I would not recommend this tea. It is bitter and disgusting. Not blended well at all.

This brew gives you a tasty boost with a unique combination of exotic ingredients. It combines four types of coffee beans with Argentinian maté, and laces them with carob, white chocolate and chicory. The result is sweet, rich and deliciously satisfying. Plus it’s a sweet treat you can enjoy guilt-free, since this blend has virtually no calories. No wonder they say maté makes you efficient.

This is my first time having this tea and the only reason I’m trying it is due to the Advent Calendar.
I can definitely taste the mate which is nice, and the coffee carob flavour. It’s a bit sweet naturally, which helps this cuppa.
Overall it reminds me of a dirty coffee cup that has warm water in it. Not quite my brew.
I really enjoyed this yerba mate and coffee blend. It’s a nice start to the day as a coffee-tea hybrid to give you a bit of a caffeine hit. The coffee beans help to balance the sweetness of the mate and chocolate. There’s a nice creaminess to it and I don’t mind the bitterness that is reminiscent of the bitterness I’m accustomed to with coffee.
Flavors: Almond, Bitter, Chocolate, Coffee
I put this in my gravity steeper and totally lost track of time. Thankfully, mate tea doesn’t seem to do the mad-crazy-bitter thing that black tea does when oversteeped. This just became stronger.
This tea gets a special place in my heart for being one of the first ones I liked. My friend was ordering from David’s Tea and I threw in an order for a few things, just to try them. I had no idea what I was ordering. This one’s ingredients sounded good, and I’d heard vague things about mate tea helping with weight loss. Boom. Money gone. Tea arrival.
Thankfully, my lack of knowledge didn’t hurt me.
This is a great tea. Deep and slick and with a few chocolate and mate notes, as well as a hint of robust coffee.
Oddly, my FAVORITE part of this tea is its aftertaste. (How often can one say that about ANYTHING?) It coats the tongue in something really silky and good that I can’t quite pinpoint. Yum.
This is the worst tea I’ve had the misfortune to taste so far, since starting to drink loose leaf teas. The flavour was so very bitter. I tried one cup with milk and sugar – and another cup with condensed milk – before I had to return my tin at the store. I blame the coffee beans for the bitterness (although I might be wrong) so as a result of this experience, I won’t be buying any other teas containing coffee beans in the future.
This was one hell of an interesting cup of tea. And I mean that in the best way possible. The smell, was…well. It reminded me of when I was a child living at my fathers place in the country. The smell was very fresh, almost like walking through a hay field (if you don’t know the smell, it’s amazing) Tastes extra nice if you add a touch of the Hot Chocolate tea from the same company.
