I’m trying to get caught up. Again. Ugh.
This tisane made me happy. Mostly because it reminded me a lot of a tisane that I crafted back in my tea blending days. Back when I came up with the blend that is similar to this, I was looking for something that would satisfy my coffee craving. Back then, I had just resigned from coffee drinking because I realized that it was responsible for me feeling sick by late morning. Every morning, around 11 am, I would start feeling really nauseous and when I stopped drinking coffee the nausea also stopped. Coincidence? I think not.
But even though I didn’t miss that nausea, I did miss the flavor of coffee so the coffee inspired Yerba Mate that I made helped satisfy that craving for me. And this Nutty Mocha mate reminded me a lot of that tisane I blended.
It tastes a lot like the mochas you can find in the expensive coffee shops. Sweet, nutty flavor of hazelnut and a hint of chocolate. I do wish that this had a little more chocolate flavor.
