This one just taste like dirty water to me very sad not sure if I have ever had mate before and if it has more of an earthy flavor ? But this is not my cup of tea :( very sad
Thank you dinosara for sending this to me so I can try it!

How long did you steep it for? With Mate you can steep it for a long time – 10 minutes or even longer without bitterness. I do recommend a slightly lower temperature, around 195 degrees F.

By the way, yes, Mate does have an earthy flavor, but, I am surprised that earthy is all you tasted in this.

I didn’t get much chocolate in this one either even with a really long steep. With a bit of milk and sugar it’s a bit better though. I’m not sure what temp I used but I steeped it for a long time.

I am New to the Tea world, Thanks to my wonderful sister in law Care, she has opened my eyes to the wonderful world of tea! I started off loving only black tea and have now moved to loving all sorts of flavors and styles, I spend allot of my time reading and cross stitching so tea is where i get my serenity from, I hope to share my thoughts on the blends I buy and my sister in law makes! and hope you enjoy the journey of tea as much as I am.

Bellow are a few of my fave Quotes:

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
― C.S. Lewis

“Take some more tea," the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly.
“I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone, “so I can’t take more.”
“You mean you can’t take less,” said the Hatter: “it’s very easy to take more than nothing.”
“Nobody asked your opinion,” said Alice.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

“There are few nicer things than sitting up in bed, drinking strong tea, and reading.”
― Alan Clark
