I brewed this tea twice. I have been having some fun with tasting tisanes gongfucha style.

I used 8 grams in a gaiwan with excellent results. Steeped in 5+ times.
I used 5 grams in my easy steep tea maker. Steeped it twice for about 3 mins.

Both times I found myself wondering why I don’t drink more mate. It had the exact flavor I was looking for from the name, and left me feeling the potent power of mate but not as strong as I experienced in the past, which for me was great.

Definitely try it out.

Thank you so much for the sale, TheLastDodo! This blend sounded MAGICAL. I will simply copy and paste the list of ingredients, so you can see what I mean: Toasted coconut, chocolate, marshmallow root, cayenne, ginger, licorice, cloves, cinnamon, yerba mate.

All of those sounded like a fantastic idea. The dry blend itself looks like a lot of coconut and marshmallow root unless the yerba mate is really finely ground. Not as many spices as I’d expect but there are pieces of chocolate. Sadly, even with two teaspoons (as suggested), the blend seems to taste mostly of a sour yerba mate. Not really any notes of anything else! How is that possible? Such a shame! I tried to shake up the blend before putting some into a teabag too. The ingredients for this one sounded like it could be a favorite blend for me (cayenne! Chocolate!), but ended up disappointing.
Steep #1 // 2 tsps. // 8 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // few min a.b.// 3-4 min

I hate when this happens! >:( I also hate when the aroma is amazing but the taste is barely even detectable.

I know! All the chocolate chips melted before I got it home :( I tried it with hot cocoa mix and cinnamon, to much more success. Definitely worth trying out!

But the chocolate is still THERE, it just doesn’t taste like it for some reason.

Hi, I designed this tea and i’d love to add my perspective. Try steeping it with full boiled water for 4-5 minutes. If the steep is short and the water is cool, you are not going to unlock the flavors. This tea has barks and roots in it that keep their flavors bound up tighter than flowers or added flavorings. Also, I changed the recipe years ago. It hasn’t had marshmallow root in it for a long time. Looks like you might have a stale, old batch. I hope you try it again with fresh leaves and freshly boiled water. Thank you for trying and reviewing my tea. I appreciate it.

Perhaps I didn’t steep it long enough, but the combination in flavors was off. I personally avoid chocolate in tea like a plague. I have been putting off this tea because of that. Maybe next time I will try to steep it longer and add gasp milk.
