So, I guess I am on a roll of reviewing teas that don’t exist anymore. I am particularly sad that this one got discontinued, as I have just finished what little of it I had left. This is one of the teas I have used many times to introduce my friends to the greatness of tea, and it did make a few new happy drinkers. It also is the tea that helped me get through countless sleepless nights (ok, I could probably count them, I’m lazy), studying or typing some essay, thanks to the mighty power of maté. The best way I could describe the taste is: After Eight in your cup. Minus the sugar. It’s really that simple (and my friends all agreed on that!). And since I love After Eights, 1+1=2, I love this tea! The taste of maté gets a bit lost in there, but not entirely (you have to concentrate pretty hard).
I guess it got replaced by the Mint Chocolate Rooibos, which I haven’t yet tried, but I suspect it tastes very similar. But rooibos instead of maté? Whyyyy?? Rooibos makes me sleepy! Now, my exams are coming up, and I am left wondering what will help me make the sleepless nights more enjoyable. Sad, very sad indeed!
Emotional outburst aside, I am really enjoying this last cup of it I’m having now!
