First I want to thank thank the sTEAp Shoppe for this wonderful sample!!!
Dry smell: The dry smell is like a mix between mint chocolate chip ice cream and a crunch bar. It is a very sweet, sugary smell with a slightly fruity note underneath.
Taste: This is the first mate I’ve ever had and it has a very interesting taste. I can taste the mint and the cocoa flavors, but what I assume is the mate flavor is the strongest. It’s a kind of sweet and sour taste. It’s not a flavor like anything tried before but it’s good. There is an extremely sweet mint chocolate chip aftertaste that lasts for a long time after your last sip.
