This is my current go-to tea at work. I’ve been trying not to drink caffeine at home, but it’s kind of necessary for 12 hour work days. I drank it in the summer and it tasted too rich and velvety, but now that it’s fall, it fits the season better.

When I need a pick me up in the morning, this is the tea to go. Because it is a maté, it contains a lot of cafeine (or mateine, whatever) and it succeeds in making me up! I also really like the taste : a combination of chocolate and rasberry. It it also a bit nutty because of the almonds it contains. I always keep a tin of it in my cupboard.
Flavors: Almond, Chocolate, Raspberry
Very thankful for the Clearance Sale going on at DAVIDsTEA on their website. I was able to pick 250g of this up, for 30.00$. It was definitely a risk spending $30.00 for a tea I never tried, but I’ve always been a fan of chocolate-flavoured teas, so why not just yolo.
Today I tried it for the very first time and I have to say that I’m very satisfied with the purchase. Not going to lie, the chocolate is not the star, it’s more of a compliment to the notes of coffee cake and dark roast coffee beans. It’s very smooth, and imo, it’s very hard to find a maté tea that can achieve this feat. The after taste is amazing, it provides a hint of raspberry syrup, which adds overall sweetness to each sip.
I’m not sure if this one’s going to be discontinued as most sales on clearance at 40% off do become discontinued (and somehow end up finding their way back to the store). It would be a definite restock, but I don’t need any more seeing as I do have 250g of it. If you’re looking for a pick-me-up, and need to wake the f*** up from whatever it is you did the night before, this maté will be your best mate (see what I did there). :]
Flavors: Coffee, Dark Chocolate, Raspberry
This is the first David’s Tea I’ve ever tried, and I have to say, I’m impressed. I was a little wary of trying a chocolate flavored tea. (I had a bad experience with a chocolate flavored water… so bad.) My worries were for naught, I really like this tea. It tastes like a candy my Grandpa used to make called “Bit O’ Berry Bon Bons” So, there are definitely comfort points. This tea has a strong chocolate and raspberry flavors with perfect almond notes. I’m very happy with this purchase from David’s Tea, it makes me excited to try more!
Flavors: Almond, Dark Chocolate, Raspberry
As someone who generally really dislikes chocolate in their tea… I surprisingly love this tea!?! It was quite out of the norm for me to buy this as I don’t drink mate (not as a rule or anything, just nothing has ever appealed to me) or chocolate teas, the smell of this one was what got me. Chocolate and raspberry. And it tastes exactly as it smells which is a bonus as that is rarely the case.
Anyways, a lovely tea to have on this snow day here on the east coast as I try to write two papers by the end of the semester groan.
Flavors: Chocolate, Raspberry
OMGoodness! wasn’t too sure I was going to enjoy this tea too much because of the high caffeine level, but holy cow I don’t think I’ll ever be able to give it up now! This tea is coming to work in my mug every morning from now on I think, all new teas will have to be tried at home. While the chocolate and raspberry flavors are not quite as defined as I would have expected (that combo is kind of the reason I got it) it’s absolutely amazing, and really I think this tea may have had something to do with my ability to cope with the less than stellar day at work today.
Now I had to double check the ingredients on this one after I took a couple sips because I honestly thought there might be banana in it, which would totally not be good as one of my co-workers is deathly allergic to bananas in any form, but lucky for me there isn’t any, so it got me thinking why on earth am I tasting banana, but after looking at a few other notes it would seem I’m not the only one.
