Episode 179: Flaming Chocolate Maté

flaming-chocolate-mate

I haven’t had a roasted yerba maté in quite a while, so I dug through my collection and picked out this old chestnut from Zoomdweebie’s — Flaming Chocolate Maté. While I’m not usually one for chocolate teas, the mix of roasted yerba maté, cacao nibs, and cayenne pepper intrigued me.

If you like a sweet and spicy tea, this one is right up your alley! It’s well-balanced and not too hot, but if you’re looking for a comparable taste without the heat, check out Teavana’s My Morning Maté. (And then you can add cayenne pepper yourself to your liking!)
