Tea Type: Yerba Mate/Rooibos Blend
Where To Buy: White August Tea Company
This energizing combination of sweet chocolate and south American mate is sure to stimulate your senses.
Over the last couple of months anything marked Choco & Mate I have been interested in trying! When I saw this one from White August Tea Company I was equally if not MORE excited to try it! All of the teas I have tried from this company I have enjoyed – as was the case with this specific offering!
Prior to infusing this smells like Chocolate Milk… Sweet Chocolate Milk!
After infusing it does lose a lot of the sweet aroma but you can still smell cocoa or chocolate just not as sweet and not nearly as strong as before infusing.
The taste is primarily Yerba Mate. The Sweet Chocolate flavor comes thru nicely but I would LOVE to try it with even more Chocolate flavor! There seems to be a little Rooibos Flavor coming thru, too. I have yet to put this to the test but I’m considering increasing the amount of loose leaf but infusing for a little less time to see if the chocolate comes thru more.
Regardless…this is tasty…a very good flavored Yerba Mate! I would suggest this to anyone looking for a flavored Yerba Mate, a flavored Rooibos, or a Chocolate or Cocoa Flavored Tisane!
