I was happy to see this tea in the 12 days of Christmas sampler as I wanted to give it another try. I steeped up two teaspoons with boiling water and only infused for 3 minutes. It was getting pretty dark, so I stopped.
I wish I could like this tea, but there is just something off about it to me. Maybe it is the flavor of the roasted mate, as I have tried other roasted mate’s and not enjoyed them to a greater extent of dissatisfaction than this tea. I taste the cocoa flavor, and that is enjoyable, but there is some off note in the flavor that I just don’t get. Ah, well, there are many more teas out there!
