This coffee like tea was in my health food store – I have tried other Mate teas and they just didn’t do it for me like this one does It brews up to look like coffee but it isn’t - It has a nice smooth taste and it needs no sugar or cream to enjoy - I was pleasantly suprised by how much I liked this tea - I will try the other ones they have It has a very smooth taste to it not bitterness at all - This is an excellent Yerba Mate - and it does give a mild kick to the day -- no jitters at all —

This is a great Rooibos Tea - I was surprised what great tasting tea this is - If you have never tried Rooibos this is one to start with — It smells great when you open package and it brews up this beautiful red - I drink this everyday too - This is my late afternoon eve tea - This is a great bargain too - I paid 12.99 on amazon for 16 oz - Their web site has a higher price for some reason - It tastes like a really good smooth Rooibos tea — I would recommend this tea to try

drank JavaVana Mate by Teavana
5 tasting notes

I have done lots of Mate teas and this one just didn’t do it for me – I like a lot of Teavana teas but this one didn’t do it I was very disappointed with this - It doesn’t have enough of mate -
I don’t like Teavana other mates either -They all have some flavor like raspberry lemonade - when open them up they smell terrific but they don’t taste very strong — It takes alot of the tea to make tea or iced tea - I think that flavor mix sounds great but is over whelming - I am hope they change the formula for them
This doesn’t have a good kick either - I have tried making it very strong and nothing - very disappointed and my search will continue for Java mate teas —

drank Cacao by Tisano

One of my favorite teas - This is not a creamy hot chocolate kind of tea – This is a wonderful company they make excellent drinks - This is a very strong taste of dark chocolate - I try my teas without anything so I can really taste the tea and this smells wonder – When you open up the can it is wonderful smelling - I love my hot water brewer because it makes your tea temp taste just right – I think if someone doesn’t brew this at right temp you may not like it - If you love chocolate then this a great tea for you -
