TeaTime Treats: Chocolate Rocket


With Module II of my Yoga Teacher Training starting tomorrow, I know that I’ll be heavily reliant on my delicious Chocolate Rocket tea from David’s to help me through! I don’t drink coffee, but waking up at 6am for a 9 hour day of learning and practice can really leave me wanting an energy boost! Normally, I’ll drink green tea, but sometimes it’s just not enough. Chocolate Rocket is a solution to that problem.

David’s Chocolate Rocket tea is a mate tea featuring raspberries, almonds, cocoa and chicory root. Chocolate Rocket is probably one of my all time favourite teas because it smells absolutely divine! Seriously, one whiff and you will fall in love and that’s before even tasting it! Once you do have a taste you’ll love the benefits and boost you’ll get because mate tea is incredible at providing energy to the morning, as it is the most caffeinated tea there is! It gives the jolt of coffee (without the shakes and jitters) combined with the health benefits of your daily tea, in fact mate tea contains more antioxidants than green! Chicory root you may know, is often used as a caffeine substitute for coffee because of it’s taste and odour. ┬áThe energy boost combined with the delicious (and my personal favourite) dessert flavour combination of cocoa, almonds and raspberry makes for an extremely satisfying and delicious way to start the day!

A Quick Break from our Regularly Scheduled Programming

I don’t have a “real” post for you today because I am currently on my fourth day of 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training! I am so excited about this experience and so far have nothing but amazing things to say about the program, the teachers and my peers! While I’m off doing this I would love to hear what you would like to see more of or any suggestions or ideas for posts. I think it would be interesting to write about my first module of my teacher training experience and have some great natural product reviews and recipes coming soon also! I love hearing your feedback!

Thanks for your patience!
