“Chocolate Rocket” is a chocolate yerba maté by DavidsTea. I’ve had chocolate flavoured yerba maté before, so I was intrigued by this unique and rich blend that is flavoured with raspberry, almond, and chicory. The description of the tea printed on my packet is fairly accurate, though it portrays a sequence of rapid, intense, flavours (capitalization is mine, for emphasis):
Wow, sounds like an adventure to me… like I was stranded on a chocolate island, and paddled my boat through an ocean storm of raspberries, only then to find my whole experience was a diversion from the fact that scientists had infused me with maté as part of a grander experiment (spoilers!)…
In all seriousness, the flavours are all there, and they are remarkably smooth and complement each other wonderfully. I really enjoy this tea, and the almond and raspberry flavours are a pleasant addition to the rich flavour of dark chocolate and the smooth, robust, yerba maté base. Plus, lets not forget that it helps satisfy those chocolate cravings!
