drank Kokomate by Tiesta Tea
95 tasting notes

I can’t decide about this tea.

I drink mates primarily during what’s known in my house as ‘migraine week’ because they help keep the migraines at bay. I’ve been sticking with Matevana and Mocha Nut Mate but have always wanted a little more variety for those times as mates seem to be variations of the same flavor. Granted, I didn’t expect this one to be terribly different, except that it has coconut and cinnamon.

I just can’t decide. The roasty, toasty mate flavor is there, much like the Mocha nut mate but there’s a sweetness there too and I can’t decide if it’s cloying, wrong in combination with the mate, or totally right. It at times wants to taste vaguely pina colada-y, sometimes rooibosy, and sometimes matey. It’s quite confusing.

I do know I don’t dislike it, but I probably wouldn’t order it again, at least at this time.

I’m Amanda, and I’m new to the world of tea. I got sucked in by a sample at Teavana and have been exploring ever since. I prefer loose tea but will slum it with the occasional, high quality bag.

I live just outside Chicago with my husband and our dog.
