OK so I actually used the drip coffee maker to brew this as suggested. I’m not as excited today about it as I was yesterday. Maybe a little too earthy. This is a very strong mate. I was pretty excited for the boost of energy late in the afternoon yesterday. Not bad, just not sure if it will be my thing. I generally enjoy mate and was excited to try this one. It stays true to the Paraguay cutting methods. It has a lot of powder in the grind. It will make you think someone is mowing your yard by the smell whill it is brewing and it definitely has some of that in the taste also. Overall not a bad tea and I will probably keep some on hand for when I need a pick me up.

I just recently got into the loose tea thing. The flavor and quality sucked me in all the way. Tea has now become a major part of my lifestyle. I am really trying to experience every tea I can get my hands on.
I work for Verizon Wireless and Dish Network and live in a small town in Oklahoma. Needless to say we don’t have an abundance of resources around for loose leaf tea drinkers. I have to do most of my shopping online so any tips, hints or leads would be appreciated.
