Notes on this blend……Ratio of 3 parts Vanilla Black from Harney & Son’s to 1 part Roasted Yerba Mate from Upton Tea Imports. So long JavaVana Mate, you have been replaced!
It lacks the cappucino flavor that JavaVana Mate has, but it will not be missed. I am so pleased! This tastes similar to coffee, but with vanilla added. Love the boost I get from the yerba mate.
Thank you Teavana for being you. Necessity is the mother of invention in this case…that your prices made me look for an inexpensive alternative and with teas/herbals from the companies I love. Now, I am not limited to one flavor of tea and yerba mate…I have as far as my imagination (and my serious stash of tea) can take me. Also, thank you for showing me that I do like yerba mate…just not on its own.
24 oz teapot, 4 1/2 actual tsp Vanilla Black from Harney & Son’s, 1 1/2 actual tsp Roasted Yerba Mate from Upton Tea Imports, freshly boiled water, 5 minute steep. Sweetened. Yum!
