What happens when you mix chocolate, coffee beans, carob and cream? You get the richest, darkest, most satisfying drink around. That’s right – the Mudslide. You know it as a frozen cocktail made with vodka, coffee liqueur and Irish cream – maybe even a scoop of ice cream if you’re feeling wild. Our rooibos version tastes just as decadent, but won’t give you a sugar rush or a hangover. It’s rich, creamy and dangerously addictive. Just try to resist…
Ingredients: Rooibos, carob, coffee beans, chocolate chips (sugar, cocoa mass, cocoa powder, cocoa butter, sunflower lecithin), natural flavouring.
Price: $7.98 per 50g

I don’t know why I waited so long to review this one because it’s one of my favourites right now, but here it is. I surprisingly love this blend, it reminds me of mocha latte, but even better. I’m not a coffee drinker AT ALL, so I wasn’t sure if I’d like this, but turns out its AMAZING iced with soy milk. It’s got that mocha-y taste, without it being overwhelming, and the carob which makes it nice and rich, but there’s also the sweet chocolate taste as well. Its amazing. I could drink iced lattes all day. I tried it with some chocolate agave too and it’s just as good. Love love love!!
Flavors: Chocolate, Coffee, Mocha, Sweet
Finishing off my Cocktail collection reviews is Mudslide. This one stood out like a sore thumb in this collection – it’s very dessert-y and bold in comparison to the rest. I brewed this one up hot, unlike the rest, which I reviewed iced. I taste a lovely earthy base note of red rooibos with depth from the coffee and carob, and finally a sweetness from the chocolate. I was actually expecting this to be sweeter, but I’m glad it’s not. Coffee-flavoured teas are always something I’m intrigued by, but they never seem to live up to my expectations. I think that if I want something coffee-flavoured, I’d prefer to drink a cup of decaf coffee over a coffee-flavoured tea.
Flavors: Burnt Sugar, Coffee, Dark Chocolate, Earth, Sweet
“Oddly accurate” as my mother describes it. The rooibos base is great (flavours of honey, cake, sweet and rooibosy goodness), creamy mocha coffee, carob, rich cocoa, milk (despite no milk ingredients in this blend), and coffee beans. The cocoa + cream + coffee + sweet rooibos is just perfect for the name of the blend. I’m impressed at the unique blend, as I’ve not had coffee flavoured tea before. Plus, this is low caffeine (trace amounts from the coffee beans and chocolate chips, but not the same levels as a black base.
This is sweet enough on its own, but it is fabulous iced or hot. Both ways would be good with milk, especially almond or cashew milk for a nutty taste.

I was super-excited to try this new tea. I really, really wanted to love it. I had heard that it tasted a lot like Mocha Latte, which I love. And it is definitely similar to Mocha Latte, but I would say that the coffee flavour and carob is more pronounced in this one. I enjoy the chocolate side more than the coffee side. So, I did not end up enjoying this one as much as I had hoped. I tried it as a hot tea with some milk. I had been planning to pick up 250g when I walked into the store, but thought I should try it first….and I am relieved that I did because this one is not for me. I picked up a tiny bit to take home and try again in other ways, but I think I will never enjoy this one like I love Mocha Latte. If you were looking for a Mocha Latte with a stronger coffee component, this may be the tea for you! I know a lot of people love this one! It is just not for me.
