3 Tasting Notes
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.
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.
