So I dumbed down the steeping and found that it wasn’t as overwhelmingly tart as it was the first time. But all the same, the hibiscus and citrus pretty much end up overwhelming any yerba maté flavour that might have been present. If someone gave me a cup of this without telling me what it was, I’d never be able to guess that maté was the primary ingredient in it.

If I was a fan of hibiscus I might be inclined to give this tea another chance, but I’m not so half of this tea will likely go into the Travelling Teabox and the other half will be put up for adoption (any takers?).

Cool, there’s about 18 teabags left and if I donate half to the teabox that’ll leave 9 for you, if that’s okay?

Jaime

That’s definitely more than enough! If you want to put more than 9 in the TTB, please go ahead.

Jillian

Okay will do – now do I have your address?

Jaime

I’ll pm you!

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
