drank Malted ChocoMaté by 52teas
1015 tasting notes

Well, I went to check the mail today and SURPRISE a package from Doulton. Before opening the package I could smell chocolate. I raced inside and ripped open the package to find a great assortment of goodies including this one. Since the chocolate aroma was so strong, my decision had already been made. I was going to pick this tea to try first. The given time range of 4-10 minutes was a bit large, so after reading a few tasting notes I decided on 5 minutes.

Let me just say, the smell of this tea is absolutely a chocolate lover’s dream. My entire apartment smells like chocolate now! I’m also excited because this is mate and I absolutely love mate, chocolate and malt. This tea is possibly the most perfect tea of my dreams.

The dry tea is obviously mate and includes little chocolatey chunks of heaven. The smell while steeping was too good, I was getting very impatient waiting for the 5 minutes to elapse. Without additives, this tea tastes like a dark chocolate, slightly bitter. I added a splash of milk and a pinch of sugar and WHOA!!! This tea is amazing. Very malted chocolate, rich and satisfying. This would be a fantastic dessert tea, but since it has caffeine from the mate, it is a good excuse to have dessert after breakfast. I haven’t had many chocolate teas, and the ones I have had included mint. This obviously chocolatey chocolate tea is a step above the rest. It is also my first 52teas and I am certainly impressed. Once again, much appreciation to Doulton!

I am a former coffee drinker turned tea lover.

Black tea is probably my favorite type of tea, but I rather enjoy most types… I’m even developing a taste for pu-erh.

Rating Scale:
0-10: This tea is either flavorless or just plain undrinkable. I will avoid these teas in the future.

11-20: I was only able to make it through a few sips before pouring the tea out.

21-30: I may have been able to make it through the first cup but the thought of having another has me cringing.

31-40: Teas in this range are not horrible, but nothing I would seek out in the future.

41-60: Would drink if offered, but would not purchase for myself.

61-70: Okay, nothing special

71-80: Enjoyable, but I have to be in the mood for these. Probably would purchase if I found a really great price.

81-90: Pretty good tea, will probably be one of my favorites.

91-95: These teas are really excellent. I wouldn’t necessarily run out and buy more of these (just because there are so many teas out there that I haven’t tried), but I would miss this tea.

96-99: Terrific, very impressive.

100: This special rating is reserved for teas that are absolutely perfect in my opinion. I will only give out a rating of 100 to one tea per category (Earl Grey, unflavored black, dessert tea, Irish Breakfast, etc). These are teas that I really want to have around.

Perfect Teas so Far:

Earl Grey: Saint Isaac’s Blend (Russian Earl Grey) from Upton

Dessert Tea: Marco Polo from Mariage Freres

Unflavored Black: Emperor’s Red from Premium Steap
