From 52teas

I had soooo much fun last week with the malted genmaicha, and after hearing several people ask why we didn’t make it a chocolate malt, I decided we should do a chocolate malt tea this week. Here it is, our Malted ChocoMaté!

This is roasted yerba mate with organic cacao nibs and all natural chocolate and malt flavors. It is one delicious energy kick!

I have wanted to try this tea for over a year. It kept going in my basket, then going out, popping in – then being replaced by other blends. Gah! Well I wanted a fullish basket for the latest order with 52teas, since it costs a bit more now to make an order – I need to make it count!

And count it did – with the recent rave reviews of this tea I had to finally try it and it definitely meets my expectations! I get a banana note in the dry smell that reminds me of banana bread with chocolate chips. After steeping, the smell is much chocolatier (real word!) and quite intoxicating!

The taste is nice and chocolaty – reminds me a lot of Chocolate Rocket but with even more chocolate and a little more banana taste too! For the life of me I can’t find a malted chocolate shake in Canada so I’ll just say that’s the malt. (I’ve had Whoppers and other malt ball candies, so I know the flavour I’m kind of looking for!)

I’m going to scroll through the other reviews and see if anyone has tried this iced and what their methods were? I would love to try this as an iced latte with whipped cream to get that chocolate milkshake taste. Any tips friends?

mm I’m getting a honey texture and flavour near the bottom of the cup. I like it! I should say that I didn’t have any additions this time around and it’s nice and sweet all on it’s own!


I swear someone said they had tried it iced! I thought it sounded really strange, but now that you’re mentioning ‘milkshake’… (All I can think of is Fuddrucker’s Chocolate Malt milkshakes, or whatever they were! Where it didn’t even all fit into one glass! Yum!)


oh yeeeah Fuddruckers! Dang I miss them. I miss Ruckers too! I spent a lot of money there as a child lol – I would do it again!


This so appeals to me, except the Mate part. How does that come out in this tea?


Ah good question – I’ll be honest with you, the mate flavour is pretty prominent. It’s extremely well blended and flavoured that it doesn’t stand out, however it’s definitely an integral part of the taste!


I’m confused…banana??

We are getting ready to celebrate our company’s 24 Anniversary! I am in charge of marketing, so needless to say, I am swamped at work once again! Thankfully I enjoy being busy, sadly I miss my sleep. I decided that this tea would make a great morning tea for this week!

I had this tea only once before, and it struck me as fairly average. It didn’t work the magic I had expected it to. It has been quite a while from this last time, the tea has settled and it has become much better!

The dry tea definitely has a malted chocolate ball smell to it. It is more malty than chocolatey and there is a definite mate roastiness to the scent. I really like it.

The resulting cup of tea, in my opinion, must be sweetened to obtain full chocolate effect. It is indeed a very good malted chocolate flavored tea. There is no bitterness to it. The first flavor to hit is chocolate and maybe a hint of vanilla. The maltiness follows. And then, surprisingly, I taste a tiny bit of fruitiness, maybe a hint of banana. Odd, but tasty!

I really am enjoying my ritual of morning Malted Chocolate Mate! It has gotten me this far in my busy week! Hopefully it will pull me through Saturday as well (I have to work weekends this week… The only part I don’t love about my job!)


it’s always so nice to do the extra miles for a job we like especially when we are happy with the results (generally people don’t realize how many efforts it take to coordinate and deliver projects). The good point is you can drink more teas especially ones with an high level of caffeine..


Very true! :)

Okay – I made the most amazing iced latte today! First off I made a pot of tea last night of this tea combined with 52 Teas Heath Bar Tea. I find both of them to be a little lacking in the chocolate department so I figured if I mixed them I would really get a chocolate kick! The hot version was pretty good and chocolately, the iced plain version was chocolatier yet and then the iced latte was just pure chocolate goodness!

I took about 8 oz of the iced tea and then I took some Smart Balance milk (about 3oz) and I added a bit of chocolate syrup to the milk. Then I used my milk frother to froth the chocolate milk and then mixed it into the ice tea.

It was pure wonderfulness, I could really taste the maltiness from this tea and a bit of the tofee/caramelesque undertones from the Heath Bar tea. I think I will use up the rest of both of these teas in this manner.

My daughter Ari came over with her son for lunch. We made deviled eggs, raspberry almond flour muffins (heavenly), & a salad of Mizuna, radishes, & raspberries (all from my garden!) tossed with hazelnut oil & mango vinegar. Ari picked this tea to have with lunch. Perhaps sitting on the shelf for 6 months has done it some good, as it was much better than I remember it being. Ari loved it.


Sometimes heat affects my flavor perception and a tea I didn’t much care for in cooler weather is very good in the hot part of summer.

Terri HarpLady

Maybe that it :)
Also my allergies cause my taste & smell capabilities to be mutes, then I miss subtle undertones.

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!


I think this tea is much better as an iced latte sweetened with a little bit of chocolate syrup. It really brings out a creamy malty flavor.


Now that sounds good.

Thank you The Quiet Life for allowing me to taste this wonderful tea.

I loved the flavor of this tea. The chocolate shines through and the mate makes for a rich malty taste. I LOVE the depth of and complexity of flavor in this tea. However, the caffeine was overwhelming have to have this in small bits.

WARNING Do not consume after taking Darvocet Wow, it will make your heart pop out of your chest. Yikes!!!

The caffeine point you make is interesting… I’ve heard it’s actually easier to digest, even people that can’t do coffee can do mate. Is it maybe just because you’re used to going caffeine free?

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

I really think it is because of the medication I took prior to drinking it. I really had a reaction. The heart was beating rapidly, it felt very much like I was over caffeinated. Although, I reduced my caffeine intake I didn’t completely stop so I don’t think that was it. I do plan on trying it again with no medication to see if that was the issue.


Oh yes, I’m very familiar w/ meds making you feel like crap. It bites. Do you have some ginger herbal tea? Maybe that would work:) I also like the combo of ginger and rose.

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Ya know I actually don’t have Ginger tea but that does sound like a great idea.


I always have dried ginger root on hand- I mix it with green and white teas a lot.

Southern Boy Teas

PLEASE, do not let your heart pop out of your chest over our teas.


Yeah, if you die not only will we all be VERY sad, but unfortunately you won’t be able to drink any more tea:(

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Do not worry there will be no death or hearts beating out of their chests. I sm sure Frank would want to put a warning label of his teas if that happened. Such as…. “May cause sudden ejecction of heart from chest and followed by immediate death.” Unless this is like that Indiana Jones movie where removing the heart from the chest momentarily is safe if promptly replaced. LOL :-)

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Sorry typos… “I am sure Frank would NOT want to put a warning label on his teas”


“is safe if promptly replaced. LOL :-)”… 5 SECOND RULE!:)

Southern Boy Teas

Yeah, that kind of warning would be great for sales.


That would be an AWESOME sales tactic for ManTeas:)

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Happy to be of assistance. :-)

Dexter3657 shared some of this with me months ago. I then got even more in the bestsellers sampler pack. Though I find it good, I am not THAT in love with it so I ended up sending the sampler to a friend and kept what Dexter sent me for myself.

This is not one I reach for often but when I do, it is always quite good. It is chocolate-y but when combined with the roasted mate, it comes off malty. So, basically what you would want in a tea called Malted ChocoMate. Thank you Dexter for the generous portion!!

I received this one from both TastyBrew and momo, which is awesome, because I really liked this!

This tastes like adult hot chocolate, with strong malty notes and a rich cocoa flavor. The mate is roasty and really amplifies the malt aspect. I don’t find the chocolate flavor as offensive as I typically do, but it’s got that tiny bit of artificial twinge.

I really want to try this sweetened with milk. But even without, it’s a solid and yummy cup.

Thanks guys!

One of my faves from 52 teas :)


I’m starting to think I just don’t like chocolate tea! But I could definitely see how this is a favorite :)

Hmmm…this is pretty good! Thanks, Stephanie, for this sample! When I steeped this up, I was a little worried, because it smelled like the chocolate malt honeybush tea that didn’t reblend well. Probably has some of the same flavoring. Fortunately, this tasted good! I definitely get chocolate malt flavor, and maybe a little banana. It’s pretty smooth too. I steeped it at 190 degrees for 5 minutes. This is my first mate, so we’ll see what kind of effect it has, if any. Definitely doesn’t have that tea taste…more like an herbal, which turns me off a little. I like having that tea taste in the morning, and with the energy boost of mate, this has to be a morning tea for me. Not sure if I’d pick up more, but I’m glad I got to try a mate, and even happier that it tastes like it’s name implies!


I get banana too!


Oh wow your first mate! :)


Ya, my first! I didn’t notice any crazy caffeine boost, so I guess I can handle it!

Yeah, this one is going to have to stick around too.

I’m finding I prefer roasted mate to normal mate… pretty much… always. The roasted, toasty goodness really makes everything nice.

This tea from 52teas is no exception. The roasted base mate is strong and flavorful, with the sweet, almost bitter dark chocolate flavor coming in nicely afterwards… finishing with a hint of banana? Yes, it definitely seems to be banana at the end.

I think if I ever had to try to lure someone away from coffee, I might start them with this tea. It has a lot of similar characteristics that you would find in a good cup of coffee, and that creaminess that really makes the morning kind of come together. If I could trust myself to boil water in the morning without causing myself serious damage, I might use this instead of my typical cup of Mr. Coffee. I don’t, but that’s besides the point.

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

I find it slightly amusing that I could have written this exact same tasting note. Minus perhaps the last sentence or two. I get the banana flavour, I much prefer roasted mate, I think this one’s delicious, I think it’s ideal as a coffee replacement…. :D

Dylan Oxford

Haha, yeah. There’s a reason I don’t shave in the morning either :P


Hahahaha ;)


I usually don’t like roasted mate but this one really works. It just blends so well!
