Commercial Description

It’s not coffee, is it tea? Taste this coffee-like maté and red rooibos blend. Sweetened with cocoa and chocolate chips, this mochaccino inspired blend infuses smooth, dark rich sips that are soft and robust.

Brewing Instructions: (from Teavana)

Use 1.5 teaspoons of tea per 8oz of water. Heat water to boiling (208 degrees) and steep for 5-6 minutes. 2oz of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.

It´s a soft tea I do not recommend, It was articial flavoring, with that kill the flavor of the tea.

I prefer for 2 reasons:

1- The artificial flavoring isnt the true aroma and flavor of the tea.

2- I look for healing properties of tea or infusion, but if this with artificial flavors, it isnt good and it wasn´t well.

A very smooth blend, but bordering on bland. I can see this as being vaguely coffee-like only in the most remote sense: the flavor is very mellow and smooth, unlike coffee.

I notice rooibos and cocoa, and a little bit of spice...it suggests cinnamon even though I don't see that listed in the ingredient list. Lightly sweet, even adding no sweetener. I can't isolate much mate in the aroma. The overall effect of the blend is that it's muddled: no aromas come out particularly strongly.

I remain unimpressed by Teavana's mate offerings as I sample more of them. In my opinion the company excels more at fruit blends.

Overpriced, given the low cost of the ingredients and the fact that it has no special certification like organic or fair trade, and the tea doesn't highlight any of the particular ingredients strongly enough for me to notice whether or not they're truly high-quality.

I love this tea. It has a light mocha flavor with out the bite of coffee. It smells so good in the tin and when you brew it too. I like it with a little skim milk and sugar. Yum!
