drank Chocolate Mate Chai by Rishi Tea
4847 tasting notes

This is a tea that I was skeptical about – ok, ok, I admit it, I was afraid of this tea.

I am not crazy about pu-erh. That being said, I have tried a couple of pu-erh teas that I’ve liked alright – but, for the most part… I have a hard time getting past that distinctive earthy quality that pu-erh possesses. In a blend with mate which is also quite earthy… yeah, I was afraid to try it.

But… I’ll give it a chance.

Wow! This is actually really good. The chocolate is smooth and rich. The chai is not over-the-top spicy but I like how the masala spices come across in this blend. It doesn’t taste earthy at all. I love the coconut and the chocolate in this blend – they are the strongest flavors here. A different but tasty chai.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
