Taster’s Review:

I love contrasting flavors like spicy and sweet, so I was confident that this Flaming Chocolate Maté would be right up my alley.

And yes, I’m loving this!  The chocolate is a little on the light side, but, it is incredibly smooth and deliciously sweet.  The cayenne pepper doesn’t really launch a full assault on the taste buds, in fact, throughout the sip, it is just barely there.

It is in the aftertaste where I really feel the delightful burn on the back of my tongue and throat. I like that this isn’t too hot where I feel like my taste buds have been burned.  It isn’t so hot that I feel like my mouth is on fire, but it definitely brings the heat in it’s own gentle way, like slow-burning embers.

The rich, roasted taste of the yerba maté is there too.  Because it is a roasted maté, this is more earthy tasting than vegetative, and I think that works to this tisane’s advantage.  The roasted flavor enhances the flavor of the chocolate, bringing out the richness of the cacao.

This is a delicious, invigorating, spicy-yet-sweet cuppa … perfect for those mornings when you need a little something to get you on your way!
