This morning I made Mocha Nut Mate (Adagio) and JavaVana Mate (Teavana) at the same time so I could compare them. They are a lot less similar when having them back-to-back than when drinking one and comparing it to my memory of the other (I kept switching between the two mugs… Yes, I was that intense about it. And I continued switching until I’d finished them both).
JavaVana Mate (16oz of boiling water): 2.75 teaspoons tea + 1 teaspoon rock sugar + a little half-and-half
Mocha Nut Mate is definitely pretty good, but I like JavaVana Mate more. What distinguished between them the most for me is that hazelnut is a strong flavor in Mocha Nut Mate whereas the (dark?) chocolate in JavaVana stands out. The chocolate in the latter gives it a kick that I preferred to the hazelnut creaminess of the former. (Both are good, but JavaVana wins for me.)
