Today I’m drinking straight up tea, nothing added. Although a bit of sugar would be nice, it’s not needed.

Something is off with this cuppa this morning. Not sure. I drink this often and it still smells delightful with the chocolate and spicey blends wafting up from the cup. However, I think my vanilla lip gloss has messed with the taste and it’s a bit disappointing. Good to note. No more lip gloss before my first cuppa the day.
