I’m not sure I should be drinking this right now (slight stomachache) but I could NOT resist any longer!
The smell of the dry leaves in the bag is absolutely incredible, chocolate-y goodness. I did steep this at around 180 F (who knows what the optimal temperature for mate is?)
I really wanted the malted milk ball experience so I added soymilk and a touch of turbinado sugar to this. OMG! This is so good. I am really getting the chocolate here which is rare for me and chocolate teas. I’m also getting a hint of the malt and the whole thing is just melting into my mouth like a really yummy dessert. I hope I don’t go bouncing off the walls anytime soon due to all the caffeine in this. What a big spanking cup of yum! YUM! :)
