Attention all chocolate tea lovers! Don't miss out on this delicious blend of roasted Yerba Mate, rich dark chocolate, and natural hazelnut.
If you're missing Teavana's MateVana and seeking a substitute, Hazelnut Chocolate tea is your answer. This hazelnut mocha blend embodies the spirit of the much-loved tea with its deep hazelnut and chocolate notes.
Yerba mate is a tea variant brewed from the leaves and stems of a South American native plant with a distinct earthy flavor. Despite being herbal, this tea has a high level of caffeine. Maté is popular for a boost of energy and concentration.
The combination of hazelnut undertones with the sweetness of the chocolate chips results in an irresistible chocolate hazelnut tea. The marigold flowers add a hint of floral scent while enhancing the silky texture.
How to prepare maté tea:
1. Heat water to around 150°F (65°C), the ideal temperature for steeping maté tea.
2. Use about 1 tablespoon of Hazelnut Chocolate tea per cup of water. Adjust the amount according to your taste preferences.
3. Place the maté tea leaves in a tea infuser. Pour the hot water over the leaves and let it steep for 3-5 minutes. Steeping time can vary depending on your desired strength.
4. After steeping, remove tea infuser and enjoy!
Remember, maté tea has a high caffeine level, so be mindful of your caffeine intake if you are sensitive to it.
For those who prefer a creamy delight, simply add a bit of cream and sugar to your mocha hazelnut. You'll have a luxurious treat that will satiate your desire for both tea and chocolate.
So, indulge in a cup of Hazelnut Chocolate and savor the flawless blend of flavors that will have you yearning for more.
