The Republic of Tea Teabag Mate Tea 'Double Dark Chocolate Maté'

>>Prior Review

Tea Information:
Tea: Double Dark Chocolate Maté
Type: Mate Tea
Packaging: Teabag
Company: The Republic of Tea
Purchase: Here
Description: Dynamic Duo - It's a match made in heaven: antioxidant-rich, organic, roasted Yerba Maté blended with organic dark cocoa powder in a guilt-free, full-bodied dessert tea. Dark Chocolate also brims with antioxidants, plus polyphenols – compounds known to lower blood pressure. All with less than 5 calories per cup.

These two nutrient powerhouses promote longevity and good health. Savor the allure of organic, roasted Yerba Maté as it mingles with the satisfying flavors of organic dark chocolate. It's nice with a splash of warm milk.

Ingredients: Organic roasted carob, organic roasted Yerba Mate, organic natural dark chocolate flavors, organic natural cocoa, natural concentrated cocoa powder, organic natural chocolate extract and organic chicory

Steep Information:
Amount: 1 teabag
Additives: none
Water: lactose-free fat-free milk 6 ounces, 180 degrees
Steep Time: a little over 7 minutes
Served: Hot

Tasting Notes:
Dry Leaf Smell: dark chocolate bar, nutty
Steeped Tea Smell: Hershey's chocolate milk
Flavor: Hershey's chocolate milk, but with not enough chocolate
Body: Medium
Aftertaste: none
Liquor: light milk chocolate colored

So last time this tea was kinda weak watery chocolate, and now it was creamy weak chocolate milk. Disappointing. Next time 2 bags per 6 ounces of milk.

Post-Steep Additives: none, and none needed

Rating: 1.5/3
