Double Dark Chocolate Mate by The Republic of Tea

Manufacturer’s description: Dynamic Duo – It’s a match made in heaven: organic, roasted Yerba Maté blended with organic dark cocoa powder in a guilt-free, full-bodied dessert tea. All with less than 5 calories per cup.
My Score: 71/100
Review: Strong, almost spicy, chocolate, combined with a weak mate in a teensy little pouch. This is not bad at all, but it fails entirely at being well-rounded, although that was probably never their intention. After all, this is double dark.
The scent is strong chocolate—think cocoa powder tin in the pantry when you open it too fast and get a poof of powder on your face. There’s mate in here, but there’s not enough to give it a full-bodied flavor or the usual mate mouthfeel.
So, just add some sweetener and cream and enjoy your cocoa. That’s not so bad, right?
