I was very nervous to try this tea. I have stood by the notion that I do not like green yerba mate for a long time now… and this is pure, fresh, unflavored and unfettered green yerba mate. I was certain I wouldn’t like it.
But I was wrong. This is really refreshing. It tastes really good. It doesn’t have that overly earthy quality that I normally associate with yerba mate. It isn’t smoky. It is slightly sweet and just barely vegetative. Very pleasant. And invigorating!
