74 Tasting Notes
This tea has an up-front jasmine-y fragrance and taste. Not like other pu-ehrs I’ve tried so not what I was hoping for.
Also don’t know why the box says caffeine free, since mate has about 50% the caffeine of coffee: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yerba_mate
It tastes more like carob than chocolate to me. The bag yields a fairly weak cup; a little tastier once I added almond milk, but still wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase this. Would be better if the bags were filled with more than a scant 1 1/2 teaspoons. Next time I’ll use 2 bags.
Deliciously refreshing chilled – fruity and fragrant without being too sweet. Just an undercurrent of a bit of spice that balances it out well. Didn’t enjoy it as much hot, but I’ll be making this all summer.
