    Losing Weight

    Posted by Cynthia on May 14th 2018

    Tried this blend hoping to replace an old favorite which is no longer available. I usually mix one tesp of this with two tsp of plain green mate. It adds flavor and cuts some of the natural bitterness of the herb. It is also good "straight up"--actually probably better than my mixture which I drink for financial reasons as I get a lot more mileage from a packet of the flavored mate. I usually add a little honey or agave and light cream...just a drop. I'm finding it has some lovely effects on my health...regulating my intestines and reducing my appetite. I have been happily losing weight since I began drinking this every day. The tea arrived promptly following my order and I have no complaints with the customer service.

    This tea is a "go-to" if you are looking for a deep flavored, rich cup of tastiness. I'd take this flavorful cup of chocolate cake over cake by the ocean any day of the week. :)

    My Daily Fix

    Posted by Terry on Mar 19th 2015

    I stopped drinking coffee several years ago, and started using mate teas. I started looking for on-line options due to the high cost of store brands, and lucked into Roasted Cocoa Yerba Mate. It has become my days-off tea, when I can relax to enjoy a full pot. This tea has the depth of coffee. Brew it strong and add cream for a rich cup!

    Replaces my morning cup of coffee

    Posted by Lisa on Mar 22nd 2013

    The nice thing about having Tea in the morning (instead of coffee) is that I save calores and fat. I generally load my cup of coffee with flavored creamer. With this tea I don't need to do that. It's great to have a good alternative and cut a few calories while I enjoy what I'm drinking.

    The scent of chocolatey scumptiousness!

    Posted by C B on Sep 23rd 2012

    Fusion has my favorite blends. An amazing list of ingredients for this one, as usual. Fusion is so inventive! I think this is my first roasted mate. The flavor of this one reminds me slightly of BBQ sauce. Don’t be scared, it doesn’t actually taste like BBQ sauce… just reminded me of it somehow. It tastes like a mild coffee with a LITTLE bit of a chocolate flavor. Very roasty and earthy. I just wish there was more flavor, but it is still very very good.

    Love This Blend

    Posted by Brian on Sep 14th 2011

    I think roasted cocoa mate is great on its own, but I have started adding it to different herbal tea blends for an extra kick of cocoa flavor. It was become one of my "must have" blends.
