 (20 reviews)

type: herbal

origin: argentina

caffeine: strong

price level: $$$$

The mellow chicory-like character of our Brazilian toasted mate is a perfect platform for a favorite indulgence: chocolate! Add a bit of hazelnut and you have the perfect treat. Great straight up or enhanced with cream and sugar. If you're a fan of chocolate mate teas, we invite you to give this formula a try. Please note that all Mate varieties contains caffeine; we would not suggest it as a nightcap. Steep at 150°F for 3-5 minutes

      One of my favorites from Adagio. Makes for a good replacement for a cup of coffee and the mate gives enough of a caffeine kick. Mild chocolate and nut flavor.

      I thought the flavors went together, but I didn't actually like the flavors. I like coffee, so the watery coffee flavor made me feel like I was drinking bad coffee from a fast food restaurant.

      This seemed sort of weak to me even though I brewed the full 5 minutes. Flavor was just ok.

      Nutty flavor, very good for a morning cup, especially if you are a coffee drinker. This was perfect just lightly sweetened.

    • 

      I really enjoyed the flavor of this one. Plain the nuttiness was the main flavor, but with a bit of sugar the chocolate came forth to make a lovely nutty chocolate tea.

      I love this. Chocolate and hazelnut pair so well together.

      Smelled like hazelnut, tasted like water. Didn’t have any flavor to me.

      This was very nicely chocolate. Perfect with a little vanilla unsweetened almond milk and stevia

      I like the nuttiness of this mate and prefer to drink it with a little cream

      This mate blend was okay, but only okay in my opinion. I picked up this tea in the mate sampler, and it was definitely my least favorite. I was excited to try it based solely on its appearance in the Parks and Rec Phraseology fandom blend, but that blend was much better than the sum of its parts. Not a bad mate, but not my favorite.

      This reminds me of hazelnut coffee without all the bitterness. I love it! I’m usually a purist and never put sugar or cream in my tea but this one I tried it. It’s amazing. Coffee makes my stomach hurt, this gives me that fix without all the pain.

      I couldn't really taste any mocha flavor in this; it just has a slightly nutty taste on top of the vegetal/bitter toasted mate flavor. Not a favorite of mine, but if you enjoy mate it may be worth trying out.

      Tastes way too artificial for me. The strong hazelnut taste takes away from the tea and replaces it with what might as well be some run-of-the-mill junk. Way too chemically for me.

      a good tea but the smell was mate while the taste was nut so a little confusing for me

    • 

      This isn't bad, but its just a little too nutty for my taste. It takes away from the earthiness of the mate

    • 

      Very nutty. I like it. Very different than what I normally drink, but it's pretty good.

    • 

      A new favorite! A great replacement for coffee and great as a treat. Just enough caffeine for me. I also really love it mixed with a bit of chocolate chai. A very warm and inviting tea. I am definitely buying the big bag next time!

    • 

      The hazelnut works well with the naturally earthy flavor of the mate, the chocolate is kind of lost to me but the other flavors work so well together I don't really mind, love starting my morning with this one!
