About Maté Mantra Chai

Tea Type : Black Tea

Tea Forté’s Mate Mantra Chai is an extraordinary black tea blend, bringing together the sweet flavor of cocoa with the warmth of chicory and cinnamon. Built on a base of black tea leaves and South American yerba mate, it draws upon the spiced tea traditions of India and the harvests of Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Brazil. Rich, bold, and indulgent, this smooth-drinking black tea is naturally sweet and smoky, with notes of chocolate announcing themselves right up front and then giving way to a woody base.

While this blend contains no coffee beans, coffee lovers are drawn to its vivacious flavor profile, which offers depth and body similar to a gourmet cup of java. It also delivers a subtle, steady kick of energy thanks to its moderate caffeine content. Yerba mate, a species of holly, has long been consumed for vitality across many South American countries and has experienced a recent rise in popularity across North America. It was originally cultivated by indigenous Guaraní and Tupi communities. In Brazil, mate is more commonly referred to as chimarrão.

Mate Mantra Chai may be enjoyed with milk or sugar to taste, and in fact is enhanced by added sweetness, which can bring out its chocolate and chicory notes. It may also be prepared as a latte with warm, frothed milk, topped with cinnamon. All the same, many tea enthusiasts prefer it without accompaniment, allowing this bold blend to hold its own.

      Not your average Chai

      I normally love all Chai teas but this isn’t one of them. Maybe it’s the Yerba Mate but there is something that is a bit off. I love the upfront taste of chocolate but the ending is a lost. All in all I am sure that those you are accustomed to Mate will love it.

      Love this chai!

      I’m pretty particular about chai too- most not strong enough. This tea is delicious- smooth, flavorful with wonderful spices. Mix with a little cream and sugar and it’s a delicious cup of tea!

      I've had the vanilla Veda Chai and loved it, so when that ran out, I wanted to try this kind to compare. Soooo so good! It has all the chai flavors I love, plus a nice hint of chocolate.

      Very tasty

      I enjoy Maté Mantra Chai in the morning, especially mixed with Sweet Orange Spice. It makes a great wake-me-up tea topped off with cream.

      Just do yourself a favor and try it!

      I think this a perfect year-round tea! I have given it to many friends when invited to their homes, without ever hearing a negative criticism! This is another tea I have with just a touch of sugar, and enjoy it for desert!

      Head spinning flavor burst in a hot cup

      So well spiced and flavorful, this tea needs nothing added to it, but it stands up well to a splash of milk. In a word, yummmmmmmy!

      Great tea.

      This is my favorite caffeinated tea. Great body, but no bitterness. Love the spice combination.

      Super delicious Herbal Chai tea

      A great energizing morning, or anytime tea, without the caffeine. Delicious plain or with added milk and honey.
