So I like mate blends…but I guess I’m not a huge fan of straight mate? The taste reminds me of the smell of hay. I did, however, like it when I steeped it with some crystallized ginger and then added sugar. I think next time I’m going to look for one without so many stems and so much dust, though.
3 Tasting Notes
This tea wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either. The smell is incredible, but the taste itself doesn’t taste much like ginger, and it has a medicinal taste to it that I’m not too fond of. However, I found that if you mix this with My Morning Mate (also Teavana) the resulting tea is way better than either one is alone.
A little bland for my liking, unless you use a ton. Overall it does have a nice flavor and it gives a decent energy boost, but I’d like something with a stronger taste for a morning tea.
