I just bought a sampler pack from this vendor on Etsy and this was one of the teas I was most eager to try! Upon uploading all the teas to Steepster and comparing what came up it’s clear that he sources from Bulk Barn in Canada. This actually is fine with me as I don’t live in Canada and Bulk Barn doesn’t sell online.
I’m very glad to have access to this tea! It has a very fresh chocolate flavor that blends quite well with the yerba mate. I like the choice of unroasted mate here, it adds a very pleasant sort of body to the tea, like milk chocolate instead of dark. There’s a pretty intense aroma as well – it sticks around even after the tea’s been drunk, my roommate noticed it when she came home and asked if I’d had something with licorice or anise. I don’t believe this tea contains either but I can see how she got that impression! It’s a very rich scent.
Overall a very good tea for the price, I’ll likely pick this one up again!
